# cd into your repository
$ cd myfork

# check of you have URL for the original repository
$ git remote -v

# this will list your remotes, this might look like
origin  «remote url»

# if you do not have a URL for the original repository,
# often referred to as parent
$ git remote add parent «parent-url»

# pull from the parent
$ git pull parent «branch»

# add the changes to your fork
$ git push
