Personalise your profile

Upload a profile picture to your page so your friends can find you! Snap a selfie, share your story and tell your friends why you’re walking for mental health.

Sponsor yourself

Back yourself by making a donation to yourself. You’ll set the bar for how much other people donate, so be generous! Don’t forget every donation gets you closer to unlocking some awesome rewards.

Ask your friends

Don’t be afraid to ask for support. Create an email template that you can use to ask your friends for support, and forward it to your contacts. Easy peasy! Don’t forget to thank your donors after.

Spread the word

You’re doing something incredible, so shout it from the rooftops! People who share their challenge on Facebook raise twice as much, so what are you waiting for? You can share your page to Facebook directly from your dashboard fundraising page, or use our social resources here to tell everyone you’re walking for mental health.
