Kaila's Komfort CRMO Awareness 5K will officially take place on Saturday, November 18, 2017. However, participants may complete their 5K anytime between November 18 and November 25, 2017. Supporters from all over the world will walk, run, bike, skip, wheel (wheelchairs), or roll 3.1 miles to support our CRMO community. The Virtual CRMO Awareness 5K is a virtual race, so you have the flexibility to participate wherever and whenever is most convenient for you! We want to band together CRMO families and friends from all over the world to support one another and bring awareness.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
------ x ------
Kaila’s Komfort is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created to provide comfort to children and adults diagnosed with Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis (CRMO), to bring awareness, and to support families affected by this disease. We ship care packages around the world to kids and adults with CRMO and their families.
Most importantly, your participation will show support for the CRMO community. Having a rare disease can be lonely. By bringing all of our families together worldwide, we can truly know we are not alone in this journey. We are virtually joining hands and walking side-by-side.
Proceeds from the Virtual CRMO Awareness 5K will be split evenly between the Kaila's Komfort Care Package Program, Seattle Children's Hospital CRMO Research Fund, and a new Kaila's Komfort Grant Fund set up to support local CRMO events and gatherings. This new Fund will help facilitate and encourage local CRMO families to start local in-person events to promote support and unity.
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.
How will I track my distance?
Download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward 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.
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.
