A quick guide to completing a charity challenge:

What kind challenge will you be completing, and for who? – you probably already know which charity you want to support, so next you must decide what kind of challenge you want to undertake. Once this is decided, you’ll need to get the event set up well in advance.

Booking/arranging your challenge – you can’t expect too much in the way of support for your challenge until you’ve got it booked or arranged and have a date set. To make things easy, we have put together a series of short articles on how to set up a selection of popular charity challenge activities. Just click the links below to find out more about getting started with the following.


  • Marathon
  • Mountain climb
  • Skydiving
  • Running
  • Triathlon
  • Mudrunner

Gathering support – once your challenge is set up, it’s time to start looking for support and donations.

One great way to generate support and raise money for your challenge is by hosting some fundraising events in the lead up to your challenge. Take a look at our page on Fundraising Ideas for some inspiration.

Using GoRaise to collect funds for your marathon is a great way to supplement the money you raise from conventional sponsorship form donations.

You can register as a Challenger on GoRaise today, and your supporters will be able to generate funds for your marathon each time they shop online.
