How to Stay on Track!

Your personal fundraising page

Maximize your efforts with your own personal fundraising web page! It's never been easier to raise money online. Once you register for the Cancer Research Southend Relay For Life, you'll have access to fundraising tools to help you get the word out about your efforts. Your confirmation e-mail will include a link to your participant centre and instructions on how to customise your personal fundraising page.


Include a personal photo

Be sure to include your photograph and personal message on your page. You can then send custom e-mails to your friends and family and invite them to support you in the event and donate to the cause. When they visit the site, they can use our secure online system to pledge you with their credit card. They will then receive an official electronic receipt by e-mail. 


Tell your story

The most compelling fundraising pages offer personal stories. You may want to include some information on why you have chosen to get involved with the Cancer Research UK Southend Relay for Life, or you might provide a history of how much money you have raised to date. The choice is yours! The best advice is to personalise your page with a photo and give your friends and family compelling reasons to support your efforts. You'll be glad you did. In fact, on average, online Relay for Life participants who use their personal fundraising page and e-mail tools raise twice as much as offline participants, and take less time to do it.


Collect offline pledges too

If you would like to gather pledges in person, your event coordinator can provide you with the tools to do so. Receipts will be mailed to donors who make a donation in person.


More suggestions on how to increase your donations

We encourage you to raise a minimum of £100. However, the average amount raised by single participants at some Relay events across the country is over £400, so we challenge all of our participants to meet or beat that average! Did you know the reason that most people don’t make a donation is because they aren't asked? Try one of the following approaches and see what happens!
