Miles4SmilesOK is a “virtual race to 5K” to connect Oklahomans in health and in the mission of MobileSmiles Oklahoma! MobileSmiles is a dental care program of the Oklahoma Dental Foundation dedicated to building partnerships to improve and advance oral healthcare in Oklahoma. With the vital help of volunteer dental professionals, our program utilizes two RV-style mobile dental units that travel across the entire state of Oklahoma delivering free dental care and education.
We invite you to partner with us as we walk MILES4SMILES around Oklahoma! Your contributions will enable us to travel to all corners of the state providing needed care to Oklahomans.
Unlike a traditional race, Miles4SmilesOK takes place where you are and when you want, any time between February 7 and April 4, 2020. (And you don’t have to run anywhere if that’s not your thing!)
Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to take part or sponsor you. Set a goal to run, walk, skip or dance “around Oklahoma”, or just reach out to friends and track your progress online. With every step we’ll be helping send MobileSmiles to another community.
Our goal is to connect with Oklahomans around the state and raise $20,000. (Your gift goes directly toward the Mobile Smiles program!)
Thank you for joining our mission, together let’s walk to all corners of Oklahoma, “walking miles fo MobileSmiles”!

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.
