Post your effort to your fundraising page and you’ll raise 46% more


Sometimes when you’re fundraising it’s hard to know just what to put on your page. After all, what do the people checking out your fundraising really want to see? And will what’s on your page actually affect how much they give?

In a recent everydayhero study of more than 1,000 fundraisers in the world’s largest timed run, we found that fundraisers who connected their MapMyFitness account to their everydayhero account raise more.

And it’s not just a little bit more…


The fundraisers who are the most successful (especially in fitness related events) are the ones that SHOW the effort they are putting in to their activity and take their family and friends along on their journey.

Using MapMyFitness to give your perspiration purpose

If you are sweating it out running, walking or riding for the cause close to your heart, then it’s so important that you connect your MapMyFitness to your everydayhero accounts.

Once connected, all your public MapMyFitness workouts will be posted automatically to your fundraising page as you log them.

The next step is to then regularly show all of your efforts by sharing the link to your page on Facebook and encouraging your friends to check back and see all your hard work!

The struggle is part of the story

With fundraising – as with life – the struggle is part of the story. Your struggle is what motivates your donors to give to your page… so don’t miss the opportunity to share it with them.

They want to see your dedication to your fundraising and the cause you love.

They want to know that you really care about what you’re doing.

They want to see all those miles covered, time spent training and calories burnt.

Because for them, seeing the effort you’re putting in lets them know that you are serious about making a difference and you’re willing to give what it takes.

And that makes them willing too.

Want to start sweating it out for your favorite cause? Check out the different ways you can give to the charity you love using everydayhero.
