5. Click on ‘Cork Simon’.


6. Start filling in step one of your form – enter your name, your target amount and the end date for the fundraiser.
Remember: The Mockya Marathon will take place on Sunday 20 September 2020, so you may like to add a few days after this date to collect monies raised. Click ‘Next’.


7. Enter a title for your fundraiser and some text on why you’re raising money.
Please add ‘Mockya Marathon’ to your title so that we can see your stunning fundraising page.
The description will ‘default’ to our page one, which you are welcome to use if you wish.
Click ‘Next’.


8. Pick a cover image for your fundraiser.
The graphic we’re using will be the ‘default’ option and you are welcome to use this for your fundraiser, or upload your own image. Click ‘Create’. Your fundraiser has now been created and posted to your profile.
