We love your enthusiasm! Your kilometres will be tracked once you connect your app and then we will refresh everyone’s stats on 1st March to start 86K for a Cure together.

Can I track my kilometres with Apple?

Yes, if you have an Apple device, you'll need to connect it to one of the three fitness apps we have integrated on the platform (Fitbit, MapMyFitness, Strava, Garmin). 

Each activity you log from your Apple device will then automatically sync through the listed apps onto your fundraising page. 

What if I run or walk more than 86km during March?

You are a Children’s Cancer Institute superstar! Every kilometre you complete will be dedicated to a child diagnosed with cancer.

Do we have to walk OR run or can we cycle or swim?

This is a walk or run challenge for our community, but if you wish to participate doing another activity, that’s ok!
