ABOUT RUN-BIKE-HIKE TO REMEMBER CAMPAIGN
 
 
Welcome to Run-Bike-Hike to Remember! The purpose of this annual event is twofold. First and most importantly, this event was created to honor the memory of our loved ones. Second, this event will help raise funds and awareness for Home Health & Hospice Care based in Merrimack, NH.
 
Each participant will choose to run (25 miles), bike (100 miles), or hike/walk (15 miles) during this week-long event. This event takes place where you are and when you want, anytime between September 7 and September 13, 2024. You may choose to complete your miles outside or inside on equipment (or both!).
 
The registration fee is $25 per participant and upon registration, you commit to raising $250. Compete with others individually or create a team!
 
Once registered, you will receive a link to set up your own fundraising page that you can personalize with photos and your own story about why you are participating. We encourage you to share with others via social media to spread the word! Participating in this fundraising event is something to be proud of and recognized by your peers! Show your smiling faces!
 
These hand-tuned artisan wind chimes were chosen as a beautiful way to remember a loved one; every breeze brings new enchantment.

HOW YOUR PARTICIPATION HELPS
Many people equate the word hospice with dying, but at Home Health & Hospice Care, hospice is so much more. When medical care can no longer offer a cure, hospice focuses on providing patients with comfort, dignity and quality of life at the end of life. Our team of healthcare professionals takes pride in providing compassionate, attentive care to patients and their families as the journey of life comes to an end. We provide hospice care in patient's homes, in local nursing homes, and at our Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH.

We do receive compensation from Medicare, Medicaid, and some insurance companies, but this is most often not enough to cover someone’s care. 100% of the funds received stay within the communities we serve and helps to support the Community Hospice House; an end-of-life care facility with 16 state-of-the-art patient suites.
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?
