How do I register?

Participants can register on the registration page. Registration closes promptly at Noon on November 1st, 2019

What if I have trouble registering?

Participants can contact the Lung Association, Alberta & NWT at 1-888-566-5864 or by e-mail at info@ab.lung.ca for assistance with the registration process.

Once I register, do I have to wait until November 4th to officially quit?

No. Participants are welcome to quit before the official start date, however they must remain smoke-free throughout the entire duration of the Challenge (November 4, 2019 – December 4, 2019) to be eligible for prizing.

No, fundraising is not required to participate in the Quit Cold Turkey Challenge. However, we strongly encourage participants to make a donation or collect pledges throughout their journey to quit. The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT is always appreciative of any support given.
