These are the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about our 62 Miles in May challenge.

How do I register for 62 Miles in May?

You can register and set up your fundraising page via this link. You can now choose to either set up a Facebook fundraising page or JustGiving page!

When do I get my free t-shirt?

Once you have registered and activated your fundraiser please allow 10 working days for your t-shirt to arrive.

How much do I need to raise?

Any amount raised is incredible. We know this is a tough time for many of us right now. But every donation – no matter how large or small – makes a huge impact for families and their babies spending time on a neonatal unit. You can ensure that parents can access crucial information and emotional support when they need it most. If you raise over £150, you’ll receive your very own Bliss medal.

What is a Facebook fundraiser?

A fundraising page which you set-up and run within Facebook.

How do I share it with my Facebook friends?

As soon as you set it up, it will appear in your friends’ newsfeeds. Then you can post updates on the page and more of your Facebook friends will see it. The more you post, the more people will see it, and the closer you’ll get to your goal.

How do my friends donate?

There is a donate button on the Facebook fundraiser, which is simple and quick to use.

What is the best way to raise more money with Facebook fundraisers?

Make it personal and make it fun! Post regular updates on your Facebook fundraisers to make people feel involved in your challenge. Post videos. Post selfies. Tag friends. The more likes and comments, the more money you will raise so be as creative as you can be!

I don't have Facebook, how can I fundraise?

You can absolutely join in without using Facebook. If you can register for the event with our sign up form to get your t-shirt, sponsorship form and tracker sheet, and instead of following the instructions to set up a Facebook fundraiser you can use a JustGiving page.
