Fundraising

Every runner is expected to raise 200€ minimum (100€ for minors and students under 25) through his/her RUN TO KICK fundraising page before the 26th of September, 2019 at midnight

No worries, this goes much easier than you think! Check out this tutorial film to inspire you on how to fundraise super effectively !

You can share your own page, your team's page or your tribes to solicit donations. If your supporter chooses to make a donation on your team's or tribe’s page, the donation will automatically be equally split between the team members who are registered at the moment of the donation.

If you have not raised 200€ (100€ for minors and students under 25) on September 26, 2019, you still have a little bit of time to find last minute donations. Yet, you will need to prove the additional gifts at the registration desk when you pick-up your starting number. Otherwise, unfortunately you will not be entitled to participate in the race. It is a harsh reality, but we can’t make exceptions without losing the heart and soul of our solidarity run concept.

In all cases, 100% of the funds you did raise will be used to fund research against children's cancer.

Thanks to our generous partners, 100% of the donations are used to finance research projects which aim at finding new treatments, improving existing ones and kicking children’s cancer to send it far, far away forever and may it never come back!
