The Irish Life Dublin Marathon is a major event in the annual running calendar in Ireland. It’s also a fantastic source of fundraising for Irish charities, with over €9 million raised each year by participants.
The event operates a charity programme which has 50 Irish and International charity partners on board and continues to grow each year. Participants can apply to run and raise funds for any of these charity partners, or they can choose to run in aid of their own preferred cause, provided that they have a general entry place.
All they need to do is visit the Irish Life Dublin Marathon Event Page on iDonate and click ‘Start Fundraising‘ to create their own personal fundraising page for this charity.
Alternatively, causes can set up a charity team page for the Dublin Marathon which fundraisers can join. Joining this team page will also create a personal fundraising page for the participant, plus their page will be connected to the charity team, bringing participants together.
iDonate have provided a free tool which makes it quick and easy for causes to set up a Dublin Marathon Team Page. Just follow the steps below and then share this team page with your supporters so that anyone taking part in the marathon can join and start fundraising!
