My Poppy Run Donate Fundraise Our new virtual fundraising event My Poppy Run lets you set yourself a personal challenge - choose your distance, location and time to run to raise vital funds to support our Armed Forces community. Choose your distance. It could be round your local park, 5k, 5 miles or more – set your own individual target. Decide on a date. You could aim for a special occasion like Armed Forces Day or during the Poppy Appeal. Or maybe you want to do it over a birthday or a weekend, whatever works best for you. Make it your own. You can put your own stamp on your challenge by running to mark a special event, or doing it with friends and family. Make sure it’s safe. Ensure you check the most up-to-date Government Guidelines for where you live or where you plan to run. Share your fundraising page. This will be set up automatically when you register for My Poppy Run. Let friends and family know what you are taking on. Don’t forget to share your updates on social media and with us using the hashtag #MyPoppyRun, so we can share your wonderful achievements.
