10 Dares Challenge – FAQs

Why is the challenge called 10 Dares?

Because there are 10 weeks between when the challenge kicks off and the showcase event at Open State! A dare a week is great way to set yourself some achievable challenges.


Do I have to complete 10 dares?

Definitely not. You can choose to attempt one, five, ten or more dares, it’s entirely up to you. The idea is simply to challenge yourself to try something new or different.


Do I have to limit myself to 10 Dares?

No, you can do as many as you like!


Do I have to pick a dare off the list?

No. You are free to do any dare you can think of. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.


Do my dares have to be things I’ve never done before?

The idea of 10 Dares is to do something new or different. That might be something completely new to you. Or something you do already, but you could do more of it (eg more walking) or do it differently (eg go to a movie you would never usually choose). Or it might be something you used to do but haven’t done in a long time, such as going to a disco or swimming in the ocean! It’s completely up to you to decide how you’d like to challenge yourself.


I have a dare in mind but I have no one to go with me.

Let us know and we can put the call out to see if any other Exchange members want to go with you.


Does the Exchange pay for my dares? / Do I have to pay for my own dares?

All dares are self-funded but The Exchange are running some low cost classes and events which anyone is welcome to attend. Check the event calendar link for sessions – view EVENT CALENDAR here.


Do I have to have Facebook to share my dares?

If you don’t have Facebook you can email or phone the 10 Dares coordinator Fiona to let her know what you have been up to and send her photos. This way she can share them for you amongst the group.


How do I share my photos/stories?

If you can’t take a photo of yourself or find someone to take a photo and you are planning something really exciting, let us know. We may be able to send out someone to photograph you.


I need some support to do my dares.

ACH Group has a range of support services available that could be of use to you and provide support in many different areas. To find out more call 1300 22 44 77.


Can the Exchange provide me with transport to my dares?

No, but if you’re stuck let us know and we may be able to find someone else who would also like to participate who you could share a ride with.


How do I take part in the showcase event at Open State?

Contact Fiona and let her know what you’d like to share with the audience.
