If you use Strava, you can embed a progress widget on your page. There are fees involved, learn more here.
TO PUT STRAVA DATA ON YOUR PAGE:
Log into your account on Strava’s website. Then, navigate to your profile page.
Scroll down to the bottom of the profile page. In the bottom right hand corner, click the Share Your Runs button. There must be physical activity recorded on the profile before this button will appear.
A popup will appear that presents two styles of widget to display on your fundraising page. The first is the Activity Widget, which will display the user’s latest runs. The second is the Summary Widget which displays the user’s stats for the current week.
Copy the code below the widget you want to use, and then log in to your fundraising page.
Once logged in, click the Edit My Page button. This will open your fundraising page and allow you to edit the content that’s already on the page.
Open the Custom Content Widget 'My Progress'. Then click Source.
When Source Is selected, paste your embed code in the body of the Custom Content Widget.
Click Update to make the code work and embed the widget.
If you don't want to use Strava or decide later you don't want to display your activity, you can hide the widget by clicking the Hide button in the editing UI of their fundraising page.
Donate to your own fundraiser - set an example and make the first donation to your page. It's fair to expect most donors to match your initial donation, so if you're hoping for people to donate $50, lead by example.
Ask for BIG DONATIONS! Remember, you're raising money for an incredibly worthy cause, so don't just ask for $10, ask for their wallet. In the end, donors will give what they are comfortable with, but you might as well aim for the stars.
Post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as well as TikTok, Snapchat and any other social platforms. This is a passive way to get the word out about your personal or team fundraiser. You can share to the masses or get personal by sliding into someone's DM with a link.
Keep your head up and stay positive! Not everyone is going to donate - or even acknowledge your request. That's ok. Everyone has their own thing going but play the odds - the more people you can reach the more donations you will get. Simple math.
Don't feel bad about asking friends, family, co-workers for money. You are not asking for yourself, but on behalf of thousands of kids that need permenent families. Worst thing they can say is no and that is ok.
Always be polite and appreciative. Thank everyone for their donation and kindly request them to share your page with their community.
The most important tip - HAVE FUN! If you think it's a chore, it will be.
