Can my team be all female or all male?

How do I register my team to take part?
The first step is to register your interest so we can add your company/organisation to our approved list. You will not be able to complete your registration unless you have done this. Once online registration opens your team captain will need to sign up on the website. They’ll need to have all your team member’s contact details handy, including a head and shoulders photograph for each person.

The registration fee is $250 per team, this must be paid by credit or debit card at the time of registration. Please note, the registration fee is non-refundable.
How many teams can my company/organisation enter?
If your company, organisation or community group would like to register more than two teams, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't have a team. Can I compete on my own?
No, this is strictly a team event.
How much fundraising does my team need to do?
Your team fundraising target is $5,000. All teams entering the event must accept a waiver committing to reaching this goal.
Why isn’t my donation showing?
If you donated on the website using a credit card and your donation isn’t showing, please let us know. If you or a sponsor donated via direct credit the donation will appear on the site once we have received it into our bank account.
Can people donate from outside of New Zealand?
Yes. We can accept donations from all over the world. Our website is set up to accept international payments, donors just need to follow the donation steps online.
Where does the money go?
LBC receives no government funding. Funds raised pay for our core services (outcomes) such as patient support, research, information and advocacy. We are supported by voluntary donations such as yours, of which we are most appreciative.
Across all of our activities Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand has a cost ratio of 75% spent on outcomes, 15% spent on fundraising, 10% spent on administration. This means that 75 cents of every dollar spent is applied towards improving outcomes for patients and families across New Zealand impacted by a blood cancer diagnosis.
*Please note the above figures include our administration of the New Zealand Bone Marrow Donor Registry a division of LBC which receives District Health Board funding to secure donors for patients requiring a bone marrow transplant.
How do I pay in cash donations I’ve collected?
You can pay your cash donations using your credit card. Just log in to your fundraising page and follow the instructions on the ‘Manage cash’ tab. You can also deposit your cash and cheque donations at any branch of the Bank of New Zealand (BNZ).
