The Virgin London Marathon is just six days away and anyone taking part will be in the final stages of their taper – resting up and looking forward to the day. Now is the perfect time to update your Virgin Money Giving fundraising page – to let everyone know how your training has gone, how you are feeling about the day and if you’ve took part in any fundraising events to boost your target. If you need help. heres a guide to help you to update your fundraising page.
You should also use this week to give your page a final push. Last year we saw a huge increase in the number of people donating to their friends and family in the week leading up to marathon, so it is well worth sending everyone you know a little reminder that Sunday you and 35,000 others will be running 26.2miles around London for charity!
In your email, facebook update or tweet let people know how much you’ve raised and how close you are to your target. If you’ve already achieved it, let them know that every penny and pound extra can make a real difference.
The Marathon is a tough task and people who know that you have been training for it will want to know how you’re feeling as you enter the final week. Give them an update on how your training and fundraising has been going – and don’t forget to include the all important link to your fundraising page.
Good luck to everyone taking to the start line on Sunday.
