The Rules – how Dry Feb works

The rules of Dry Feb are simple: sign up and stop drinking for the month of February. Also, reach out to family and friends and ask them to sponsor you for taking part. The money you raise will help raise vital funds for the Canadian Cancer Society to make a difference for Canadians affected by cancer.

Proceeds from Dry Feb will benefit the Canadian Cancer Society and will fund groundbreaking research, as well as provide a support system for people affected by cancer – like the free Cancer Information Service, which helps people across the country by answering questions on all types of cancer, treatments, side effects and much more.

Step 1

Sign-up to the challenge and choose how long you will be participating

Step 2

Go alcohol-free in February

Step 3

Ask family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you

Step 4

Help people affected by cancer

Why alcohol?

Not only does a month off alcohol have many health benefits, but the sobering news is that any type or amount of alcohol increases your cancer risk.

Through Dry Feb, we are looking to raise awareness about the link between cancer and alcohol, promote the idea that we can modify our alcohol consumption to reduce cancer risk and raise funds to support the Canadian Cancer Society’s work.

Sign up for FREE

Signing up to Dry Feb is free, and there is no minimum fundraising amount. We recommend you set yourself a fundraising goal and see if you can achieve it by asking family and friends to donate to your alcohol-free month.

Golden Tickets

The rules for Dry Feb are to stop drinking for the month of February. However, if you have a special occasion in February, you can buy a Golden Ticket. A Golden Ticket gives a Dry Feb participant a night off their challenge. For a minimum $25 donation, even a night off can still make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.
