Fundraising FAQs:

1. Help - I’ve accidentally set up my JustGiving page for Cancer Research UK!

If you’ve accidentally set up a JustGiving page for Cancer Research UK rather than Have a Heart, don’t worry this problem can be very easily solved. We need you to set the page up for Have a Heart so that your sponsorship is included in our team total. We will then send these funds over to Cancer Research UK to help with their amazing work.

  • Click “Join the team” and select “Make a new fundraising page”
  • Choose “Have a Heart” as your charity
  • Select the option to “Take part in an organised event” and choose your event

2. I want to cancel my Cancer Research UK page

If you’ve accidentally set up a JustGiving page for Cancer Research UK, you need to cancel this page and set up a new one for Have a Heart. We need you to do this to stop people from continuing to donate to your Cancer Research page. Select the “cancel your page” option from the page settings bar which is found on the right hand side of your window.

3. Where does the money I’ve already raised for Cancer Research UK go?

We may be able to transfer funds that you’ve already raised for Cancer Research UK to the Team Heart total. Don’t worry, there’s nothing more that you need to do to sort this. 

All we need you to do is to set up a new JustGiving page for Have a Heart and raise your £75 pledge.

 4. Why am I raising money for HAH rather than Cancer Research UK?

This year Have a Heart is working with Cancer Research UK to enter special Team Heart groups in to the Race for Life. Running with our female Heart presenters and other members of Team Heart you’ll be raising money for Have a Heart. We add all of your fundraising to the Team Heart total and then send all of your hard earned sponsorship to Cancer Research UK to support their inspirational work.

7. How do I pay in sponsorship

Please make cheques payable to “Have a Heart” and send them to Have a Heart, 30 Leicester Square, London, WC2H 7LA. Make sure you write your name and Race for Life on the back of the cheque so that we can add it to your fundraising total.

3. Can I bring my dog?

All of the Team Heart Race for Life events except Caernarfon are suitable for dogs. However, we would ask that you be a responsible dog owner when bringing your pet to a Race for Life event; scoop the poop and make sure you bring water to keep your pet hydrated.
