ABOUT 30 MILES IN THIRTY DAYS CAMPAIGN

DONATE NOW

 

We are looking for members of the community to recruit friends, colleagues and family members to participate in our virtual challenge to help raise awareness and funds for children battling cancer. This is a great way to achieve your fitness goals and unlike a traditional race, this challenge takes place wherever you are located, at your convenience. Our 30 Miles in Thirty Days challenge starts September 1st and runs through 30th. Our goal is to raise a total of $5,000 to grant 30 little wish gifts to children battling cancer. Adults who reach their 30 mile goal receive a pair of embroidered Little Wish socks and kids receive a Little Wish wristband!

 

There are just a few easy steps for you to follow:

 

Step ONE – Join the race by clicking on any “Register” button on this page.

 

Step TWO – Tell everyone about it! Invite your colleagues, family and friends to join you. Then you may like to make a donation or get pledges to support your personal challenge.

 

Step THREE – Participate in the challenge. Walk, run or bike your thirty miles within the 30-day period. Download the free Charity Footprints app to track your progress. If you have a fitness device, link it to the App and your miles will be tracked automatically. If not, manually enter your own steps on your event page. Post pictures and tag @littlewishfoundation with the #30in30forlw

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?

Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.

Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.

What is the campaign registration fee?

Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.

The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.

How can I create my fundraising page?

Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.

How will I track my distance?

You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, Google Fit, Misfit, Strava), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign. ?>

If you workout indoors (treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike etc.), you can upload your workouts here.

How do I join a team on this campaign?

While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.

I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?

All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.

Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.

That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.

How do I change or switch my team?

If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
