Who can register?
Anyone! Whether you're an individual, a team, a bunch of mates, or an entire construction site - registering for GO PINK is easier than you might think. If you're under 16, you'll just have to get parental consent first (it's a legal thing) - but use it as an excuse to get them signed up too!
What is a PINK pledge?
A pink pledge is your commitment to GO PINK and WEAR IT, SHAVE IT or COLOUR IT to raise funds this June.
WEAR IT can mean making a pledge to wear pink for a day, a week or the whole month. It can also mean making a pledge to GO PINK in your own way.
SHAVE IT means making a pledge to shave your hair, beard or moustache.
COLOUR IT means making a pledge to spray or dye your hair.

Is there a minimum amount I have to raise?
Raise as much as you can. Every dollar raised goes towards funding game-changing breast cancer research - the more you raise, the more research NBCF can fund. How awesome would it be if you reached your target! If you're stuck on how to boost your fundraising total, give us a call on 1300 803 551 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I haven't received my fundraising pack.
You will receive your digital fundraising pack via email within 2-3 business days of registering. Please check your junk folder if you can't find your digital welcome pack email. If you have entered an incorrect email please email email@example.com and we'll be able to resend your digital welcome pack.
Most of the items from your digital fundraising pack can be downloaded from the dashboard of your fundraising page by clicking on the Resources tab.
How can I learn more about the research NBCF funds?
Since 1994, when NBCF was first established, we have invested nearly $200M into almost 600 research projects. In that time, the death rates from breast cancer in Australia have reduced by 43% thanks in large part to research in prevention, early detection and new and improved breast cancer treatments.
What resources are available?
We want to make fundraising easy, so we have some great resources to help you do that. Your best tool is your online fundraising page – easy to set up and easy to share. It is the best way to get donations and spread the word about GO PINK. You will find research, event and Thank You posters, stat tiles and social media tiles and your event guide in your digital welcome pack. You can also download these items from the resources tab of your fundraising page dashboard.
How do I bank any offline fundraising money I raise?
