How much wilderness can you fit into one day?

Last call for Challenges!

Register a one (1) day outdoor activity on the Big Wild Challenge website and raise $100 for wilderness conservation by Oct 15th and you will be eligible to win a fabulous prize including a $100 Mountain Equipment Co-op gift card and $60 CPAWS swag pack!

It’s almost the Thanksgiving long-weekend and that means we're almost at our deadline for awarding prizes for the Big Wild Challenge. The challenge has been going really well; so many Canadians have dedicated their outdoor activities to CPAWS that we’ve already achieved $15,000 of our $20,000 fundraising goal! This is doubly great as MEC will match all funds raised.

With only one week to go, we wanted to give everyone who has thought about doing a challenge, but were worried they just didn’t haven’t had enough time, a chance to get in under the wire. As motivation for you to get out there, we're now offering a new prize category specifically for single day activity challenges!

To be eligible:

1. Register a one day challenge
2. Include "1-day Challenge" in the title of your event when you register (i.e. Jill's 1-day Biking Challenge, or Bob's 1-day Hike for Nature Challenge)
3. Raise a minimum of $100 by Oct 15th 2013 and you will automatically be entered in a draw to win a great prize containing:

  • CPAWS swag pack (ski hat, thermos, T-shirt) valued at $60! AND
  • $100 gift card from MEC!

Register your challenge at today and start fundraising. Our online tool makes it fun & easy.

Get outside, have fun, and feel good supporting protection for Canadian parks and wilderness!
