Join Pacific Pride Foundation for a six-week campaign to honor National Pride Month, and raise funds for Pacific Pride Foundations' Summer of Pride. Let's add some color and celebration into a world that currently feels so gray and isolated, in light of the COVID-19 crisis. While we won't be together for the Pacific Pride Festival this year, we can all move together with color and celebrate the vibrant LGBTQ+ community
We challenge you to travel 44 miles to celebrate Pacific Pride Foundation's 44 years of service to the community, all while raising funds for your local LGBTQ+ Center. That's just under two miles of movement per day, and you can use an Apple Watch, FitBit, Google Fit, Garmin, Misfit, Strava or cell phone to track your progress along the way. Participate by walking, running, biking, rolling, dancing, or swimming...get there any way that works for you! Every registrant will receive a free rainbow bandanna, to keep safe as you Move with Color. A big thank you to Marilyn Makepeace for being our Move with Color sponsor!
Grab your smart tracker and set your goal. Ask friends, family, co-workers and social media followers to sponsor you so you can be part of the solution during this time of isolation. They can track your progress along the way and help you stay motivated as you give back to your local LGBTQ+ and HIV-impacted communities. Reach your goal and celebrate Pride season by giving back to your local center!
We recognize that these are trying times, and hope that as you Move with Color that you'll feel a sense of community as you give back to those in need. Give yourself a reason to get outside, dance to your favorite music, and show your Pride every day - for a good cause. We are all in this together - Happy Pride!
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
PACIFIC PRIDE FOUNDATION INC.

As Pacific Pride Foundation looks ahead at how we continue to reach the 10,000 people we serve each year, we realize we can’t do it alone - especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis and today’s financial uncertainty.
Donations made through the Move with Color Campaign will help Pacific Pride Foundation serve the 10,000 people reached each year services like: crucial harm reduction, anti-bullying, suicide prevention, and opioid crisis response programming.
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?
