Fly into July Ltd is a registered charity authorised by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
How it works
Fly into July encourages active lifestyles via a step challenge. Fly into July is a registered charity that supports other charitable causes, predominantly in the health and disability sectors, to increase their funding and awareness.
The step challenge runs for the entirety of the month of July and is designed to encourage people of all abilities to increase their level of daily activity through logging ‘steps’ for each day of the month. People participate both as an individual and in a team. Participants are required to track their daily step totals and input them on their individual profile page.
Participants are not required to fundraise separately, as an optional donation amount is included in the total registration cost, however there is a further option to donate or fundraise additional amounts for your choice of Charity or Cause if you wish.
Participants can follow their individual and team stepping progress on the dashboard, keep track of the stepping leaders, and be eligible for prizes just by taking part. Importantly, we value participation over competition, with prizes being awarded predominantly as encouragement.
With no set target of steps per day, you can challenge yourself and your team to attempt to be more active regardless of your ability. Fly into July’s goals for participation are:
– Increase awareness of recommended health and wellness levels
– Promote healthy living
– Create social interaction through teaming up of participants
– Raise awareness and provide a donation amount to our Supported Charities
Distance conversion calculation
For those participants who usually record movement as distance we have provided a calculation for you to convert into ‘steps’.
This may include people who are participating in a wheelchair, or with a device that only records distance rather than steps.
For the purpose of calculating a step count for participants using a wheelchair, or those with a device that only records distance, the following calculation can be applied to work out a ‘step’ total per day:
Distance in kilometers (variable) x meters in a kilometer (1 000m) / average step length (0.762m)
(ie. 4.5km x 1 000 / 0.762 = 5 906 steps for the day)
Step count submission
Steps for the previous week, or part week should it be the case, are required to be submitted by no later than Sunday for each active week of the challenge. Any timing associated to these dates will be in line with the local time where Fly into July Ltd is registered (VIC, Australia), or as otherwise informed. Late registrations, or late submission of steps, may result in ineligibility for some or all prizes.
Fly into July may request proof of Participants steps, so keep record of this. Fly into July retains the right to audit any step count submissions and will require proof of validity from the individual Participants.

Any Participant found to be creating multiple accounts in order to submit multiple entries will be immediately disqualified from participating in the competition or/and prize eligibility.
Further, any Participant found to be submitting step counts that cannot be adequately audited will be immediately disqualified from participating in the competition or/and prize eligibility.
Any Participant who uses the ‘Family’ registration option for uses other than intended, that being registration and participation of a household of immediate family members, may be immediately disqualified from participating in the competition or/and prize eligibility. Such disqualification from participation and ineligibility for prizes would subsequently extend to all associated Participants on the Family registration.
Any Participant who uses foul, harmful or abusive language will be immediately disqualified from participating in the competition or/and prize eligibility. All references to foul, harmful or abusive language will be removed from any platforms controlled and managed by Fly into July Ltd, to the best ability of Fly into July Ltd.
Acceptance of our terms
The challenge commences on 1 July each year and closes 31 July each year. Any timing associated to these dates will be in line with the local time where Fly into July Ltd is registered (VIC, Australia), or as otherwise informed. Late registrations, or late submission of steps, may result in ineligibility for some or all prizes.
All title, ownership and intellectual property rights in and to the content and services and any and all copies thereof, are owned by Fly into July Ltd or/and its appointed contractors. All rights reserved. Fly into July Ltd or/and its appointed contractors may protect their rights in the event of any violation of these rights.
Prizes will vary based on the suppliers and assets that Fly into July can secure. We aim to award prizes broadly across the pool of Participants, including those Participants who are at the top of the leaderboards. However, we value participation over competition – that’s why the majority of prizes will predominantly be awarded as encouragement.
Who can enter
Both the challenge and prize pool is open to anyone. Participants aged under 18 will need approval from a parent or guardian prior to registering. Employees and Directors of Fly into July Ltd may participate in the challenge but are not eligible for prizes.
How to enter
Once registered, all Participants are automatically entered into the prize draw/s. Participants must provide true and correct information to Fly into July, including but not limited to details of steps completed and must promptly notify Fly into July of any inaccuracies in information they provide, or changes required to information they have provided. Fly into July reserves the right to audit all information provided by Participants and may, for the purposes of determining the eligibility of a Participant, refuse to accept or acknowledge information that Fly into July suspects is inaccurate, incomplete or otherwise misleading.
All payments are required to be made in the local currency to the Charity or Cause you choose to support.
Total registration cost
By default, we set the total registration cost to include the registration fee and an optional donation amount. This donation amount can be amended or removed by the Participant. Any Participant who removes the donation amount from their total registration cost acknowledges and accepts that no donation will be made as part of their registration.
We also offer an option to cover transaction fees at point of payment, this is not included in the total registration cost.
Supported Charities and Causes payments
Fly into July supports Charities and Causes based in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Supported Charities and Causes will receive a cash donation to be made in the local currency relevant to them.
By participating in the Fly into July challenge, Participants agree to enter steps as accurately and honestly as possible. Participants must provide true and correct information to Fly into July, including but not limited to details of steps completed and must promptly notify Fly into July of any inaccuracies in information they provide, or changes required to information they have provided. Fly into July reserves the right to audit all information provided by Participants and may, for the purposes of determining the eligibility of a Participant, refuse to accept or acknowledge information that Fly into July suspects is inaccurate, incomplete or otherwise misleading. Any Participant found to be submitting step counts that cannot be adequately audited will be immediately disqualified from participating in the competitions or/and prize eligibility.
Fly into July does not take any responsibility for the leaderboard rankings as they are automatically calculated based on the addition of steps and activity from each Participant’s profile.
In order to protect personal data, we ask Participants to submit a public user name (nickname) when registering for the challenge. This nickname will be displayed to all Participants of the challenge. Unless you input personal data into the nickname field by choice, your full personal details will never be displayed publicly on this website. Fly into July is not responsible for individual Participants display names, should they cause offence. You should report any Participant whose nickname you may feel is inappropriate.
Other than those prizes awarded for placements in the challenge, the odds of winning a random awarded prize are based on the actual number of participation registrations received. Neither Fly into July Ltd nor any of its Agencies are responsible for lost, late, damaged, misdirected, incomplete or ineligible registrations that may result in exclusion from prize draws. If a prize is not claimed by 15 August of each year, a redraw will be conducted.
Prize winners will be notified in writing (and if required by legislation by phone where possible), within two (2) days of the prize draw. The prize winners’ username will be published on Fly into July’s social media channels. Winners of redraws (if any) will be notified in writing (and if required by legislation by phone where possible), within two (2) days of the prize redraw. A list of prize winners, identified by nickname, may be obtained by contacting us.
