About National Bandanna Day


National Bandanna Day is CanTeen’s largest fundraiser and aims to raise $1.3 million this year to support young people living with cancer. Every year, another 23,000 young people (63 a day) have to deal with the challenge of cancer. And we get it. Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer crashes into a young person’s world and shatters everything. CanTeen is the game changer.

There are many ways that you can show your support and help us raise funds for young people when cancer crashes into their world:

  • Order a box of bandannas to sell in October
  • Volunteer your time at one of our pop-up sites
  • Host a fundraiser– from bake sales to casual dress days, we will support you the whole way!


Your support will make a real difference to young people like Farrah.

“CanTeen friends are more like family- you talk to them and they just understand how hard it is. We support each other and that’s how we get through it, together”- Farrah, Offspring and Sibling Member
