My Challenge, My Way

Get sponsored to run, jog or walk a distance that you decide, and help us to continue to prevent gynaecological cancers and save lives.

This is a great way to get involved and take on a challenge that has zero time constraints and suits all abilities. Rather than having to fit around the schedule of a pre-planned event, you set the distance and the time that works best for you.

Getting involved is simple, just follow these quick and easy steps to get you on your way:

1. Decide on your personal challenge and how long you are going to do it for

Giving yourself a month-long challenge, you could aim to do a marathon or why not take 7,824 steps each day – one for each of the women who die every year from a gynaecological cancer. The options really are limitless and if you’d like some more suggestions that will work for you, just get in touch. All the money you raise will help us fund research and raise awareness for the prevention of gynaecological cancers.

2. Join #TeamEve on Strava to keep count of your challenge

Use Strava to keep track of how many miles / steps you are doing. We’ve set up two Eve clubs which you can join to keep up with other members of Team Eve, share progress and motivate each other:

–          Running, walking or jogging join here

–          Cycling join here

3. Create a fundraising page using JustGiving 

Personalise it (pages with a photo and story are more likely to get sponsorship) and then share it with friends, family, and colleagues to start fundraising.

4. Promote your page on WhatsApp and social media

If you tag @eveappeal on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram we’ll try and share / like your post.

5. Update your fundraising page with photos and comments to let your sponsors know how you are doing as well as once you’ve completed the challenge

It is key when doing a virtual challenge to keep friends and family engaged – it will also give you more motivation. We recommend sharing screenshots from your fitness tracker and posting it on your fundraising page so all your sponsors know that you’re doing / have completed this amazing challenge. Do send photos to us as well, we’d love to hear all about how you are doing.

6. Once you’ve completed your challenge, let everyone know and say thank you!

You’ve completed an amazing challenge and should be proud of yourself. Your support will help us to protect more women and their families from gynaecological cancers.
