Make it personal

The more personal you make your fundraising page the better. Here's a few top tips to get you started. 

  • Set a fundraising target - did you know something as simple as setting a target on your page could lead to a 45% increase in the amount you raise?
  • Tell your story - let your supporters know why you're taking part and how their support will make a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. 
  • Add a profile picture - grab your camera and strike a pose! Having a profile picture on your page could help boost your sponsorship by a whole 23%.

Spread the word

Tell everyone what you’re doing! The more people you tell, the more you'll raise and the more lives you'll make a real difference to. 

  • Share your page - once your page is up and running, shout it from the rooftops! Share your page on Twitter and Facebook and email it to all your friends, family and colleagues. Remember to tell people why you're taking part.
  • Update your supporters - announce that you're taking part, tell them how you're prepping for the walk, share on-the-day updates, pictures from the post-march celebrations and don't forget to thank them for their support!
