ABOUT TRI-MERIT4STROKESURVIVORS CAMPAIGN
------ x ------
Tri-Merit4StrokeSurvivors is a fitness challenge for Tri-Merit employees, staff, family members and other stake holders. During this challenge we encourage you to #GetFitGiveBack, and support a wonderful cause in Stroke Survivors Empowering Each Other (SSEEO) - a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Get Fit: We challenge each participant to walk/run at least 1 mile (~2000 steps) each day for 29-days in October. Each participant who finishes their 29-day challenge will automatically be entered into a drawing for a new Apple Watch, Fitbit Versa, or Samsumg Watch Active.

Give Back: Each participant will have access to a personal fundraising page. Although fundraising is not mandatory, but we encourage each participant to share their fundraising page with friends and family members. All monies raised will go directly to SSEEO to help support stroke survivors and their families. Each participant who raises more than $250 will be automatically entered into a drawing for a new Apple Watch, Fitbit Versa, or Samsumg Watch Active.

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?

This campaign is free to participate in.

However, if you would like to donate some money to the Stroke Survivors Empowering Each Other, you can always donate any amount on your fundraising page after registration.

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), 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.

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.
