EVENT FAQs

COVID–19

 
  • Whilst Covid has changed the way we do things, what hasn’t changed is our commitment to your health and safety.

  • Are the Unite for Hope face-to-face events COVID safe?

    Our COVID Safe plan complies with the latest government health guidelines in each capital city. We will monitor any updates and advice from the relevant authorities to ensure our event day complies. This varies across each event site so please check your local event page for further details.

  • What if the face-to-face event gets cancelled?

    Your registration fee will be converted to a donation should we have to cancel one of our face-to-face events due to COVID-19. We will not provide refunds. These funds will help cover non-recoverable costs of the event and go toward research to save lives. If you have already registered for a face-to-face event, luckily, we have a contingency plan in place with our DIY option and we can simply rollover your face-to-face registration to our DIY event!

EVENT DAY (MELBOURNE, SYDNEY & BRISBANE)

    Registrations on the day will not be offered to help manage crowd density, maximise contactless procedures, and minimise risk. All participants are required to register online prior to the event.

     

  • Can I bring my dog to the event?

    You are permitted to bring your four-legged friend to Melbourne and Brisbane, however, consider those around you by keeping your pooch on a leash at all times and cleaning up after your fur baby. Regretfully if you have registered for our Sydney based location, this event takes place in Wildlife Protection Areas so sadly no dogs can attend.

     

  • Is there parking available?

    This varies across each event site so please check your local event page for details. We do encourage you to take public transport where possible.

     

  • What happens if it rains?

    Our face-to-face events will still go ahead, rain - hail or shine, unless there is a significant danger to participants because of lightning, storms, or strong winds. Participants should be prepared for all weather conditions - bring your raincoat and a smile. You will be advised if we need to reschedule our event due to inclement weather (but keep your fingers crossed for good weather).

     

  • Are the face-to-face events accessible for prams and wheelchairs?

    Yes! We’ve made sure that all our event courses are accessible for prams and wheelchairs. Some courses do have minor bumps or go on sections of loose gravel so be mindful of your ability to manoeuvre on various surfaces. Please refer to your local event page for accessibility details.

     

  • I’d like to volunteer - where do I go for more information?

    If you’d like to join us and become part of the ever-expanding volunteer family, we’d love to hear from you. Register your interest

     

FUNDRAISING

 
  • Can you tell me how much of the funds raised goes directly to Pancare Foundation?

    All proceeds from fundraising go towards providing vital patient support services and channelling funds into research for early detection and new treatments. You can be assured that every single dollar helps!

  • What is the best way to fundraise?

    Asking people to donate can feel a bit overwhelming, but you’ll be surprised at how simple it is and how supportive your family, friends and colleagues are when you’re supporting a great cause. The simplest way to fundraise is to ask people to donate to your fundraising page that is allocated to you at the time of registering for the event. Have a look at our fundraising checklist here for some great ideas.

  • Workplace giving

    Workplace giving is an easy way to donate direct from your salary. Most companies match donations, so it’s also an easy way to double your fundraising amount! When you visit your fundraising page, you’ll see a ?nate from your pay?utton. If your employer (or your supporters’ employer) appears in the list, then you can donate through your pay, pre-tax, through Workplace Giving.
