Cancer can sweep away childhood with hospital stays, treatments, and doctor's appointments. Camp One Step gives it back! We provide a safe, fun place for kids to enjoy simply joys of childhood with peers who understand them. Campers enjoy swimming, arts and crafts, and games that promote inclusion. A volunteer medical staff are available to care for the camper's unique medical needs.
Camp One Step by Children's Oncology Services believes that cancer should not prevent a child from enjoying the simple joys of childhood. When kids are diagnosed with cancer, childhood can swept away by appointments, treatments, and hospital visits. Camp One Step gives childhood back through programs with volunteer medical professionals who can care for the unique medical needs of children so they can enjoy fishing, arts and crafts, games that promote inclusion, and peers who understand.
The approximate cost to send one child to camp for one life-changing week is $1,000. Our team goal is to send one child with cancer to camp for one week where they can regain their childhood!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------ x ------
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.
If your campaign has teams, you can see all the existing teams on campaign's home page. You can click "Join Team" button to register for the campaign with the selected team.
If you have already registered for the campaign but did not join a team at the time of registration, you can still join a team by clicking on the "Join Team" button on the home page. It will assign you the team and redirect you to your team page.
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 have already joined a team, we do not allow switching of team as team's reports data is dependent on team's composition and changing team may affect a team's performance.
If you still want to change your team (like if you joined a team by mistake) or create your own team, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will switch your team.
