Thank you for choosing to fundraise for Child Cancer Foundation. A Lockdown Challenge is a challenge or activity you run with your friends, family, yourself, or workplace during the lockdown. You can choose to register as a team and compete with each other or as an individual. Here are a few challenge ideas to get you started:

For Businesses – Working Remotely

  • “Crazy Hair Skype Meetings” Organise to have one Skype (or Zoom) meeting per week where everyone comes along with crazy hair, a funny hat, or a wig. Donate on your company page to whoever has the best setup, and compete for bragging rights each week!

  • “Press-up Challenge” Get your gym class, friends, or colleagues to challenge themselves every day to complete 100x press-ups. For every press-up not achieved, donate $1 to the Child Cancer Foundation. Alternatively, rally supporters behind you to donate $10 for every day you achieve your goal. What a great way to be spending that spare gym membership over the coming months!   

For Everyone

  • “Games Night” The lounge is your oyster with this one. Get into teams and choose a few of your favourite games for a fun night in. Set up a page and donate what you would usually be spending on a takeout night, drinks or meal out. E.g. Host a Quiz Night via Skype.

  • “10,000 Steps” Get your friends together to start a page dedicated to walking 10,000 steps per day. A great way to make sure your friends and family are getting outside, and supporting their wellbeing. Have a donations page for others to support you, or to donate on days you don’t make your 10,000 step mark.
