How do I register?

What if I have trouble registering?
Participants can contact the Lung Association, Alberta & NWT at 1-888-566-5864 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with the registration process.
Once I register, do I have to wait until November 2nd 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 2, 2020 – December 1, 2020) to be eligible for prizing.
What happens if I slip up?
If participants slip up, we encourage them to quit again. Unfortunately, only those who quit and remain smoke-free for the full 30 days will be eligible to receive a free turkey/turkey prize.
Do I have to donate or fundraise to participate?
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.
