Hi,

I have entered the Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges walk and will be walking for a reason on Sunday 30 October 2016 to raise funds for the 1 in 2 Australians whom will be affected by cancer by the age 85. I am aiming to raise < insert fundraising goal > and I would love your help to achieve this goal and help defeat cancer.

Did you know? Last year an estimated 120,000 Australians were diagnosed with cancer. One in three of these cancers were preventable. With the funds I raise we can change this statistic and support change in behaviour.

Please take a moment to view my personal fundraising page and help me reach my goal by clicking 'DONATE'.

< insert your fundraising Page >

A tax deductible receipt will be sent straight to you when the transaction has been completed.

Thank you in advance for your kind support in making a difference.

Many thanks,

< insert name here >

Why fundraise online?

Top tips for fundraising online

  • Personalise your page - make it unique! Add photos, tell people why you're taking part and keep them updated on your progress.
  • Make sure your first donation is a big one - people will follow suit!
  • Send your page link to everyone you know. Ask close friends and family to sponsor you first - they're often most likely to be generous and then others may follow suit.
  • Get the message out there and post a link and regular updates about your fundraising and training on Facebook, Twitter and any other social media you're using.
  • Inspire people to sponsor you by telling them what a difference their support makes.
  • It isn't too late to ask people to sponsor you after the Seven Bridges Walk. Share your experience with them and remind them of your reasons for taking part.
