MM+M invites members of the greater healthcare community to join us for the second annual MM+M Move Together event, scheduled for February 8-12, 2021. In the weeks leading up to the event, we want to #WarmUpForMoveTogether by showing us how you're getting ready for the challenge.
As with the first MM+M Move Together, held last August, the five-day challenge will also highlight the importance of tending to one’s physical well-being. However, this second event will also shine a light on mental and emotional health, crucial components of overall well-being during the COVID-19 era. During the event, MM+M Move Together participants will be asked to track their activities and, collectively, virtually circle the country, totaling 2 million footprints -- alongside the entire MM+M community. Participants can move together around the US by donating time, money, or a commitment to fitness.We are encouraging our community to take a collective ‘pause’ and commit to doing good for themselves or for others for one week in February. You can also join in simply by donating.
For each "do good for you" and "do good for others" activity you accomplish, you will earn a certain amount of points. MM+M will match those points to a dollar amount up to $5,000, which will be donated to our beneficiary partner, World Central Kitchen, to help them continue their efforts toward feeding families in need.
For those who are planning to do activities together in-person, we encourage you to maintain a safe social distance and to wear masks when you are taking part in the challenge. We encourage everyone to do this challenge with their health and safety in mind.
With traditional safety nets like school feeding programs, city services, and food banks struggling to meet basic needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the country’s hospital workers stretched thinner than ever before, WCK is working across America to safely distribute individually packaged, fresh meals in communities that need support – for children and families to pick up and take home, as well as delivery to seniors who cannot venture outside. WCK is now active in dozens of cities providing over 250,000 fresh meals every day.
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?
This campaign is free to participate in.
However, we encourage you to donate optional/suggested amount during registration or you can always donate any amount on your fundraising page after the registration.
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.
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?
