Virtual Kiltwalk Sign-up Guide

Category Kiltwalk

First of all, thank you so much for joining Team Fresh Start to fundraise for this year’s Virtual Kiltwalk! We are delighted that the Kiltwalk is going ahead in a safe and socially distant manner and that you are joining our ranks to fundraise for the most vulnerable members of our community.

As you may know, one of the best parts of the Kiltwalk is that the Tom Hunter Foundation will give Fresh Start an extra 50% on top of what you raise for us – so every donation is worth 150%! If you raise £100 for Fresh Start through the Kiltwalk, then we will receive £150 in total – amazing! To make sure you are set up to qualify for this funding, please follow our handy guide below to signing up.

Getting started

Head to the Kiltwalk page using the link below and select the type of registration you need – Adult or Child. Another great thing about this year’s virtual walk is that registration for an adult is only £12.80!

Signing up

Firstly, select if you would like to sign up by email or using another application. This guide will show you how to proceed when setting up an email account. Once you select the green button to sign up by email, you will be prompted to enter some initial details and agree to everydayhero’s Privacy Policy and T’s & C’s.

My Details

Fill out your personal details on the next page and when you get to the Charity section, make sure you click "Choose your own charity or cause". This will then allow you to search for Fresh Start in the box and select us from the list show.

Tip: There are a few charities with a similar name, make sure to select “Fresh Start” to fundraise for us!

Carry on completing the rest of this page, the next section of the form asks if you would like to join a team, this is not the stage where you join the Fresh Start team so unless you are joining another team you can skip this part.

You can then fill out the rest of this form and complete payment for your place on the Kiltwalk.


Once you have completed your payment you will be shown confirmation of your entry and have the option to “View my page” – click this button to be taken to everydayhero where you can join Team Fresh Start!


The last step is to set up your own fundraising page on everydayhero and join Team Fresh Start so we can all fundraise together!

Once you are on your page, there will be a few pop ups which you can come back to later, use the search function located in the top left of your screen and enter “Team Fresh Start”. You will see us right at the top, click support and be taken to the Team page.

Create your page

You will then be prompted to create a page in order to join our team, just pop your information into the form shown.

It is very important that “charity” you select in this form is The Kiltwalk! This is how we get the 50% extra funding and you have already selected Fresh Start on your Kiltwalk form so they know you are walking for Fresh Start.

Once you hit “Create Fundraising Page” that is you all set up! You can now customise your page to tell your story, why you are supporting us and add your picture and target before you start sharing with your friends and family to drum up those all-important donations!

Thank you for choosing to support Fresh Start and, virtually, walk with us to help people make homes for themselves in Edinburgh. You are fantastic!
