How do I register for the 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge?


To register, simply visit the 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge website and click 'sign up'.

  1. Fill in your first name, last name, email (which you’ll use to log in) and set your password.

Handy Hint: if you already have an everydayhero account from last year or another event under that email address, you will need to log in rather than sign up. Use this link –  – and your original password. If you can't remember your password, simply use the password reset button.



  1. Enter your date of birth, postcode, fundraising goal and mobile


    3. Tell us if you are part of a school, church or team, or participating as an individual.



> If you are part of a school or a teacher:

Select ‘I’m representing my school’ or ‘I am a teacher’, then enter your state and type in your school name.

Handy Hint: Your school name will be spelled as per its proper registered name - no nicknames will be included in the list. 


> If you are part of a church:

Select ‘I’m representing my church’, then enter your state and type in your church’s name.


> If you are the team leader and you want to create a team:

In the ‘Join or create a team (optional)’ field, select ‘I want to create a team’.



Handy Hint: Your team name must be unique, so if it's not available, try altering the spelling.

> If you are not the team leader and want to join an existing team:

In the ‘Join or create a team (optional) field, select ‘I want to join a team’. Then search for your team name.

Handy Hint: If you can't find your team name, check the spelling or contact your team leader for help.
