STEP 1: Register
REGISTER as an individual or create and/or join a team. Once registered, set up your fundraising page with your custom fitness and fundraising goals you plan to achieve by April 30, 2024. (You can change these goals at any time under "Edit Fundraiser". Our suggested individual fundraising goal is $50, but we love overachievers)
STEP 2: Track
TRACK your steps and miles from April 1st to April 30th! All activities count! Be sure to check out activity conversion chart.
  • Download the free Charity Footprints App for iOS or Android.
  • Sync your fitness device (Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, Google Fit, Misfit, Strava) or use the health app on your Smartphone
  • Manually enter your miles on your event page
STEP 3: Brag
BRAG! Post online that you have your spot, you are in training/activity mode, and ready to make a difference and maintain a healthier lifestyle! Share your personal fundraiser page link with your network of friends, family, and colleagues to encourage them to donate to your efforts! We encourage you to post pictures to the Community Scrapbook! Show off your activities and progress towards your goal & spreading awareness.
Don’t forget about matching gift opportunities. Encourage your supporters to explore their employer’s matching gift programs. Many corporations will match their employee’s donations to an accredited charitable organization. It's an easy way to double or even triple the impact of a personal contribution. If you're unsure about your employers matching program, contact the specific HR department.
Awards and Prizes
You and your team members will work towards achieving the overall fundraising and fitness goal while competing against the other teams! At the end of the campaign, there will be prizes for the individual and team winners that raise the most funds by April 30th!
You can participate in this challenge by doing pretty much anything that elevates your heart rate. This includes walking, running, cycling or any of your favorite fitness activities! Just make sure to log it! For activities that cannot be measured in steps or miles, please refer to the PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CONVERSION CHART below.

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.

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.
