If you don’t have Facebook but would still like to take part in the challenge, you can fundraise by setting up a JustGiving page. Please note, challenge updates will be shared in the Facebook group.
The entire challenge will be hosted on the Facebook group. You will be able to chat with other likeminded legends, receive and share top tips and post about your amazing challenge. You will also receive information and tips from Guide Dogs via your Facebook fundraiser.
There is no registration fee or costs for the t-shirt. If you would like to make a donation to your own Facebook fundraiser to cover the cost of postage that would be greatly appreciated.
There isn’t a fundraising target for 2,000 Burpees for Guide Dogs, however we think this epic physical challenge will be a brilliant way of fundraising for Guide Dogs. So, we have set your fundraising page target to £120. If you would like to change this, follow these steps…
Facebook is a super easy way to fundraise, but we understand not everyone has access. You can also fundraise through JustGiving by setting up a JustGiving page.
You could use the handy burpee tracker which will be sent to you alongside the t-shirt (if you have requested one) or visit our fundraising resources page to download your burpee tracker.
Do I need to send proof of my burpees to Guide Dogs? No, you do not need to send us proof or verify your activity but feel free to share updates, photos and videos in the 2,000 Burpees for Guide Dogs Facebook group.
This is a virtual challenge and as such we will not be sending welcome packs. However, should you need any additional physical fundraising resources let us know and we will pop these in the post. Alternatively, visit our fundraising resources page and download these for free.
Yes of course. Just share one person’s Facebook fundraiser page and individually register for a t-shirt (if required).
Yes, you can join from anywhere! Unfortunately, we aren’t able to post t-shirts or fundraising packs internationally, but you can download and print materials from our resources hub.
The challenge is suitable for all ages and abilities. However, as this event is hosted on Facebook, we ask that all participants who sign up for this event are aged 18 or over.
The Events Team are hard at work fulfilling t-shirts twice a week, please wait five working days before enquiring about the whereabouts of your t-shirt.
The challenge runs from 1 – 28 February. We would encourage everyone to try and complete the challenge within this timeframe, however, if you would like to take part in March or extend the challenge, that is absolutely fine.
Please note, your Facebook fundraiser will automatically close on 28 February 2022 and no more donations will be accepted so we would advise setting up a JustGiving page from the beginning which can be kept open longer if you are planning to complete your burpees at a later date.
Click on the box that says "select address", it may appear as if it is greyed out, but the address will then show.
Guide Dogs relies on donations to continue our life-changing work. Every pound raised makes a difference to people in the UK living with sight loss. The money you raise will help us provide life-changing services for thousands of people with a vision impairment. From covering the costs of our working guide dogs, including food, vets’ bills and ongoing training, to empowering young people with sight loss by teaching them independent living skills. We couldn’t do this vital work without our amazing supporters like you.
