Fundraising is fun and inspiring but it’s also hard work! To help keep your motivation alive here’s some suggestions:

  • Set yourself a target – there’s nothing more motivating than seeing yourself edge closer to an ambitious (but realistic) goal.
  • Celebrate milestones – if you hit a special monetary value, donor number or distance then enjoy the moment! You’re another step closer.
  • Share your progress – the responses you receive will spur you on.
  • Enjoy reading online donor best wishes – it’ll keep you on track and boost your confidence.
  • Going it alone? Create an extended support team and task them with keeping you motivated.
  • Group effort? Share success tips and progress, arrange regular catch-ups.
  • Check out the lives touched page on this site – hear from people whose lives have been saved.
  • Finally, put a special date in your diary now for after fundraising is complete. Treat yourself to whatever you love as a reward for all of your hard work.
