Celebrate Mother’s Day and WALK WITH HOPE the week of May 1–8, 2022.
In this virtual walk, you choose a time and location convenient to you!
Walk a 5K in one day or spread it throughout the week. Inside or outside, even on a treadmill—however you decide to WALK WITH HOPE you will make an impact and support single mothers.
Preregister now to create your own fundraising page and invite others to join your team. Or, ask friends, family and coworkers to support you by making a donation on your page.
Then, beginning on May 1st, track your steps by connecting your fitness device (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, etc.) to your Charity Footprints fundraising page. Or, download the Charity Footprints' IOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign. You can even upload your indoor workouts!
Continue to collect donations on your personal fundraising page until the end of Walk With HOPE on May 8th. Prizes will be awarded to the team and individual who raise the most money.
Getting through the actual day-to-day of life — not to mention juggling schedules or dealing with the fallout from supply shortages and unemployment — is stressful enough. The task of single parenting can feel insurmountable.

$150 - Provide all supplies needed for one infant layette and one case of diapers.

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.
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?
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.
