Campaign Contest Rules & Regulations


The following rules and regulations are applicable to the contest described hereafter (the “Contest”), which is being conducted by Cystic Fibrosis Canada (“CFC”) in connection with CFC’s Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History (the “Walk”). The Contest will consist of two types of draws: (i) monthly draws; and (ii) the Grand Prize draws. The eligibility requirements and methods of entry differ for the monthly draws as compared to the grand prize draws. Details related to each type of draw are described below.

The Contest period begins at 12:00:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) on February 1, 2017, and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. (EST) on June 30, 2017 (the “Contest Period”).


To be eligible for entry in a Contest draw, an individual must be a resident of Canada from the start of the “Contest Period”. Eligible participants must also be over the age of majority in the province of their residence by the end of the “Contest Period” or have the permission of a parent or guardian to accept the reward, if won.

Employees of CFC or the sponsors and prize partners of the Walk, employees of any affiliates of CFC or such sponsors and prize partners, and the immediate family members of any such employees (father/mother, brother/sister, son/daughter) or persons living under the same roof as any such employees are not eligible to win prizes as a result of Contest draws.

Only Registered Walkers (as defined hereinafter) will be eligible for participation in the monthly draws.


No purchase is required.

Entry Details:

To enter, you must be an individual who has registered to participate in the Walk (a “Registered Walker”), by completing the online registration at www.cysticfibrosis.ca/walk prior to the Walk (which is scheduled to take place on May 28, 2017). A registration shall not be considered complete unless, in the course of the registration process, the Registered Walker has (i) provided a valid email address; and (ii) completed the provided waiver agreement.

During the Contest Period, when a Registered Walker achieves or surpasses (in online, verified funds) a fundraising milestone (a “Fundraising Milestone”), as described below, prior to the end of a particular Contest Period month, the name of the Registered Walker will be entered into a draw to win the monthly prize that corresponds to such Fundraising Milestone. The Fundraising Milestones and the prizes related to each are as follows:

Fundraising Milestones[1]

Raise $25 - $99 in online verified funds to be entered to win a $20 coffee gift card

Raise $100 - $249 in online verified funds to be entered to win $50 in movie tickets

Raise $250 - $499 in online verified funds to be entered to win $100 in clothing gift cards

Raise $500+ in online verified funds to be entered to win $250 in pre-paid credit cards.

At the end of each month of the Contest Period CFC will have draws to identify one prize winner for each of the four Fundraising Milestone categories identified above. For the avoidance of doubt, a Registered Walker may achieve or surpass up to four monthly Fundraising Milestones in each month from February to June. For example, a Registered Walker who raises more than $500 in online verified funds during the month of March will have their name entered into the draws carried out at the end of March for each of (i) the coffee card, (ii) the movie tickets, (iii) the clothing gift cards, and (iv) the pre-paid credit cards.

Milestone draws will take place at the end of each month (February to June).
