Setting up an online supporter page in the Fun Run is easy.

Step 3: After completing the event registration form, follow the prompts to visit the Fun Run fundraising website.
Step 4: Sign up to create your personal Fun Run supporter page and select a non-featured charity to support.
Step 5: Personalise your page with a profile photo and tell everyone why you’re supporting your chosen charity.
Step 6: Share your unique supporter page link with your friends, family and colleagues via email and social media.

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:

  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff

To make it really easy to ask them to participate, download an email template.

Setting up a charity team

Setting up a fundraising team is a great way to build a sense of community for all your supporters in the event.
