Why is there a minimum sponsorship?
We rely on voluntary donations and sponsorship raised from events to continue our work. The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run is our largest fundraising event and as well as raising awareness, it's responsible for raising a substantial amount of the income we invest into beating ovarian cancer. We must do much more than just cover the cost of the event, so we encourage our participants to aim to raise the minimum pledge – if you’d like some tips on how to raise £100, our friendly fundraising team would be more than happy to help, so send an email to [email protected]
How do I set up my fundraising page?
Your online fundraising page will be automatically created for you when you sign up and you'll be able to view and customise your page using the log-in details you created – your log-in details will be sent to you via email, so don't forget to check your junk folder!
If you sign up offline, a page will be created for you and you'll be emailed a link to create a password.
How do I pay in my sponsorship?
If you've raised money offline, calculate the total amount, add it to your bank account and then add it to your fundraising page (which is automatically created once you've completed your online registration) via the 'add offline donation' button.
Or you can do one of the following:
1. donate online - ensure you select 'Fundraising / Paying in sponsorship' and include 'The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run, London' under 'Event name'
2. donate by post - send us a cheque made payable to ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’ to Target Ovarian Cancer, 30 Angel Gate, City Road, London, EC1V 2PT. Please write your full name and 'The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run, London' at the back of each cheque
3. direct bank transfer - call us on 020 7923 5474
Is there a sponsorship deadline?
We ask that all sponsorship is paid in by Monday 27 November 2023.
When will I receive my t-shirt?
Your t-shirt (or running vest if you've upgraded for £7) will be sent to you around a week before the event. If you sign up the week of the event, you’ll need to collect this on the day.
Will the route be accessible?
Yes, the route is fully accessible for wheelchairs.
Are there any toilets on the route?
Yes, there will be toilets at the start/finish area.
Will runners start first?

Covid-19 – will the event be safe?
As an outdoor event with plenty of space, we’re able to make the event safe and fully compliant with government guidelines. We don’t expect any changes that would affect our ability to put on The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run, London but we’ll be in touch with any government updates or changes to the law that could affect your participation.
