How much does it cost to enter Combat for Cancer?
An entry fee of $80 per person is payable on registration and in a team of four you will need to commit to fundraising a minimum of $1000 (or $250 each). Your registration fees will help cover all event costs so more funds will go towards helping give kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again.
How many people are there on a team?
Your team must have exactly four people to participate in the event to help tackle the obstacles and soldier exercises together!
Is there a minimum age to participate?
All participants must be over the age of 18 to participate in the Combat for Cancer challenge.
How much do I need to raise and where do the funds go?
You will need to commit to raise $250 per person or $1000 as a team. All funds that you raise will help ensure the 8,900 kids facing cancer, who are registered for our services and programs, have the chance to just be kids again and create positive memories that change their cancer story.
What do I need to wear?
All participants are encouraged to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts to complete the course. We would love to see your team take on the challenge in fancy dress or corporate branded clothing. Please do not wear any jewellery, watches or fitness devices while completing the course - we encourage you to leave these at home. GoPro and mobile phones are not able to be taken around the course, but we will have a photographer on the day taking plenty of photos for you to share.
Where is the event and how do I get there?
Combat for Cancer is being held at the Kokoda Barracks off Beechmont Road, Witheren, in the Gold Coast hinterland near Canungra. The main entrance is off Wau Road and it will be signed on the day. There is limited parking on-site so you are best to carpool if possible to the Barracks.
What time does my team start the challenge?
Your start time will be dependant on wave times. These will be released to teams closer to the event, though they will start between 8am and 10am and you will be required to arrive one hour prior to your wave for team check-in and a safety briefing. Your team will receive the allocated wave time one week prior to the event.
How do I fundraise?
The Camp Quality events team is here to support you through all your fundraising efforts. We also have a heap of hints, tips and ideas that will be shared through email in the lead-up to the event. We also have a range of resources available to download that you can use to share your challenge with friends and family. If you need any other help please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
