Fundraising for FareShare

We know that fundraising can be a challenge too, but we are here with you every step of the way.

The easiest way to start fundraising is by setting up a JustGiving page. You can share the page with family and friends via social media and our fundraising team will be able to support you to set up an engaging page to capture people’s imagination and show the difference their donation will make.

How do I get my running top?

Once you have registered for a place in the event a member of the team will contact you to confirm whether you want a t-shirt or vest, your size and where to send this to.

I don't know where to get started with training?

Don’t worry! A member of the team will be in touch to find out how you are getting on with your training and can provide guidance on training plans to make sure you have the best experience on event day.

How do I set up a JustGiving page?

1. Go to justgiving.com
2. Go to ‘start fundraising’ and link your fundraising page to FareShare
3. Set a fundraising target
4. Write a short paragraph about why you have chosen to run the Cardiff half marathon and another about why you’ve chosen to fundraise for FareShare
5. Share on social media with friends and family

How do I pay in my fundraising?

If you have set up a JustGiving page, all the money raised on there will be paid to us directly, so you don’t need to do a thing. If you would like to pay in your fundraising another way, please email fundraiser@fareshare.org.uk and we will provide other ways you can pay in.
