Fundraising Tips

  1. Be the first! By donating to your own everydayhero fundraising page, you’re showing your commitment to your fundraising and setting the benchmark for the family and friends who come to your page to make a donation.
  2. Remember to upload a profile photo – people want to see who they’re donating to (and it helps create an emotional connection!).
  3. Update your fundraising page! Keep your family, friends and colleagues updated with your training and fundraising progress. How are you going? What obstacles have you come across? What are you really enjoying?
  4. Connect your page with your MapMyFitness smartphone app. Not only will it help you share your workouts with your family and friends, but your everydayhero Giving Footprint grows with every mile you run for charity, even in training!
  5. Tell your story. Let your family and friends know WHY you’re doing what you’re doing. They want to know your story, so go ahead and share your passion!
  6. If you hit your target, or you’re close to reaching it… increase it! If your network think you’re close to your target, they might not donate as much as they originally intended.
