About the 55 Squat Challenge

55 Australians are diagnosed with breast cancer every day in Australia. Ageing population, health and lifestyle factors and better detection have all contributed to an increase in breast cancer diagnoses rates. 

That is why we need your help now more than ever to fund crucial breast cancer research so that we can change the stats. We challenge you to complete 55 squats for 31 days this March and raise funds for breast cancer research. Breast cancer doesn't stop, and neither can we. Are you ready to squat for breast cancer research?


How It Works

Level up throughout the Month

Level up throughout March, reach fundraising milestones and unlock our 55 Squat Challenge levels.


Make a self-donation to your fundraising page on registration and kick start your 55 Squat Challenge at beginner level.


When you raise $150 you'll reach intermediate level and receive a free NBCF resistance band, proven to help improve strength and toning.

This is what we're up against

"I was unfortunate to lose my mum to breast cancer. Taking on challenges like the 55 Squat Challenge, raising awareness and receiving donations gives me a proud sense of accomplishment. Being part of the NBCF community is enriching, it's powerful to feel a sense of belonging, knowing I am helping to make a real difference to the lives of people I don't event know."
