About Dry Feb
Dry Feb is a fundraiser that challenges you to go alcohol-free in February, and raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. It helps you get healthy and clear your head while also raising funds to make a difference for Canadians affected by cancer.
How it all works
1. Sign-up to the challenge
2. Go alcohol-free in February
3. Ask friends and family to sponsor you
4. Help people affected by cancer
Proceeds from Dry Feb will benefit the Canadian Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking research and provide a national support system for people affected by cancer, such as help getting to and from life-saving treatment appointments or wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
Giving up alcohol for a month is a small sacrifice to make to help people affected by cancer, and the good news is that it will benefit you too!
Taking part in Dry Feb also gives you the chance to focus on yourself – you’ll notice your own drinking habits and the value of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. The sobering news is that any type or amount of alcohol increases your cancer risk. In fact, in 2017, an estimated 8,000 cancers diagnosed in Canada were related to alcohol consumption.
Having a month off alcohol also has other great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself. It's a win-win!
