Go to your Facebook Fundraiser. Click on the ‘More’ Option, select ‘edit fundraiser’, change the amount and/or the end date and save the changes.
If you don’t extend the date the default setting by Facebook is 7 days so your fundraiser will end after this time.

10,000 steps a day is about 5 miles. You probably have a very busy life and are thinking, how on earth can you fit that amount of steps in? The thing is, you already do a few thousand steps a day anyway simply by getting up in the morning and getting on with your day. To boost your step count, consider some of the following:
Use a Fitbit or a steps app, there are millions of apps you can download. If you like you can post screen grabs from your devices in the Facebook group along with photos/videos of you completing your steps.
Of course! It doesn’t matter at what time of the month you start. September is always crazy with the kids going back to school and everything ramping up again, not to mention the unprecedented times we are living through. Everything and anything you do will support people who are homeless and in very at-risk groups.
The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. Do as much as you can. Every step will help people who are homeless and vulnerable.
Facebook Fundraisers are the easiest way to raise money. You can set one up in a few seconds here. It’s really easy to share the page with your Facebook friends. You could reach your target in a few days.
Once you have set up a Facebook Fundraiser, please edit the name of your fundraiser to something like “Your Name’s” 10,000 Steps a Day Challenge for Depaul as it will help us recognise your page as being part of the challenge.
Directly to Depaul to support people who are homeless during this unprecedented time. You don’t have to worry about this. It happens automatically.
