Signing up

Can I sign up offline?

Yes, you can sign up over the phone by calling 020 7923 5474, or you can email us at fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk and we'll send you a paper form.

Can I enter on the day?

Can children take part on their own?

Anyone under the age of 16 needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is responsible for them on the day. 

How do I join on the Target Ovarian Cancer Events App?

All participants with a unique email address will be sent an access code at the time of registration. If you can't find an email with your code, or if you signed up as a team under one email address, you can request a new code by calling 020 7923 5474 or by emailing us: fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk.

Can I make changes to my entry?

Yes, please contact us and we’d be happy to make any changes. This includes if you've signed up individually and would now like to become part of a team.

I can’t attend anymore, can I get my money back?

The registration fee is non-refundable but if you’d like someone else to take part in your place, please contact us as soon as possible.


Why is there a minimum sponsorship amount?

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 and we rely on all of our participants raising the minimum pledge as well as those exceeding it. 

If you’d like some tips on how to raise £100, our fundraising team would be more than happy to help with this. 

How do I set up my donation page?

You'll have the option of setting up a donation page as part of the online registration process. This donation page works with our online systems, so we ask that you use it instead of other sites like JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving.

You’ll receive clear instructions on how to set it up, both during and after the registration process, and our staff are on hand to give you any help you need.

Can I use sponsorship forms instead of a donation page?

Yes, you can print our sponsorship form [PDF] or contact us if you’d like us to send you some: fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk

I've raised money offline, how do I pay in my sponsorship?

You can pay in your sponsorship online, by phone on 020 7923 5474, or you can send a cheque, made payable to ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’, to Target Ovarian Cancer, 30 Angel Gate, City Road, London EC1V 2PT. Please write your name and ‘The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run’ at the back of each cheque. 

Is there a deadline for sending in sponsorship?

We ask that all sponsorship is paid in by 31 August 2022.

If you have any more questions please email fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk or call us on 020 7923 5474 and we’ll be happy to help.
