About Toupee for a Day™ Zumba® Challenge

Toupee for a Day™ Zumba® Challenge is a signature fundraiser for Wellspring Calgary. Register online, pay or fundraise a minimum of $50, and participate in a Zumba® class at any World Health location in Calgary. “Zumba” in support of anyone living with cancer. The only requirement is that participants wear their colourful toupee for the class or just wear it during the day. By registering for a class or wearing your toupee, participants will raise vital funds and awareness for Wellspring Calgary.

World Health Calgary has been a key supporter of Toupee for a Day™ and their Zumba® flash mob has always been a fan favourite. This event has been instrumental in bringing attention to those living with cancer and supported the fundraising efforts for Wellspring Calgary.

The Wellspring “toupee” has been created using 10 different colours of “hair”. The “hair” represents a variety of different coloured cancer ribbons, including a lavender ribbon for supporters. The many colours of “hair” represents the inclusiveness of Wellspring Calgary in that they are the only cancer support centre in the city supporting anyone with any type of cancer, at any time in their cancer journey. The emotional journey faced by people diagnosed with cancer, as well as those who support them, is very similar regardless of the type of cancer. Wellspring Calgary supports ALL people affected by any type of cancer and all cancer supporters.

Participants can register by clicking on this link – every gift over $10 will receive a charitable receipt. Participants can register as a team or as an individual. Each participant will have a personal fundraising page where they can tell their personal story and collect donations. Once the participants have reached a minimum fundraising goal of $50 per person they will be able to participate in a Zumba® class at a World Health location of their choice and will be provided with a colourful toupee to wear during the class.
