About the Event
Your student will join students from over 50 high schools for our first ever Night for the Fight: Fight Week to raise money for CancerFree KIDS to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. In 2021, we have introduced N4TF Fight Week, a weeklong event of challenges in the Fight Week app, to continue to provide an interactive and exciting experience for our students while also following local health and safety guidelines.
Your Student's Requirements
- Initial registration is $25 and all students must raise a total of $125 by March 4, 2021 to participate in Fight Week. Students who raise $125 by February 22 will receive an event t-shirt and swag bag. The $25 registration fee does count toward this total. Fundraising resources for your student can be found under the "Student" tab above and in the Night for the Fight Event Guide.
- Students can earn incentives as they achieve higher fundraising levels. The top 3 student fundraisers will receive money towards college. View all fundraising incentives and prizes here.
- N4TF Fight Week begins on March 6 and concludes on March 13. During this time, your student will have access to an app called Goose Chase to complete the Fight Week challenges.
- Your student registered online and agreed to the student expectations and code of conduct. If your student breaks the code of conduct, a team member from the CancerFree KIDS will notify you and further action may be taken. You can view the student code of conduct here.
- Every parent/guardian agrees to the parent/guardian waiver either at their student's time of registration or via e-mail after their student registers. Here is the parent/guardian waiver you agreed to.
- You are invited to join in on the livestream program on March 13 that will conclude Fight Week. During this time we will celebrate our fundraising success, highlight the Fight Week Champions and honor kids who have battled childhood cancer. You will receive more information about the livestream as the date approaches.
Things to Note
- Challenges within the Fight Week app are designed to greatly limit the amount of driving you or your student will need to do to complete them.
- Your student may be eligible for service hours for their participation. At the conclusion of Fight Week, CancerFree KIDS will send a list of students' names and their estimated hours to their school. Your student's high school has the final say regarding their service hour eligibility from participation in Night for the Fight.
Our first ever Night for the Fight: Fight Week has been implemented to protect the health and safety of our student participants, volunteers, staff and all individuals associated with Night for the Fight. For those familiar with our event in the past, we recognize the impossibility of implementing COVID-19 safety protocols and social distancing at our traditional overnight event. We are looking forward to this year's Fight Week, which will continue to provide an interactive experience for our students to have fun while raising money for life-saving childhood cancer research.
