Walk, run, or bike to end corruption in DC and save the future of America! Congress has become corrupted by the influence of big-monied special interests and no longer represents the people. Americans, from all across the political spectrum, are UNITING to end corruption and restore power back to the people.
Why 28 million steps? The 28th Amendment. Step up to End Corruption is sponsored by Wolf-PAC, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization fighting for a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to fix our broken campaign finance system and restore a government that represents the people. This issue is critical to the survival of our country. Please help us raise awareness and funds!
Registration is free - run, walk, or bike as much as you can from September 5th - October 31st! 2,000 steps per mile no matter which method you choose. Start your own team, invite your friends, family, or anyone who might be interested in stepping up to end corruption. You can connect your device or simply submit your distance after each activity. *If you walk with your pet you are allowed to count it as double the steps. Pets can walk to end corruption too, but you better make sure to share a photo in our scrapbook! (scrapbook found in the dropdown menu in your profile)
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals awarded during a Zoom video ceremony on November 1st for: Most footprints by an individual, Most footprints by a team, Most steps taken by an individual, Most steps taken by a team, Top fundraiser, Top fundraising team, Cutest pet (from pics on our scrapbook), and Best costume.
As you'll see on the virtual map below, this race will start symbolically at Independence Hall in Philadelphia and return to there once we reach 28 million steps. We've set a lofty goal, but we believe Americans are more than capable of stepping up! We're all in this together. Thank you.
Funds go directly to Wolf-PAC and the fight to end corruption. Funds will be used to expand staff and educate the public about the urgent need for a U.S. Constitutional Amendment to fix our corrupt campaign finance system and restore a truly representative government in America.
*Please note that Wolf-PAC is classified as a 501(c)(4) organization and contributions are not deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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?

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.

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.
