About Night for the Fight: Fight Week, presented by TQL Foundation
Your students can join students from over 50 high schools for our first ever N4TF 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.
During the week of March 6-13 students from over 50 high schools will participate in N4TF Fight Week in support of CancerFree KIDS to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. During Fight Week, student teams will use the app Goose Chase to complete challenges in the quest to become Fight Week Champions (students must raise $125 by March 4 to participate in Fight Week, students who raise $125 before February 22 will receive a t-shirt). On March 13, Fight Week culminates with a livestream event where we will celebrate our fundraising success, recognize the Fight Week Champions and honor kids who have battled childhood cancer.

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.
