ABOUT ASIS FOUNDATION FITNESS CHALLENGE 2022 CAMPAIGN
 
Join your security colleagues across the globe and focus on your fitness to support your ASIS Foundation. Run, bike, exercise, or walk --any activity counts-- from anywhere in the world. Participate at your own pace, all fitness levels are welcome!
 
Track your exercise to help us collectively move more than 20,000 miles/32,000 kilometers during the 8-week challenge. Your participation supports global security professionals with certification scholarships, practical research, member hardship grants, and more. Help us reach our goal of raising $34,000 in honor of our 34,000 ASIS members.
 
Joining the challenge is easy!
 
  • Register online beginning 15 July. Donate $25 or more and set your personal fitness goal for the 8-week challenge. If you do mostly bike riding, choose 'biker'. For all other exercise such as walking, running, dancing or classes, choose 'walker/runner'. After you register, look for an e-mail from 'CharityFootprints' with your custom ebib graphic attached.
  • Participate individually, join a team, or start your own corporate, chapter, or community team and challenge others to compete. You'll even have the option to 'Pay it Forward' by covering the donations of other team members in one transaction when you register.
  • Set up your personal fundraising page and invite your friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor you. (Hint: This is an easy way to increase your personal fundraising total.)
  • Sync your personal fitness tracker (FitBit, Apple Watch, Garmin, etc.) with the CharityFootprints application, or plan to enter your own activities into the app.
  • Start tracking and entering activity on or after 25 July and continue through 16 September 2022. (Need help converting your activity into steps? Access our handy conversion chart here!)
 
After the Challenge starts, you can share a photo of ‘where in the world’ you are exercising. Post a photo of yourself--in front of your local scenery, town or landmark—here in the scrapbook and/or on social media using #ASISonTheMove and #ASISFoundation.

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.
