IFM distributes over 100,000 bags of food yearly to local families experiencing hardship. Traditionally, IFM provides holiday groceries to over 1,000 families (750 children and 2,200 adults each holiday). Approximately $43,000 is needed to purchase turkeys (for families of 3 or more) whole chickens (for families of 1 or 2), yams, onions, fresh vegetables, canned green beans, margarine, gravy and stuffing. In addition, we provide about 75 small canned hams to our homeless clients each holiday. For planning purposes we buy for 1,250 families to insure we have enough food. 100% of proceeds from the Hunger Run will go to IFM’s Holiday Food Program.
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.
How will I track my distance?
You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Apple Watch), or 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 email@example.com and we will switch your team.
