How do I share my fundraising page on Facebook?

add remove

Sharing your Challenge 21 fundraiser on Facebook is a great way to spread the word to more people! It’s easy too.

  1. When you log into your Facebook account, you should see a box that asks, “What’s on your mind?”
  2. Write a short message like “I’m taking on Challenge 21 to support sick kids” and simply copy your personal fundraising link into this area and post.

Do I have to fundraise?

Registration is FREE for Challenge 21 and we would love it if you gave fundraising your best shot by sharing your fundraising page with your friends, family and colleagues to support sick kids.  Click here for more information on the work of the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation.

Can I use Facebook to raise funds for Challenge 21?

add remove

Whilst Facebook is a great way to share the fundraising link we give you, we suggest you do not create a separate Facebook fundraiser if you are prompted directly while in Facebook. If you raise money using separate Facebook fundraiser, it is not linked to your personal fundraising page and  it will not update your fundraising total on your Challenge 21 page. We suggest you share your personalised Challenge 21 fundraising page on your social platforms to encourages friends, family and colleagues to support your fundraising.

How do I get a receipt for my donation?

If you have the fundraising page link of the person you would like to support, simply click on the ‘Donate’ button below their profile picture and follow the steps to make your donation.

Alternatively, if you do not have their fundraising page link, you can search for a fundraiser by name, using our ‘Find a friend’ search function located on the top right hand side of this page.

Fitness tracking

How do I track my walking/running?

add remove

Any GPS enabled devices like fitness wristbands or watches will do the trick. We have linked up with Strava and Fitbit to automatically sync with your fundraising page and add to your kilometres each time you record an activity.

If you’re not already connected with these devices, you can always use your phone and download Strava or Fitbit to get started.

Once installed and your account has been created with your preferred app, login to your Challenge 21 profile page and head to the 'My Fitness Activity' tab. Here you can now connect up to your preferred fitness app. Click on the icon of the app you'd like to connect - this will ask you to login and authorise us to access your fitness account.

Now, when you are using your fitness app, remember to create a new activity through your app and stop when you're finished each time - this will ensure your km's are recorded onto your Challenge 21 page.

You can also manually add an activity through the 'My Fitness Activity' tab.
