Step 3:

Start Fundraising! The best way to kick start your fundraising is to set-up a page through JustGiving. Click on the orange ‘Start fundraising’ button and you will be taken through a step by step guide to creating your page. You can then share this link with your family, friends and colleagues.

Don’t forget to update your fundraising page with how you’re getting on, so everyone can see how hard you are working to earn their support!

You may also like to make your fundraising more interactive for your sponsors, by asking them to donate when you reach a milestone in your challenge. For example, you can breakdown the mileage into sections and ask for sponsorship as every section is completed.

We hope that this has inspired you to take up your own challenge for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. If you have any questions before you get started, please do get in touch.

We’d also be delighted to offer you one of our charity’s t-shirts, running vests or cycling jerseys for you to wear during your challenge. Please just let us know the size that you require and your postal address.
