Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

- Demelza Hospice Care for Children is challenging supporters to complete a 10-week virtual online race around parts of Australia and New Zealand by recording the number of steps they take from day to day. Teams of four will wear pedometers, which will measure the distance they cover in their daily lives. Each team member will have a unique animated character corresponding to their pedometer on the charity's challenge page. Data uploaded every day from each pedometer will move the virtual character around the 16-stage route. The virtual race starts on 27 April and costs £25 plus VAT. Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship.

- The Prostate Cancer Charity has extended its annual awareness week to cover the whole month of March. The charity aims to raise £20,000 from a five-a-side football tournament at the Goals Soccer Centre in Wembley, north-west London, on 14 March.

- World Emergency Relief is asking people to celebrate Easter by donating £6, which it says is the average price of an Easter egg. Each donation will pay for a laying hen for a poor family in east Africa.

- Shelter is holding the UK's first 'vertical rush', a race up London's Tower 42, on 19 March. Entry costs £35 per person. Individual participants must raise £150 and teams must raise £750.

- Mercy Ships, the humanitarian charity, has launched an Easter fundraising campaign to support its work in Africa. The charity wants schools, offices and churches to raise funds by holding Easter breakfasts.
