Setting up a mission is so easy.

Just hit the START YOUR MISSION button and then plot your mission path on the map.

Your mission can be anything you want. Walk to a famous landmark, swim across some big stretch of water, cycle across the nation. Whatever tickles your fancy!

Once your mission is set up, you and/or your team complete your usual exercise sessions such as walking your usual walking track or swimming in the pool, or whatever it happens to be. Each distance you complete goes towards reaching your mission goal.

For example, lets say that you set up a mission to swim the English channel between England and France. You go to the pool and swim your usual 1 mile, 3 times per week. So after each swim you would enter 1 mile into your mission page - either on the website or we have a nifty phone app available.

On your mission page, you'll see yourself advancing along your mission path and getting closer and closer to reaching the end.

When you create your mission, you can decide whether or not you want to use your mission as a fundraiser for either one of our pre approved charities/causes or for your own cause such as your sports team, school group, church group, non profit etc.

For solo missions, fundraising is optional.

For groups missions fundraising is required or you can just pay a small fee and elect not to fundraise.

More information about fundraising with your mission can be found on our Frequently Asked Questions page

Now that you're set up with a fundraising mission you need to spread the word and encourage people to visit your mission page and sponsor you.

You can do this by sharing your page on Facebook and Twitter, by email, in newsletters, on websites etc.

When people visit your page they can easily make a sponsorship.

If you are fundraising for your own cause, the money people sponsor goes directly into your PayPal account.

If you are fundraising for one of our pre approved charities/causes the money goes directly to the charities account.

* My Virtual Mission receives a small admin fee on sponsorship amounts. Read more on FAQ page.
