Julie McVey was a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and beloved teacher. She also served for years as a member of the United Way board of directors.
We will never forget her laughter, her wise and thoughtful approach to service, her commitment to education and the community, and the infinite love she had for her family. Honoring her memory requires something special.
In conjunction with Julie's Little Libraries, we have created Julie McVey Reading Day, which will include a virtual walk/run, a live children's walk/run, and a morning reading festival. The first Julie McVey Reading Day will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Monmouth's Public Square.
To join us in our efforts to raise funds in Julie's honor, please consider signing up now for our virtual fundraising challenge! The process is easy and the virtual race is designed specifically to fit into your schedule!
You have three months to complete seven miles of physical activity and log it. Walk on the treadmill or step machine, swim, ride your bike...whatever works for you! iPhone/Apple owners can use their iPhone, Apple Watch, or Fitbit to track their miles; those with Google or Android devices can use GoogleFit or Fitbit. If you are not comfortable tracking miles that way, simply track them yourself and let us know when you are done!
Also, if you are unable to participate in the virtual race, you can still support this campaign by making a monetary donation (simply click on the "donate" tab at the top of the page and follow the prompts). Thank you in advance for your generosity and for helping us celebrate a life so well lived.
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.

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.
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.
