If you have any questions or concerns, or in case of an accident, you can always ask for help at our information desk or contact one of the UNICEF staff on site.


How do the fundraising goals work?

For individual participants: Set your own fundraising goal. Then you can ask your friends and family to sponsor you by making donations on your participant page. For teams: Set a group goal and get your friends and family to sponsor you. Since each team member will as well have an individual participation page, you can also set an individual fundraising goal for yourself. Donations can either be made on the team page or on one of the team members' page. All donations to team members are automatically added up on the team page.

What happens if I don't reach my fundraising goal?

Fundraising goals are intended to be motivational. You are not supposed to pay any difference if the goal is not met.

How and until when can I raise funds?

Share the link to your donation page with your friends and family or on social networks. You can collect donations from the moment you register until 19th of May 2024. Please note that donations can only be collected online on your participant page or on your team page. Our fundraising tips
