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 for an important cause. You don’t often get the chance to raise money for charity by not doing something!
Proceeds from Dry Feb will benefit the Canadian Cancer Society to fund life-saving research and compassionate support services such as peer support programs or wigs for women who have undergone cancer treatment.
Giving up alcohol for a month is a small sacrifice to make to help the lives of people affected by cancer, and the good news is - it will benefit you too!
Taking part in Dry Feb also gives you the chance to focus on yourself – notice your own drinking habits and the value of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. The sobering news is that alcohol is one of the top three causes of cancer deaths worldwide. Last year, it is estimated that as many as 10,700 Canadians were diagnosed with cancer linked to their alcohol consumption.
Having a month off alcohol also has 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!
