What is the NF Hero Challenge?

The NF Hero challenge is an opportunity to challenge yourself physically, mentally or emotionally; face a fear or give something up you can’t live without. By doing so, you'll raise money for the Children’s Tumour Foundation and find your inner strength.

Who can register?

Anyone! Whether you’re an individual, a team, a bunch of mates, or an entire sports club – registering for the NF Hero Challenge 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 to sponsor you! 

Download the Parental Consent Form.

Once complete send a scanned copy or photograph to fundraising@ctf.org.au

How much does it cost to register?

It is completely FREE to register and participate in the NF Hero Challenge.

How does it work?
  1. Sign up – register your details to take on a challenge at any time of the year 
  2. Get a team together – stepping up with friends, family or colleagues is way more fun and will help keep you accountable
  3. Start talking about what you are doing and why – we want more people to know about NF and why their donations are important
  4. Do your challenge – make sure you film, photograph or track your journey so that others can see your progress
When and where is the NF Hero Challenge?

The NF Hero Challenge is an online fundraising campaign that runs any time of the year. You decide where and when to complete your challenge.

Where can I get an NF Hero cape from?

You can buy a cape on our online store for just $20! They come in adult and kids sizes and certainly give you that Super Hero vibe!


Where do the funds go that I raise?

The Children’s Tumour Foundation is the leading national body supporting those living with Neurofibromatosis (NF) in Australia. Every 3 days a child is born with NF in Australia yet awareness remains far too low. You'll help fund vital research, create awareness and provide practical support for people with all types of NF.

Is there a minimum amount I have to raise?

Raise as much as you can. Every dollar raised goes towards supporting the NF community. 

The more you raise, the more impact you'll have!

How incredible would it be if you raise $1000. That’s a challenge in and of itself! If you are stuck on how to boost your fundraising, please give us a call on 02 9713 6111, email us at fundraising@ctf.org.au or head to our Get Involved page to see some great tips and hints!

How can I learn more about the Children’s Tumour Foundation and NF?

There is a bunch of great information on our website where you can learn more about Neurofibromatosis and the services we provide.

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 your NF Hero Challenge. From your fundraising page dashboard you can also download your event guide as well as event posters, social posts and email signatures. All available to help make your NF Hero challenge a success.

I've shared my page on Facebook asking for donation using the Facebook Donate button. Will the funds I raise come to the CTF?

Yes, they will, however it will not link with your online fundraising page. If you let us know about your Facebook fundraiser, we can keep track and add this to your page at a later point. Click here to find out how to set up a fundraiser on Facebook.

Why can't you sync my donation from Facebook?

Facebook donations are handled and held by a third party, and Facebook doesn’t have the functionality to sync donations to a fundraisers page at the moment. We’re working with Facebook to try to find a solution for the future, but currently we advise you to let us know if you set up a campaign or post as we do not get notified if you set up a fundraiser.

Can I post my photos or details on the CTF’s social media pages?

Definitely! We’d love to see what you’re up to. You can post your photos directly onto our Facebook and Instagram pages and tag us in stories and posts on Instagram with @ctfaustralia. Don't forget to use the hashtag #conquernf and #nfherochallenge so we can like or share your post!

Who do I contact if I have any other questions?

We're always here to help. Give us a call on 02 9713 6111 or email us at fundraising@ctf.org.au. We are also available on our social media channels. Get in touch!
