Dance-a-thon - East Cheshire Hospice


Reckon you have got what it takes to become the next Darcey Bussell?

Why not take on the ultimate virtual challenge and hold a dance-a-thon for you and your buddies… Or on your own if you prefer to bust some moves solo!

In the comfort of your own home, set the challenge to dance for 6 hours straight, or 12 or even 24 hours of continued dancing if you’re feeling brave. Team up with some friends and set up a video chat to dance together and keep each other motivated. What’s even better, you could always live stream your event using sites such as YouTube, and link the live stream directly to your Just Giving Fundraising page! That way your supporters can watch your challenge and donate all in the same place.

If you didn’t want to dance in one go, why not spread the challenge out over a week. Commit to dancing for an hour each day whether that’s in the morning, after school or work or in the middle of the night if you are a night owl.

How do I get started?

Whichever dancing challenge you decide to take on, start by setting up your Just Giving page here and follow the simple step-by-step process to creating your fundraising page. Make sure to fill in the details about your challenge, set yourself a fundraising target, share your page with friends and family on social media, email, WhatsApp, text… And away you go!

To add a live stream link to your fundraising page, follow Just Giving step-by-step guide provided here.
