Tot up your miles using your fundraising page which you can set up here and collectively we’ll see how far we can get.

everydayhero is a safe and secure fundraising platform which will help you collect donations and sponsorship. Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to log in and access your page – totting up your miles and seeing where you stack up on the leaderboards! You can manually add the miles you’ve covered or link up your fitness apps to clock them as you go.

everydayhero have a dedicated support team to help you with any queries about setting up your page, how to make a donation or using your page. Simply drop them an email at help@everydayhero.co.uk or give them a call on 08456809720.

If you connect one of your compatible fitness apps to your everydayhero account, you’ll automatically be able to share your training or rambling activity and your miles will get totted up. Sharing your route is a great way to drum up support and demonstrate all the effort that is going into your fundraising, but you can also turn this off at any time by logging into your fitness app and switching this functionality off. We’d recommend turning this off if fundraising with your children, and it is advisable to vary your route and time you take part if you plan on sharing your route. Avoid telling people when you are going out and always post your route after you’ve completed it.

Take it up to a jog if you’d prefer! Take this at your own pace – ramble, walk, jog the distance you want as every mile helps - whether you take on one mile or a hundred, they’ll all tot up to the total. If you fancy a cycle instead, why not try out the Rickshaw Challenge instead?

Gift Aid is a scheme enabling registered charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, effectively increasing the amount of the donation. This means that, if your supporters pay UK tax and agree to BBC Children in Need claiming Gift Aid on their donation, the government will give us 25p on top of every £1 you give to us and it doesn’t cost your supporters a penny! An easy way to boost your total. You can find out more about Gift Aid here.
