WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?
We are challenging ourselves to complete a 10km challenge this spring (1st April 2022-31st May 2022) and we are inviting you do it with us. Either outdoors or indoors, pick an activity you love or maybe something you haven’t tried before and raise money for CRADLE.
The challenge can be taken individually, with friends, family, as a running club or if you work for the NHS why not nominate your hospital to take part. You can choose to complete your challenge in one go or break it down into manageable distances, whatever works best for you!
WHAT ARE WE FUNDRAISING FOR?
The funds you raise will allow us to keep supporting anyone who has experienced early pregnancy loss, whether this be through our comfort bag project, peer support, our online community, weekly support groups and our work with the NHS.
Any funds raised can be donated here through our Facebook page, you can create your own Facebook page or via your JustGiving Page before 31st May 22.
REGISTER YOUR CHALLENGE
Once you have decided what you would like to do for your challenge, set up your fundraiser on Facebook or JustGiving. Once you have selected CRADLE as your chosen charity, your fundraising page will automatically link to us. If you would prefer to fundraise offline, simply email email@example.com for a sponsorship form.
To register your CRADLE challenge with us, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your challenge, and where we can follow you on social media.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We are a small but mighty charity and as much as we would love to be able to supply branded CRADLE t-shirts, at this time we are unable to. We would love to see lots of photos of people wearing yellow which is CRADLE’s official colour. Remember to use the hashtag #CradleCharityChallenge in your social media posts.
CRADLE STRAVA CLUB
If you like you can track your progress and add a fun element of leader boards to our Spring Challenge by linking your 10km to our Strava Club! Strava is free to set up and takes no time at all! Just follow the link below and then you can start sharing your progress, remember to use the hashtag #CradleCharityChallenge
WHAT DO I RECEIVE FOR COMPLETING THE CHALLENGE?
Not only will you feel brilliant about completing the challenge, whilst raising money for a fantastic cause, we will also be sending you a digital certificate as a Thank You for all your hard work and dedication. One day we would love to be able to create medals and pins but at this moment in time we want to ensure that the majority of funds raised go towards supporting people who have been affected by Early pregnancy loss.
WHAT IS IN MY DIGITAL FUNDRAISING PACK?
Once you email us to let us know you are taking part in the challenge, you will be sent your digital fundraising pack. It will contain a cover photo for your fundraising page. It will also contain some graphics to use on your social media or instant messaging platforms throughout the challenge.
HOW DO I PROMOTE MY CHALLENGE?
The most effective way to promote your challenge is to tell everyone you know that you are doing it through your existing channels and networks . You don’t need to set up anything new. We will send you some graphics to use in the digital fundraising packs but you can also make your own posts using photos of your training and progress or telling the story of why the Challenge and CRADLE mean so much to you. We will be doing regular posts as well, with stories about the difference your fundraising and CRADLE makes to people and families affected. Please feel free to share these posts on your own page and to your groups as much as you can.
