Virtual events and challenges

Many of our fundraising events this year have been cancelled, but find out how you can still support women with ovarian cancer.

Times have changed, but you can still be there for women with ovarian cancer. Join us for a virtual challenge or fundraiser from your own home and have fun with your loved ones while making a difference. By organising your fundraising event you’ll be helping to raise awareness, fund research and save lives.

Host a virtual event

It's easy to move your socialising, fundraising and awareness raising to a digital platform. 

Stuck for ideas? Here are a few favourites to help kick things off:

  • Set up a Facebook fundraiser to ask for donations to Target Ovarian Cancer – you could do this instead of receiving of birthday presents or to celebrate other special occasions. 
  • Host a virtual coffee morning, quiz night, book group or party! Use our guides for Skype [PDF], Zoom [PDF] or Facebook messenger [PDF] to get started and invite your friends and family to join in.
  • Take on a sponsored head shave.
  • Offer a virtual class of your favourite hobby or skill, such as baking, yoga, piano, or a foreign language taster! 
  • Livestream a virtual performance of singing, dancing or stand-up comedy using Facebook, YouTube or Twitch. Did you know, you can livestream directly to your JustGiving page, making it even easier for people to support you!
  • Take part in the 2.6 challenge by baking 26 cupcakes, cutting 2.6 inches off your hair or juggling for 26 seconds. 
  • Grab a gavel and host an online auction. If you choose eBay, the funds will come automatically to us if you select us as your chosen charity.
