3) Share your fundraiser
Don't forget to keep sharing your Facebook Fundraiser on your social media, by email and other platforms asking for donations from your friends, family and colleagues to help us get closer to finding a cure for this devastating disease.
Here are some top tips:
- Share your fundraiser on all your social platforms, with your colleagues, friends and family.
- Invite people to your fundraiser using the invite button at the top of your fundraising page
- Donate to your own fundraiser to get off the mark (Facebook recommends this to get your Fundraiser off the ground)
- If you have a personal connection to brain tumours which you don't mind sharing, tell your story to help increase your total.
- Download a step tracker app or use a fitness watch to track your steps.
- Why not do some practise walks so you can see how many steps you currently are doing on an average day.
Meet one of the supporters stepping out for our new fundraiser:
Taking part is Laura McNulty, whose eight-year-old daughter Isla was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma a year ago. Isla underwent surgery followed by six weeks of radiotherapy and then 40 weeks of chemotherapy.
Laura said: “When we found out Isla has a brain tumour, it shook us to the core. I am taking on this challenge because more research into brain tumours is desperately needed. The more we fund research, the more treatment and support options there will be for other children like Isla and adults diagnosed with a brain tumour.”
