  3. Personalise your fundraising page (with a photo and your story) and you will be on your way.
  4. Share your fundraising page link to your network of supporters via email, text and social media and ask everyone you know make a donation to support your efforts!

Getting started as a Team Member

  2. Accept a team invite or find your team on our website using 'Find a friend'. Once you have found them - click join the team.
  3. Personalise your fundraising page by adding a photo and your story and then make a donation to yourself. It shows you are behind the cause and encourages others donate to you.  
  4. Share your fundraising page URL on social media, via text or email and encourage your team mates to do the same.

Getting started as a Team Leader

Being a Team Leader is an important and rewarding role. 

  1. Log into your fundraising page and Click on ‘Create a Team’ and add your team name
  2. Decide how you want people to join your team (ticking yes will add a join button on your team page allowing anyone to join your team).
  3. Personalise your team fundraising page with a photo and story of why you are taking part.
  4. Invite your family, friends and workmates to join your team.

Once you are set-up, it’s time to pass on your passion and motivate your team mates to raise funds from their networks, so they not only smash their personal fundraising goal, but make sure you smash your team fundraising goal.

Get everyone up, out and running together. Set your team mates running challenges so they are trained up, fit and ready to run as many kilometres as they can to help reach your goals.

Above all, remember to have fun and cheer your team on – every dollar raised and every step you take will get us closer to a better, fairer world for people on the autism spectrum.
