The Royal Parks Half Marathon, Sunday 9 October 2011

If your Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon fundraising is in need of a little encouragement, perhaps this competition will help.

We’re giving all fundraisers using Virgin Money Giving for this years event the opportunity to boost the total their chosen charity receives. All you need to do is raise at least £500 in donations through your fundraising page by the 23 October 2011.

We’ll then draw one fundraiser who’s reached or exceeded the target and donate an extra £500 to their charity through their page.

To help you get going why not check out our Fundraising tips in the ‘Raise More section’ of our website, or if you’ve got a great fundraising tip why not share it in our forum. If you haven’t created your page yet it’s not too late, you can start fundraising right now.
