You can still take part if you aren’t on Facebook by registering with this link and then setting up an online giving page. If you are on Facebook, we would prefer you to fundraise through that platform, as we will be able to provide you with more support and it helps us keep an accurate track of our team fundraising total.
As the challenge is being run through Facebook we would prefer all participants to fundraise through the Facebook fundraising pages provided as it helps us to easily monitor and to minimise costs. However, if you have a strong desire to create a JustGiving please register using this link here. Then set up your JustGiving page using this link here.
For this challenge we haven’t set a sponsorship target. We just ask that you set up a fundraising page and do your very best! Your fundraising will go to St Oswald’s Hospice and help us to continue to provide our services.
If someone would like to donate to your challenge and they don’t have Facebook the best thing is to collect their donation offline and then donate it directly to your fundraiser yourself.
Yes! We are happy for you to make the challenge personal to yourself, so if it makes sense for you to include those steps, we are happy for you to do so.
It’s completely up to you! There’s lots of apps and trackers available, or you could go for good old fashioned pen and paper. We send out a paper tracker when you register and have a Strava group for you to join too, why not ask the Facebook group for more ideas?
Of course! This challenge is for everyone, and every kilometre you complete will make a difference, the important thing is getting out and raising vital funds for St Oswald’s Hospice.
