There are no costs involved in joining the Reset Challenge. Registration is free. All you need to do is set yourself a fundraising goal. There are three fundraising goals to guide you; $100, $500 and $1000.

There are no set or specific rules to follow with Reset Challenge. It’s all about selecting and sticking to a personal challenge that will make a positive difference in YOUR life. We encourage those who register to ask family friends and work mates to sponsor their challenge to raise funds for Sir David Martin Foundation. We would hope that anyone taking part would also be honest with their supporters and do their very best to stay on track with their challenge – i.e. commit to doing their challenge every day for 30 days.

We understand that life is unpredictable and sometimes unforeseen things happen that can derail your challenge. You can keep your supporters updated via your fundraising page and your social media accounts regarding any disruptions to your progress.
