FAQ VCM CHARITY 2016
How does ‘Run for Charity’ work at the Vienna City Marathon?
‘Run for Charity’ tries to enable every competitor to become involved for a good cause. It only takes a few clicks to create an individual page for an organisation on the VCM Charity Site that represents a concern of great importance to you. Collect donations for this organisation together with your family and friends via your own page and support this essential cause. As a thank you, from 300€ onwards (500€ if you participate as a relay team of 4), you will receive a running-kit with terrific contents: a running shirt, professional running training and many more. Every organisation has its own special way to say “Thank you”.
Do I have to donate the 300€ myself?
No, that is just the designated target for your donation page. Motivate your friends and family to support you with your proposition! Feel free to dream up with something original. The charity associates have plenty of tips to turn your donation plan into a success!
What is the procedure of the donation page’s creation?
After the page goes online, an assistant of the chosen organisation will contact you and help you with tips for a successful donation campaign.
What happens when I exceed the 300€ mark?
As soon as you reach the minimum of donations, please contact your organisation to receive your running kit. The organisation will keep up the contact, it is up to you to upgrade your own target.
