The Challenge

Earn badges and glory

After registering for the Kosi Challenge, you'll have your own fundraising page set up to help you support the cause and improve the lives of Australians living with a rare, less common or complex cancer.

As you progress on your fundraising journey, you'll unlock badges that will appear on your profile. Compete with friends and family to see who can collect them all first, or use them as checkpoints to aim for and stay on track.

Quick wins

It's easy to unlock your first set of badges! Here are a few simple actions you can take to start decorating your page:

Personalise your fundraising page

You'll earn your first fundraising badge once you personalise your fundraising page.

Simply include a photo - it’s always inspiring to see the people behind a fundraising campaign.

Then, add a message to your supporters - think about what you want to achieve and why you have chosen this cause. Your 500 words or less can make a major difference.

Post your first Kosi update

Climbing Australia's largest mountain or taking on your own goal to match this in our virtual challenge is no easy feat.

Take your supporters on the journey with you by sharing updates of what you're doing to prepare and motivate yourself (e.g. training photos, progress updates, fundraising achievements).

Posting your first update will earn you a badge. Plus, showing people your passion for the cause may lead to more support for your efforts!

Share your page

You can also earn a badge by spreading the word.

On your fundraising page, you will find shareable links to use across multiple channels.

Share your page on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Email it to your friends and family. Post, tweet and capture your training regime to show friends and family your dedication and commitment. Don’t forget to tag your posts with #kosichallenge.
