RESOURCES AND TIPS

Taking on March the Month? We're here to help. Check our ideas, hints, tips and downloads to help you smash the challenge: 

  1. Get a plan in place early Organise when you’re going to get your steps in and think about your goal - do you plan to get up early for a morning walk, make plans over lunch or finish the day with a walk to boost your total? Over the weekends why not let your friends and family know they could join you for a walk and get involved. Please make sure you follow all government guidelines and stay safe.

  2. Set up your online fundraising page Make your page stand out. Once you've created your page make sure to add a picture and update your story to let everyone know why you’re taking on March the Month. 

  3. Spread the word Your friends and family will be so proud of you for taking on this challenge... as long as they know it's happening! Share your challenge plans on your social media pages, wear one of our branded tops to spread awareness and shout it from the rooftops - you’re doing something incredible! Local papers are always looking for a great story, so let them know what you’re up to. You can also contact Prostate Cancer UK for a template press release and ongoing support. Email marchthemonth@prostatecanceruk.org

  4. Get kitted out Order fundraising materials via our material order form to help raise awareness and boost your fundraising. You can also download a sponsorship form and other resources from our page online

  5. Ask the boss! Find out if your employer offers matched giving or would like to give a donation. Remember to add your donation page link to your email signature and see if you can publicise your story on your intranet to help generate sponsorship. 

  6. Thank your sponsors It’s up to you how you want to do this – some people send emails, some send cards. Whatever you feel is appropriate, make sure you take the time to thank the people that donated to your cause.

For anything not covered above, please call Prostate Cancer UK on 0800 082 1616 or contact us online.
