How do I bank any offline fundraising? 

add remove

The best way to bank offline donations is through your online fundraising page with your own credit or debit card. 

Deposit the money into your bank account and then make the transaction directly onto your page. 

You can even make multiple transactions and add each donor’s name and their individual messages to you. Your total fundraising amount will then be shown on your page. You can get a copy of the receipt in their name and share it with them. 

How do I log my distance online with Strava, Fitbit or MapMyFitness? 

add remove

Your profile page includes your personal distance tally so you can track your distance towards your target.  

If you track your workouts with Fitbit, Strava or MapMyFitness your distances will automatically add to your tally. If you do not use one of these apps you can also log your fitness activities manually.  

Follow these steps to track your KMs automatically: 

  • Download the Fitbit, Strava or MapMyFitness app and set up your account. 
  • Log in to your account on Walk for Him and in your Dashboard go to the My Fitness Activity page. 
  • Under the heading ‘Connect your preferred Fitness app’, click your chosen app. 
  • Follow the prompts to connect your account. 
  • When you next work out, select ‘start your workout’ in the app on your phone. Once you end your workout, save your workout and your distance will be published to the tally on your page the following day. 
  • If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in and reconnect it. 
  • When using Fitbit, you must ‘start’ an activity and save it. Your cumulative daily kms will not automatically add to your page. If you are having issues, try syncing through BOTH your Fitbit and the Fitbit app on your smartphone.
  • Your tally will be updated each day with the previous day’s distances.  

      What do I do if my fitness app is connected but my data is still not showing on my page?

      add remove

      If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in to your fundraising dashboard and reconnect with the fitness app. 

          How long does it take for my preferred fitness app to sync?

          add remove

          It may take up to 24 hours for your fitness data to sync with your fundraising dashboard. If this has not occurred, please attempt relinking your app and adding any missed workouts manually on the “My Fitness Activity” page. 

              How do I log my distance online manually? 

              add remove

              You can manually add your kilometres to the tally in your My Fitness Activity tab of your profile after registering. This is a great option if you’re using a pedometer or don’t want to sync your fitness app. 

              Follow these steps to manually add your KMs: 

              • Log in to your account and select ‘My Fitness Activity’. 
              • Under ‘Add activity’, enter the date and distance. 
              • The number of KMs will now appear on your fundraising page! 

                  Can I post my photos or details on Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia’s social media pages? 

                  add remove

                  Definitely! We’d love to see what you’re up to. You can tag us in public posts and stories on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #WalkforHim so we can like, share or retweet your post! 

                      Who do I contact if I have any other questions? 

                      add remove

                      We're always here to help. Give us a call on 1800 22 00 99 or email us at walkforhim@pcfa.org.au
                      We are also available on our social media channels. Get in touch! 

                          I've shared my page on Facebook asking for donations using the Facebook Donate button. Will the funds I raise come to Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia?

                          add remove
                          Yes, they will, however, we advise that you don’t use the Facebook Donate button as we can’t link these donations to your fundraising page. If you’ve already set up a post, we ask that you: 
                          • Delete the post, as this is the only way to remove the Facebook Donate button. 
                          • Create a new Facebook post and share the link to your fundraising page without adding the ‘Donate’ button. 

                            Why aren't the donations that I'm receiving through Facebook showing up on my fundraising page? 

                            add remove
                            Facebook donations are handled and held by a third party, so we can’t sync these donations with Walk for Him due to limitations with the Facebook Donate button functionality. Given these limitations, we advise you not to use the Facebook Donate button to raise funds.  

                            If you’d like your friends and family to donate to you, we encourage you to share the link to your fundraising page instead. 

                              How do I create a team? 

                              add remove
                              You can create a team when you first register – it’s part of our simple 3 step registration process. Alternatively, you can go to your Fundraising “Dashboard” and select the “CREATE A TEAM” section, and follow the prompts. 

                                How does someone join my team once it’s set up? 

                                add remove
                                You simply go to the “MY TEAM” section and you can share the link to join your team from the “Invite others to join My Team“ section. From here they will be directed to either “Create an account” or “Login” to their existing account. 

                                  Can I change my team name? 

                                  add remove
                                  Yes. As team captain you can change your team name in the Team section of your dashboard. However, any links you’ve previously shared will not work. If you are having difficulties with this or urgently need to change your team name, please contact us at walkforhim@pcfa.org.au or on 1800 22 00 99. 

                                    Can I change my team fundraising target? 

                                    add remove
                                    Yes. You simply go to the “MY TEAM” section and then the “Team Page Settings” tab, where you can adjust your team's fundraising target. To find out how to adjust your personal fundraising target, head to your Dashboard. 

                                      How do I win prizes?
