ABOUT STEP TOWARD A CURE AND STEP ON CANCER! CAMPAIGN
------ x ------
The word cancer imposes a level of fear in all of us, and for good reason, cancer is merciless. Cancer even targets the most innocent...children. In fact cancer is diagnosed in nearly 16,000 children each year. It’s time for us to end the attack on our children, our siblings, our friends and fight back. This Summer the TEAM CAMPBELL FOUNDATION wants to team-up with you to STEP TOWARD A CURE AND STEP ON CANCER!
We at the Team Campbell Foundation ask you to join us this Summer as we walk, run, bike, row, skip, dance .... just move to help those who have been impacted by Childhood Cancer.
Each of us will move 46 miles over the next 8 weeks - 1 mile for each child diagnosed with cancer today while raising a minimum of $100. *Reach this fundraising level and receive a Team Campbell swag package.*
Share your campaign with friends and family. Get them to donate to your effort or join you fundraising for Team Campbell Foundation and help families impacted by Childhood Cancer.
Why we need your help:
Each school day 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer, 7 of these children will not survive.
Did you know...
- the federal government only spends 4% of it's cancer research budget on childhood cancer research?
- there have only been THREE new drugs created in the last four decades specifically to treat Childhood Cancers.
- the average out of pocket cost of treatment can range anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars.
Together we can make a difference. Together we can find a cure. Together we can help put a smile on these kids’ faces.
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. 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.
