Fundraising Tips

Register and set up your online page

  • Scroll to the event you want to join (Sydney, Wollongong or Regional Walk) and select your ticket type (Adult or Child) and follow the online steps to create your login.
  • During the registration you’ll be asked to either join or start a team. If you are setting up the team go ahead here and submit your team name  e.g. ’Walking with Wayno’.

Online fundraising Tips

  • Upload a profile picture – Fundraisers who upload a profile photo raise over 10 times more on average than fundraisers who don’t.
  • Add your own story – People want to hear what’s motivating you to fundraise. Share your story so they can understand why supporting Parkinson’s NSW is so important to you.
  • Lead by example – Show your commitment and make the first donation to your own page. Fundraisers who donate to their own page raise 120% more on average.
  • Share, share and share again. Notice how it’s hard to find that post you were looking at yesterday? Post and tweet at different times of the day to make sure you keep your fundraising page front and centre for your friends. Top fundraisers share their page at least 10 times.
  • Thank your supporters. Tag them on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, and shoot them through a quick text or give them a call. They’ll appreciate it. We even have a thankyou certificate to you download from our resources page to send them.

On the day

Good luck and happy fundraising!
