--Instructions for setting up your fundraising page--
This year we are using Givealittle to collect donations, everyone will be connected to our team page, which can be found here:
To set up your page, all you have to do is click on the Help Fundraise button on the right and follow the instructions to set up your page. Be sure to give your page a snappy title and a brief description that tells people about yourself and why you are doing Running Without Borders - be creative! Don't forget to include a picture of yourself for your profile. There are a few things to make sure you do in the signup process:
• Make sure under the 'Beneficiary Details' section you have selected 'An Existing Charity, School, Cause, or Event'. A green box saying 'Great! Your page has been linked to "Running Without Borders Canterbury 2019".' should appear.
• Under the 'Duration' section, make sure you set the date for your page to close on or after 2 June 2019 (which is the date of the marathon!).
Once your page is set up all there is to do is promote it! Make sure you send your page to as many friends and family as possible and get them to donate to the cause. On the RWB event page you can track how much money you and your fellow runners without borders have raised.
