Hour Generation Foundation invites you to participate in the Walk and Wellness Journey. This journey is focused on promoting the social and emotional health of our community. At Hour Generation Foundation we inspire and empower youth to explore their talents by providing information, advocacy and service allowing them to maximize their potential and realize their special gifts. Each registered participant’s fee provides one hour of free tutoring for students impacted academically by COVID-19, in Prince Georges County, MD.
We’d like to invite you, your family, friends, and co-workers to join us for the third annual Hour Generation Foundation (HGF) Virtual Mental Wellness Fitness Journey 2023 being held May 13 – June 13. This is an opportunity to move for something that matters–whether that’s for health, wellness, self- love or in memory of a loved one. We hope it will also be a chance to connect with your local community and share the message of empowering our communities in a new way.
As a virtual wellness participant, you can choose your own course and run, walk, biking, weight lifting, yoga, massage, meditation, hip hop dance, aerobics, in your own community. This journey is about getting back to being the best you in a healthy way that makes your whole person well. You can also create a team to support HGF and share why you and your team are on this journey with us.
To register as a virtual wellness participant, you need to purchase the official Virtual Waik and Wellness Journey. Make sure you register before May 20, if you would like to purchase a T-shirt! We hope to rally virtual participants in more than 48 states and several countries to share the message of mindfulness and encourage hope and health in our communities.
Whether you’re joining us in person or “virtually,” you can also invite your friends and family to help sponsor your run through a personalized fundraising page. The funds raised through these sponsorships will be invested directly into fulfilling HGF’s mission of INSPIRE AND EMPOWER YOUTH TO EXPLORE THEIR TALENTS BY PROVIDING INFORMATION, ADVOCACY, AND SERVICE ALLOWING THEM TO MAXIMIZE THEIR POTENTIAL AND REALIZE THEIR SPECIAL GIFTS. Registration will be open the entire event. The sooner you join, the more you can move and win this challenge!! What will you run for?

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?

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.
