Weekender 2018 Fundraising

The Club decided to raise awareness and funds for the children’s mental health charity Miricyl as part of this year’s weekender to Aviemore.  Miricyl are running a Cycle for a Miracle Challenge from May 20th to September 16th where you try and cycle the length, breadth or both of Britain. The plan is we will join this challenge, raise money and awareness for them.

In order to take part, you need to setup a Fundraising page and then link that to the Dundee Wheelers Team page. You can then link your page to your Strava account if you want to auto upload ride info to the Challenge.

First off, access the page https://www.everydayhero.co.uk/event/Cycle-for-a-Miracle and then select the option on the right hand side to Start Fundraising.

Create your Fundraising Page which you can then share with friends and family via the usual social media links. To set your distance goal click the "Edit this Supporter Page" button underneath your photo once you have created your fundraiser page and enter a Fitness Goal distance:

  • Length Land's End to John o' Groats (1,407km)
  • Breadth Lowestoft to St Davids Head (603km) or the 
  • Length and breadth of Britain (2,010km) 

From your new fundraiser page you can then select to join an Existing Team – enter Dundee Wheelers and join the Team. This will record all the donations and mileage centrally for everyone who joins Team Wheelers.

If you wish to link your fundraiser page to your Strava account to automatically log the Kms then click on your name in the top right hand corner and select Account. Then in the top right select Manage Connections and from there you can link to Strava (and other social media and fitness apps too).

Any problems then you can do an online chat or email the Everydayhero organisation who provide the fundraising platform and have been very helpful and quick to respond to my questions so far.

For more details on Miricyl then please go to their main website - http://www.miricyl.org/

I set Team Wheelers an overall target of raising £1,500 for Miricyl and cycling 10 x the length and breadth of Britain – so come on, lets rise to the challenge, support an excellent cause and have fun in the process.
