Through this unity-filled event. friends, family, and community members are competitively challenged and motivated to cover distance while raising funds over a period of time. Every user's journey contributes to a larger collective mission that strives both individually and communally to make a difference in the fight against hunger. We hope you’ll join us on this collaborative journey towards social change!

Creighton Community Foundation was established to support Creighton School District and the communities within its east central Phoenix boundaries by bringing resources to bear upon life needs and whole person development of people within some of the poorest neighborhoods in urban Phoenix. Our mission is to develop sustainable programs and initiatives to help improve youth life outcomes. We focus on building vibrant, healthy communities where strong neighborhoods, inspirational adult connections, and excellent, well-supported schools, help kids reach their full life potential.

Funds raised through the virtual Walk/Run/Ride for Hunger will go toward sustaining Feeding Phoenix, a vital community program that works to help those in need. Every week, food box distribution takes place via drive-thru events and operates community-accessible food pantries to address issues beyond the capacity of local food banks. For each event, more than 350 families have access to healthy food boxes with fresh produce, dairy products, eggs, bread and other non-perishables, all acquired at wholesale prices from local food banks. Through these efforts, many people based in the community can get the nutrition they need. This program remains a cornerstone of the community's support system.
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.
