Personalise your JustGiving page
Tell people about your Resolution Run and why you have chosen to support the Stroke Association. Include photos and update the page regularly with your training progress.
Set a target
Having a target gives you something to aim for and will encourage friends and family to keep donating and help you get you to your goal.
Make your first social media post count
This is your opportunity to tell everyone about your event, so make sure you emphasise why it will be personally challenging.
Send personal messages and emails
Some people are often worried about directly asking for donations, but a personal, well though out message has a larger impact than a generic post on Facebook.
Once is not enough
Once you've announced that you are taking on a Resolution Run, make sure you share your page regularly. Sharing photos of your training progress is a lovely way to show your supporters how hard you're working and urge them to donate.
Make sure your first sponsor pledges a large amount - others will tend to follow suit!
Add in your offline donations
Make sure you add in any offline fundraising into the offline section of your page so that your supporters can see how much you have raised in total against your target.
