Use these top tips to kickstart your fundraising!

Set your fundraising goal: create your story about your fundraising target and the difference it will make to medical research. Motivate yourself and inspire others!

Make your own donation: get started and lead by example. This also helps your supporters out as research shows the higher your first donation the more your supporters will donate!

Share the stories: follow Team Eureka and QIMR Berghofer on Facebook and Twitter to easily share your story and ours, to update your supporters on your quest and the amazing research underway.

Keep everyone updated: update your personal page with your fundraising and training progress. Connect your Everyday Hero page to Strava or Map My Run to automatically create regular updates for your supporters.

Spread the word: don’t be afraid to ask! People give to people. Your friends, family and colleagues want to support you, so make sure you ask them and give them the opportunity to.

Approach your local: ask your local businesses to get involved – is there a takeaway, hairdresser, sports centre you frequent who will get behind you?

Hold an event: not only will this help you reach your target quicker, it’s a great way to have fun with your supporters and raise awareness.

Say thank you: thank your supporters for getting behind your quest with a shout-out on social media and on your fundraising page – help them feel a part of your quest.

Repeat and remind: life gets busy, so follow up and remind your networks every few weeks about what you’re doing, and how they can help.
