Mining & Energy Challenge

Our special challenge for the resources sector, associated businesses and contractors.

Dig deep for a mighty challenge

Get everyone on site to be brave and shave or colour their hair and help beat blood cancer.

Enter your teams and go for gold!

Pit your team against the energy resources sector in your state, including associated businesses and contractors.  

  • Promote the challenge in your newsletters, emails and noticeboards to encourage staff to sign up!
  • Talk to someone in the office or on onsite who would be keen to hold a fundraising event.
  • Dive straight in! Sign up teams from head office and your sites – invite staff, clients and suppliers to join!

Enter your team in our fun and friendly competition between companies and sites – you’ll be amazed at the results!

What you can win

It doesn’t matter if you’re on site or in head office – you can qualify for our special awards to acknowledge huge support from mining and energy businesses, contractors and suppliers who all dig deep for this vital cause.

Each year, we present a perpetual award to each state's Mining and Energy team that raises the highest amount. 

Each state and territory's challenge and other achievements are recognised at a special presentation held later in the year.
