What is Strava and how do I use it?
Strava is a training app which tracks and records your distance. JustGiving is partnered with Strava which means you can link your fundraising page to Strava and your page will be updated every time you complete a run. That way, your donors can see how you’re getting on. Fundraisers who use this feature raise an average 46% more!
What happens if I only use the fitness app to track some of my activities and forget to use it for some?
If it’s linked to your fundraising page, we’ll know about any of the miles you complete using your fitness app. You just need to let us know about the rest of them by manually updating your fundraising page. Just remember: don’t manually log any miles that you’ve used a fitness app to track, as we’ll already have those logged.
What if I don't want to use a tracking app? How can I track the miles I've completed?
If you don’t want to use a fitness app, you can still easily keep track of your miles through your fundraising page. You can do this by manually updating your JustGiving fundraising page. Find out how to update your fundraising page .
Can I meet other people taking part?
Yes! Once you've signed up please join our Facebook group to chat with other people taking part in our running events.
How do I fundraise?
As soon as you sign up to your challenge your fundraising page will be created for you. It’s simple! All income is transferred directly to us. You’ll be able to share your progress on Facebook and Twitter too. And we’ll also provide fundraising tips and support throughout your journey. If you do not want to ask people to donate, you can always donate £1.00 for every mile that you run!
What is Gift Aid?
We love Gift Aid as it means we can claim 25p on every £1 donation, at no extra cost to you or your supporters. For UK taxpayers JustGiving allows your supporters to automatically Gift Aid their donation.
How do I pay in my money?
Ask people to donate directly to your fundraising page. That way, the money will come to us automatically. If you’ve collected cash then you can pay in the money to your fundraising page using a credit or debit card.
Is there a deadline for paying in donations?
You should pay in your donations by 14th April 2021.
