ABOUT TREK ACROSS AMERICA CAMPAIGN
Uniting for Growth, Connection, and Purpose
 
 
Consequence of Habit (a 501c3 nonprofit) is seeking YOU to help us "Trek Across America". This initiative goes beyond mere fitness and fundraising, it's a platform meant to build connections through a shared experience and challenge.

 

As we lace up our shoes for this virtual journey throughout June, we commit to more than just physical exertion; we commit to being part of a nationwide movement designed to bring awareness to the impact habits have on our mental and physical wellness. Together, we aim to cover an astounding 3,000 miles, each step a testament to our shared potential and understanding of ourselves.

 

Driven by the power of habit, we recognize that small actions lead to monumental outcomes. With each mile logged and every donation received, we draw closer to our fundraising goal of $30,000—a testament to our dedication to fostering growth and advocating for the life-altering impact of healthy habits.

 

Yet, the Trek Across America transcends mere statistics; it's about the profound connections forged as we navigate the landscape of self-improvement. Through walking, running, and rucking, we discover the joy of shared purpose and the strength found in community.

 

Every drop of sweat, every blister, and every tired muscle symbolizes our resilience and serves as a reminder of our untapped potential. As June draws to a close, we will come together to celebrate our achievements and inspire others through a synchronized live virtual rucking event—a beacon of hope illuminating the path to follow.

 

Every participant plays a vital role in weaving the communal journey—a journey where growth, connection, and purpose through challenges become guiding lights for all.

 

Participants will find incentives in the form of tiered registration fees, each of which will include a t-shirt and patches. Additionally, they will receive virtual certificates, access to social sharing platforms to celebrate accomplishments, and heartfelt letters of appreciation for their invaluable contribution.

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.

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.
