Its the morning of the run you have been training for for months.

You have perfected your playlist.

From the moment you start running until the moment you have crossed the line, you have meticulously planned it so that you will get a boost when you hit the wall, with "your song" coming on just as you approach the home stretch to cross the line. Now imagine those songs were replaced with Baby Shark and Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 because your mate Chris thought it would be hilarious. You can laugh along with him as you know you are raising money for charity by doing so.

How Does it Work?

Its simple!

  1. Sign in with Spotify.
  2. Name your playlist!
  3. Enter how far you are running and how long you think it will take.
  4. Share your donation link!

As your friends, family and colleagues donate to your worthy cause, we give them the ability to select a song to add to your playlist. On the day you commit to running whilst listening to your playlist.

On the 1st of every month, we donate all the money raised (minus a small amount in fees) to the selected charities.


There is no cost to you as a fundraiser for using Sponsor a Song.

(1.4% - 2.9%) +20p (depends on the card used) for each donation will go to our payment provider Stripe for providing payment services.

5% will be taken by Sponsor a Song as a platform fee.

We do not yet support gift Aid but we are working on it. Once this is implemented we will be able to give over 100% of your donation to charity (in the UK).
