Frequently asked questions

Legacy’s Boss Bootcamp is a fun but challenging event for a boss to participate in. As this is the first time the event is being run we pre-empted a list of questions and/or information you may require, however if you can’t find the answer here, feel free to contact us.

general

WHO IS LEGACY AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Legacy is devoted to enhancing the lives of the families of our veterans who have served in war, peacekeeping, and humanitarian missions who have died or become incapacitated either during service or subsequently. Visit legacy.com.au.
WHAT IS BOSS BOOTCAMP?

Boss Bootcamp is Legacy’s biggest fundraising event that offers new ways to raise funds for Legacy, build awareness and a sense of social justice.

Boss Bootcamp will test the ability to work together by solving puzzles and other brain teasers to escape from a prison cell and/or will challenge the bosses/ teams with the physical military style obstacle course.

Boss Bootcamp will not only build awareness of what Legacy does but what our ADF do.

Boss Bootcamp will give you an opportunity to build affinity with our Australian Defence Force.

Whilst challenging, it is fun and gives an opportunity for networking and team building.

You can invite staff/co-workers to join your team by picking up the phone, sending an email invitation, using social media, or the old face to face ask. If they accept then the Boss (or person with the log-in) can go in the back end to add team members.

I AM A SPECTATOR DO I NEED TO PAY?

Spectators are welcome. As it is a charity entry will be a gold coin donation. Donations of $2 or more are eligible for a tax deductible receipt.

PHYSICAL FITNESS

I’M NOT INTO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO TAKE PART?

Of course! We have a brains section, escape from the prison cell, which may better suit you or you can SPONSOR one of our other participants, or DONATE directly to Legacy.

WHAT FITNESS LEVEL IS REQUIRED?

The course has been developed for various levels of fitness. You set yourself the challenge to your fitness level e.g. you can set yourself a time goal or set yourself a goal to attempt as many obstacles your body can handle, you can opt out at any time. People with disabilities, with staff assistance, have managed to safely complete the course. You choose which obstacles you tackle, some or all.

Buy Merchandise

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?

Orders will be despatched from Legacy House 102 Franklin St, Adelaide. If items are in stock, they can be collected or posted within 48hrs of receipt of order. If items aren’t in stock please allow three (3) weeks from time of order. Postage is included in the price of the merchandise.

CAN I GET A REFUND IF IT DOESN’T FIT?

You can exchange the tee-shirts for size but unfortunately there is no refund on merchandise for change of mind. You may get a refund if the garment is faulty.

*Please note to make an exchange you will need to pay for return postage or come in to Legacy.

IF I BUY A T-SHIRT CAN THE MONEY RAISED BE ADDED TO MY FUNDRAISING TOTAL?

Merchandise purchases will help to promote Boss Bootcamp. Unfortunately purchases cannot be added to your fundraising total, as money raised is purely a ‘donation’ to which you receive a specific receipt to enable you to claim the donation on your tax.

MANAGE OFFLINE DONATIONS

WHEN DO WE NEED TO BANK THE FUNDS RAISED?

Please try to bank the funds raised as you receive them. The sooner the money is received, the sooner the donor will see it on your Fundraising page.

Your Fundraising page will be left open for an extra month after the event. Please ensure all funds raised are banked by Friday 2nd November 2018.
If you require extra time please contact Boss Bootcamp Team

WILL YOU SEND TAX RECEIPTS TO MY SPONSORS WHO DONATE OFFLINE?

Yes, we will send tax receipts for all donations over $2. However we will need to receive a confirmation of money banked and donor details.

WILL I NEED A BUDGET?

A budget is a good idea, working out the costs and setting a goal of how much you would like to raise is important. Should you wish to email us a copy of the budget for perusal, we would be happy to give you feedback.

Who is liable for the cost of running an event?

Please deduct any incurred costs from the money raised and bank the remainder. The money raised after costs taken out is what we count as part of your fundraising goal.
