Strava and GivePenny make sponsored events easier to manage

Strava is an app that can turn your phone into a running and cycling computer. Givepenny is a service which connects apps to fundraising challenges to help good causes raise more.

Together, with a new Strava feature called MOVING, fundraisers can now track any activity and so money can be accrued per kilometre or per minute.

So you could previously encourage fundraisers to run or cycle for your charity, but now you can add things like yoga and dog walking, so the list is pretty much endless if it involves movement.

This may be a new area of fundraising, but it certainly seems worth a look. The links above will take you to the Strava and GivePenny sites, and click here to learn more about the new MOVING feature.
