Running season is very much upon us and pounding the pavements is the ultimate way to keep those fitness levels up. Even though most of the foreseeable running events are postponed or cancelled, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still keep active and run in aid of a good cause. Maybe running isn’t usually your forté, but you’ve decided that now is the time to get those running shoes on. Whether you do 5k, 10k, or even a half marathon, get in the garden with your running shoes on for the UK Sepsis Trust.
Choose the distance and set a time frame to complete your challenge. If you don’t want to run or jog, you could always do a sponsored walk instead!
We’ve included a link here which will take you straight to JustGiving where you can create your page. We’ve also got a brilliant Online Fundraising Guide below, which offers some great advice to make the most from your page.
Whether it be through text, email or social media, spread the word and tell your friends, family or colleagues all about your event and why fundraising for UKST is important to you. Don’t forget to share the link to your giving page and ask your supporters to donate and sponsor you. We’ve included a downloadable social media poster below to help get the word out to your friends and followers.
All that’s left to do is run! We’ve provided a downloadable distance tracker, so you can keep note of the distance you’ve covered each day. Or, if you’re a user of Strava, you can now link this directly to your JustGiving page; find out how here. Make sure you keep your supporters updated on your progress via social media and on your giving page.
