Get Involved

Champions Start Small is a belief held by the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. And just as “Champions Start Small,” so do great fundraising events! Our supporters host fun events that raise funds for our foundation and increase awareness of our cause in their communities. A Draw to the Button Competition, Trivia Competitions, Hog Line Violation Penalties and Scotties Viewing Parties are examples of past events. No idea is too small to help babies born too soon, too small or too sick grow up to become champions like Sandra!

We want to help make your fundraiser a success. Check out our Fundraising Toolkit for templates, tips and tricks for hosting an event in your community.

Curling Club Challenge

Since 2010 more than 100 curling clubs have participated in the Curling Club Challenge and raised over $100,000 by hosting fun events. Curling clubs are helping save the lives of babies born too soon, too small or too sick and keeping Sandra's legacy alive.

Due to COVID, the Curling Club Challenge is on hold until it is safe for clubs and their members to participate in fundraising events.
