Plan Your Challenge
Let’s roll! Start your challenge by following some of our tips below.
Set a goal:
Choose a specific quantifiable goal. Choose a distance that you will go and aim to raise a set amount of money per kilometre, or choose a day streak goal and raise funds for the number of consecutive days that you will wheel. Set a goal to roll 150 km, raising a dollar per kilometre or the equivalent of providing a family with a ShelterKit after a disaster!
Set a route:
Choose a route, you can use apps such as Footpath to map out the exact distance or time that you’ve decided to commit. This helps to ensure that you can reach your goal!
Set up a fundraising page:
Create your own fundraising page to share with your supporters. It’s yours to personalize with photos, messages and updates. This is also where all of your supporters can pledge towards your goal! Don’t forget to email your circle to let them know about your new page! Check out a sample template here.
Set up a team:
We are all stronger together. If you’re part of a group, get the whole group involved and work together to reach a goal. Not part of a group yet? Find yourself a partner who can help to keep you challenged! Go one step further, share your goal and challenge 5 of your friends using our social media challenge template here: Graphic or Animated. Don’t forget to tag us @ShelterBoxCanada!
Set your tracker:
Don’t forget to set an activity tracker! This way it is easy to keep track of every kilometre or minute that you wheel. It’s also a great motivator to post on your fundraising page! Your supporters will be able to follow along with every run you take showing your amazing dedication to families in need of shelter around the world.
