Thank you for joining the Refuge 3000 squats in November challenge. Below are some frequently asked questions, you can also put queries on our Facebook group.

Please note, this challenge, and the Facebook group, are now closed to new joiners. Thank you for your support.

Q. I just signed up, now what?

A. Firstly, join the Facebook Group we set up for this challenge. Click ‘Join Group’. Once you’re in, you can get your pack, including a t-shirt, get tips, be inspired and find out anything you want to know about the challenge!

Q. How do I keep track of how much I’ve done?

A.This is a self-reported challenge. We’ll include a planner in your challenge pack so you can tick off each day. You can use different apps on your mobile phone or fitness trackers if you wish. You can then update the group or your Facebook fundraising page manually to let everyone know how you are getting on.

Q. What if I don’t complete the challenge?

A.The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. There are people of all levels of fitness doing this challenge. The important thing is that you’re doing something that challenges you. This will vary from person to person, so tailor the challenge however you like. It should be tough, but doable. You should feel satisfied when you finish it! Do as much as you can. Every squat helps.

Q. How do I raise money?

A. Facebook Fundraisers are the easiest way to raise money. You can set one up in a few seconds here – don’t forget to set your end date for 1 December. It’s then really easy to share the page with your Facebook friends. There is no minimum target so every pound raised will make a difference. We created a video on how to set up your fundraiser here.

Q. How do I change the date on my fundraising page?

A. On your fundraising page in Facebook, go to ‘manage your page’ and ‘edit’. You will be able to change the date to the 1st December. We’ve created a video on how to do this here.

Q. Why has my fundraising page closed?

A. Facebook fundraising pages automatically close after 14 days. To continue fundraising you will need to set up a new page and change the end date. On your fundraising page in Facebook, go to ‘manage your page’ and ‘edit’. You will be able to change the date to the 1st December.

Q. What if I don’t have Facebook/my sponsors don’t have Facebook?

A. You can set up a JustGiving page instead by clicking on this link. Make sure to name your page ‘(YOUR NAME) 3000 Squats in November Challenge for Refuge’ and **make sure to set it to end on 1st December**.

Q. Where will my friends’ money go?

A. Directly to Refuge. You don’t have to worry about this. It happens automatically.

Q. My friends have donated any I cannot see their donation on my page?

A. If your friends donated using PayPal, this can take a few days to appear on your page so don’t worry!

Q. Can I start late or early?

A. Our challenge does not start until 1st November. You will have your challenge pack and t-shirt for then. You can of course join after 1st November to complete a month completing 3000 squats for Refuge.

Q. Can I just raise money offline?

A. Our event is being run through Facebook though if you want to make a donation another way then please do this via our donation page on our website.
