Social media is a great way to raise awareness of your fundraising activity or challenge and it is also a powerful tool for raising awareness of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). Social media websites can give you access to a massive audience of potential supporters. The other important benefit of these sites is that they provide quick, easy and free access to networks!

Perhaps you could make a video that tells people what you are doing and why. CPT fundraiser Seb Falk's amusing video of him training for the London Marathon in his gherkin costume helped him raise huge awareness and generate support for his challenge.
