Fundraising Made Easy




Once you’ve registered with the Mini Marathon organisers, along with us, it’s time to start fundraising! In your Mini Marathon pack, we’ll send you out a physical sponsorship card. This is a great way to fundraise at work, at home, and with friends and family. We recommend keeping the card in your bag so you have it close at hand!


Everyday Hero

Welcome to virtual fundraising! Everyday Hero has become the favourite (and most successful!) fundraising tool for Mini Marathoners. Easy to set up, easy to share on social media, and linked directly with our charity, participants have found it is the best way to raise funds!


Setting up an page for yourself. This online donation page is very user friendly and is easy to share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or via email or Whatsapp. And you can add videos and photos to let your supporters know how training is coming along. People respond strongly to a personal connection so if you know a little person who attends services in the centre, it’s always very effective to talk about the difference we have made to their (or your) lives.

Everyday Hero Page Instructions


We recommend sharing your Everyday Hero page regularly leading up to the Mini Marathon, and the sooner you set it up the better! Give your family and friends ample time to support your amazing effort!




Other ways to fundraise:  


  • Host your own event- why not have a small fundraising event to encourage friends and family to join you in your 10km challenge? Anything from a coffee morning, to a bake sale or pub quiz are great at getting people involved! Contact Madeline to get in touch about fundraising events and to learn more about how we can support you: or 01-661-8000.


  • Match funding! Did you know many companies do matched funding for charity fundraising? Check with your HR or accounting department to see what your company do to double your impact!

Let’s make this our most successful year yet by raising €50,000 for

The Down Syndrome Centre!
