Let's Get Moving With The Arc Livingston!

The Arc Livingston wants to help our entire community to get moving, since being physically active helps everyone to be healthier, not only physically, but mentally, too! Did you know people with disabilities are twice as likely to be at risk of not getting enough exercise? With our virtual run/walk/roll, our community members can work together, from afar, for six weeks and log enough miles to reach the North Pole!

Registration for the 6-week event is open to all and everyone that registers will have the option to download the app and link to their Fitbit or Apple watch. Miles may also be logged in via the Charity Footprints website

The event fee is $25 and all registrants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and a race medal!

If you are an Arc Livingston Member you can register for free!

Those who donate $100 as an Empowerment Partner will get an event medal and recognition on the Get Moving With The Arc web page. www.arclivingston.org/getmoving

Participants are encouraged to raise additional donations for The Arc Livingston. A prize will be given to the participant that raises the highest amount in donations.

Prizes for moving (rolling, walking or running) the most miles will be given in each age category.

How Your Participation Helps
Funds raised will be used to provide advocacy support to children with disabilities and adults with developmental disabilities and their families in Livingston County,
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 (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, Google Fit, Misfit, Strava), 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.
