Fundraise

The 19th Anniversary Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk 2024 is taking place in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 21st September. In 2024 the event will take on a whole new look, offering something for all ages and abilities. This event will launch the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk from Home series.

Between Tuesday 1st October and Saturday 30th November 2024 walk as many times as you like on your own or with your family and pets around the comfort of your own area or a location you enjoy. The charity is encouraging as many people and Dental Practices as possible to step out and make a difference during Mouth Cancer Action Month.

Fundraising 

The Mouth Cancer Walk is designed to increase awareness of mouth cancer, celebrate survivorship, create an opportunity to meet friends, remember lost dear ones, and also have a fun time!

The Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness walk in 2024 will be bigger and better than ever as more people will easily be able to take part. We are excited to see all the different 10KM routes and photos from all around the UK.

 

We hope participants will be able to gain sponsorship for their walk from family, friends and colleagues to raise funds for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.

 

There will be great prizes for the top fundraisers so start campaigning for sponsorship early. Anyone who raises over £50 in sponsorship will receive a free Mouth Cancer Foundation T Shirt. See the Prizes section for details of what the highest fundraisers will win.

We have partnered with Just Giving so that you can create your own online web page for free, which will allow you to collect sponsorship easily and efficiently. The money you raise is paid directly to the Mouth Cancer Foundation along with Gift Aid.

Fundraising Tips

Participation in the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk is about physical exercise, fun and fundraising. And, whilst there is no minimum sponsorship requirement to participate in the event, there also is no maximum. The Sky really is the limit!

 

At the very beginning we recommend that you set yourself a target of how much you are hoping to raise in sponsorship as this can help you to focus on your fundraising efforts. By following the steps below, you may even find yourself exceeding your fundraising target!

 

  • Think about who you could ask to help you in your fundraising activities and decide when best to set about enlisting their support.

 

  • Make a list of potential sponsors - include relatives, friends, neighbours, sports and social club members, school / college friends, colleagues, business contacts etc - and decide when to approach them.

 

  • Ask your company for support. Many companies will match the amount you raise - it can give them good publicity and it's a tax benefit too.

 

  • Keep accurate records for yourself and your chosen beneficiary. Record all money received on your sponsorship form, together with details of who made the donation and when.

 

  • And don't forget before you start fundraising to ask whether your chosen beneficiary is eligible to receive tax relief on sponsorship donations as this can really boost the amount raised.

 

  • By being original and planning ahead, fundraising can be really rewarding and enjoyable!
