No matter how you choose to take on your 55 Squat Challenge, we've got you covered. Take a look at some different ways you might choose to complete your 55 squats a day and raise money for breast cancer research this march.
Challenge colleagues to join you on your 55 Squat Challenge. Put a daily reminder in everyone's calendar and complete your squats together, either at a social distance or virtually.
Speak to your boss or HR team and spread the word about the 55 Squat Challenge. Get your organisation's management team moving, donate to the senior leader you'd most like to take on the challenge.
Ask your workplace to dollar match - this way, every $1 you raise becomes $2! Dollar matching is tax deductible and doubles your impact for breast cancer research.
Dress for success. Complete your squats dressed head to toe in pink, in a public place or virtually on screen. Let friends and family choose your location or costume, for a donation, of course.
Ask your friends and family to donate $55 to your fundraising page. In return, they can nominate the number of squats you complete that day.
Share on socials. Post a video on Instagram or Facebook of you completing your squats and tag a friend to donate $1 per squat.
Ask your gym to hold a squat challenge throughout the month. People will donate to take part and the person who completes 55 squats with the largest weight by the end of the month wins a prize. Share this poster with your gym to get them on board.
Ask an instructor at your gym to offer squat technique sessions for a small donation throughout March. Improve your technique while raising money for vital breast cancer research.
Encourage your gym to run a squat inspired class, donate to take part, workout in pink and have fun and keep active while raising money for breast cancer research.
Go head-to-head with different year groups or classes. Set a weekly challenge to see who can raise the most each week. Announce the winners every Monday and see who will come out on top. Use our 55 Squat Challenge tally chart to keep track.
Complete a 2-hour Squat-athon. Ask everyone in your class to take it in turns to complete 5 minutes of squats. Complete the challenge where there is a lot of foot traffic ask people to make donations as they pass by.
Organise 55 Squat Challenge Pink Up Party. Ask the whole school or lecture group to dress in pink. Come together as a group to complete your squats, take lots of pics and videos and spread the word about the challenge you are taking on. Ask people to support you by making a donation your fundraising page.
"I put out a message on our company email and right away I had about 15 members who signed up to fundraise! We created our own slack group to communicate a daily squat time, share pictures, motivational quotes, and playlist."
- The Sparro Team, 55 Squat Challenge Champions
"Although I have been lucky enough that nobody in my family have been affected by breast cancer, that doesn't mean my daughter one day may not be affected. So I chose to take on the 55 Squat Challenge as a simple way to raise awareness and to help raise money to fund the future of research to make it easier for our children and families down the track."
- Lisa, 55 Squat Challenge Champion
"We decided to join the NBCF team for this challenge because we both have a huge passion for fitness and have seen the impact breast cancer has on a family when my Aunty was diagnosed. A squat challenge to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research was perfect for us."
- Fred & Sarah, 55 Squat Challenge fundraisers
"Having been diagnosed with breast cancer, I wanted to align myself with a charity that meant I could give back to the very people who were quite literally keeping me alive through their research. 55 squats a day meant I could keep my fitness up and raise money for the cause."
