ABOUT TEAM HASC VIRTUAL MARATHON, THANKSGIVING 2020 CAMPAIGN
Team HASC Marathon 2020… Uncancelled! We are excited to announce the Team HASC 2020 Virtual Marathon in support of the special campers and families of Camp HASC. This is a fantastic opportunity to join our “camper captains” and safely run from the comfort of your own home or follow your favorite local route.
We look forward to hosting the virtual run over the coming weeks, culminating with Thanksgiving weekend. Choose the running/walking length that you’re comfortable with (or challenge yourself!) and you’ll have until Thanksgiving weekend to complete your goal. Use your favorite distance tracking device or your smartphone, or just upload your distance on the website and your running will help Team HASC succeed. You can even track your progress on the interactive group Team HASC map!
Whether you join a camper team, form your own team or run as an individual, the virtual run is the perfect opportunity to honor our campers and support Camp HASC’s efforts to give them the summer of a lifetime and provide their families with valuable respite.
This November, the month of “Thanks & Giving”, your participation and generosity make all the difference to our campers, their families, and our staff. Yasher Koach!
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Camp HASC provides over 350 children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities an unforgettable summer experience. Camp HASC serves the social, therapeutic, academic, recreational and medical needs of all its campers with a positive, ‘person first’ approach to care.
I’m excited to join Team HASC’s virtual run 2020 in support of Camp HASC! Team HASC’s virtual run raises much-needed funds to help Camp HASC provide its one of a kind service to individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. Camp HASC provides a full summer of fun, growth, and loving care for over 350 campers each summer, as well as much needed respite for their families.
Camp HASC is an atmosphere filled with fun, happiness, and top-notch care. Where professionals from the medical, therapy, academic, recreation, and behavior team work together with the counselors and caretakers to provide the very best for their campers. It’s a truly unique program and I’m proud to do my best to help support their efforts by running and fundraising with Team HASC in the virtual race.
Please donate to help me reach my goal. And on behalf of the campers, families, and staff of Camp HASC... thank you in advance for your generosity!
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.
