How to get more support/ raise more money

My sister just messaged me this!

I'm going to challenge myself by running a marathon a month from Nov this yr to oct next yr and try to raise as much money for action on PPP as possible xx

How can I get more support?

hi Betty2014

this sounds really great! It's always good to challenge ourselves and I know APP will appreciate the thought of fundraising for them as a charity. You can set up a page on JustGiving or another online facility and APP is a charity you can select. I did a 5k recently for them (not as far as your marathon, that's amazing, even split over time!) I don't know if you are on Facebook but sharing on there or other social media can be good. If you contact APP they can also link to it.

I also found that the good old fashioned paper sponsorship form works well! Good luck! Xx

Hi Betty

That's really amazing you want to do a marathon and raise money for APP, thanks so much!

I just wanted to reiterate what spannerb said, that APP can really support you with it by giving you advice how to set it up, T-Shirt/s etc... if you email our main email address we can forward it onto our trustee who deals with fundraising who can support you with everything. The main APP email is app@app-network.org

Lot's of luck with the training and marathon!!

Thank you for ur reply, it's my sister who is running the marathons, I'm not sure if I will be taking part. Does that make a difference?

I'll give them an email x

No of course not, just tell your sister to write to us too. That is so great she's running for us. X

Marathon!! eek! I'm doing a 5k and think that's far enough! Good luck! I've tried contacting local rotary clubs, free masons and local businesses for support but no such look so.
