Tips for fundraising

Many BMW Williams Rochdale Half Marathon, 10K and Fun Run participants run for a good cause. Running for charity can give you that extra motivation for your training and also on the day itself. You'll also notice the extra encouragement you'll receive from spectators.

As your training begins and you start your charity fundraising, here are some tips to help you raise lots of money:

  • Set up an online fundraising page early. Setting up a page as soon as you register will help you raise hundreds of pounds more than someone who leaves it all to the last few weeks.
  • Set a fundraising target.
  • Be social media savvy - using social media channels are a great opportunity to maximise fundraising potential.
  • Download a fundraising app to your mobile phone. This will make it much easier to collect donations wherever you are.
