Step 2: After the registration process, participants will be asked if they would like to set up a fundraising page.
Step 3: You then need to register with everydayhero.
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.
