Few people ever ask me to sponsor them/donate. Those requests that I do get are usually emails, or texts, telling me about their Justgiving page, which is easy enough to ignore
When I ran the London Marathon a few years ago, I had my club place, so no need to raise any money.
So many people offered, unsolicited, to sponsor me (assuming that I must be raising money for charity) that in the end I decided to accept if it was offered, but I never asked anyone to sponsor me, or make a donation.
Just from offered donations, I raised £1,300.
