Event Profile3 bridges, 2 courses, 1 fun day. Enjoy running and walking along Brisbane’s best fun run course at The Sunday Mail Bridge to Brisbane Day on Sunday, August 28. As Queensland’s largest fun run, Bridge to Brisbane Day attracts over 30,000 participants and is a fun day out for the whole family. Participants will also be able to gain access to exclusive deals at many South Bank businesses by showing their race-day bib.
Hero TimeRunners in the Bridge to Brisbane Day have a great reason to choose to fundraise. Each runner gets two times on completing the race – their race time and their Hero Time. Hero Time equals their race time minus one second for every $1 they raise for charity. So there’s no better reason to ask your supporters to run for you in the Bridge to Brisbane Day.
How to set up a Bridge to Brisbane Day supporter pageSetting up an online supporter page in the Bridge to Brisbane Day is easy – during registration, your supporters will choose to raise money for you by selecting your charity from a list of all the charities included in the event.
Step 1: Register as an event participant online at the Bridge to Brisbane Day official website.
Step 2: During the registration process, participants will be prompted to set up an online supporter page as part of their run.
Step 3: Once registration has been completed, you will automatically be taken to your new Everydayhero supporter page.
Step 4: Personalise your page with a profile photo and tell everyone why you’re supporting your chosen charity.
Step 5: Share your unique supporter page link with your friends, family and colleagues via email and social media.
Asking your supporters to compete for youIt’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
- Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
- Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
- Your volunteers
- Your charity’s staff
