1. Upload your photo to your fundraising page
If there is only one action you take from reading our tips, it should be to personalise your fundraising page with a photo of yourself. It's super simple, can be done in only a couple of minutes and can have huge impact on the performance of your donations. Here's how!
2. Explain your motivation
Whether you have been personally affected by neuroblastoma, or simply want to help raise awareness for those that are, sharing why you are taking part in Run2Cure can resonate and lead to more awareness and some welcome donations. Simply write a sentence or two on your fundraising page and you will by surprised by the difference in response. Learn how to update the copy on your personal page.
3. Share your page
Share your Go Fundraise page with your friends and family with the click of a button through Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or any other social channels you may use. (This also acts as great accountability for training too!) To find out how to share your page click here. Unsure of what to post? We've put together a graphic that you are welcome to use – just remember to add your fundraising page url to your post. Click here for instructions on how to find your fundraising page url.
*Top tip* – people donate more if a donation has already been made so help your fundraising get off to a great start by making a donation to your own page.
4. Email your family, colleagues and friends
Another great option is to share your fundraising via email where you can also highlight why you are supporting Run2Cure. Stuck for time? Or, unsure what to write? We've put some copy together for you, so all you need to do is copy, paste and add in your link. Download copy for my emails here.

5. Update your email signature
Include your fundraising page in your email signature. Do you send dozens of emails a day at work? Be sure to add your fundraising page to your email signature and showcase your great efforts to your colleagues and friends. We've put together a graphic you can include at the bottom of your signature. All you have to do is link this to your personal fundraise page. This is a quick, easy tool to help boost donations to your page - and you may even inspire a colleague to join you in the run!

6. Get your workplace involved
Chat with your HR manager and see if your company offers a dollar matching charity scheme or maybe they would be keen to organise a team to boost workforce well-being. This could be a fantastic incentive to boost donations from your networks with minimal input from you.
