The Wellness Tree Community Clinic is launching this unique campaign to help us raise funds for our important work of providing care to our community members who do not have health benefits. We rely on the generosity of organizations and individuals to help us with this work. We wanted to find a way to bring people together without physically bringing them together during this crazy time of social distancing. This campaign allows individuals to use all kinds of movement over the course of 6 weeks to complete 73 miles. You can walk, run, bike, swim, do yoga or any other physical activity. If you already use an activity tracking device it will integrate for you and you can even compete against friends and family. We can't think of a better way to give back to your community while getting up and moving.
Moving for the Tree Race Competitions
In addition to racing against coworkers, family and friends, participants can work to complete the challenges built into the campaign. Being successful at completing one of these will not just give you bragging rights, but some fantastic prizes too!
Fastest Movers - First 5 people to complete 73 miles
Fastest Talkers – Top 5 Peer-to-Peer Fundraisers
Middle Branch – First to complete half the challenge - 36.5 miles
Longest Streak – Most sequential days logging activities
Longest Branch – Most miles completed in a 24 hour period
Social Butterfly – Most uses of the campaign hashtag #moving4thetree
Independent Branch – Most unique activity logged
Prizes include: Glanbia Nutritional Basket, Cliff Bar Basket, Powder Mountain Ski Lift Passes and More!
Not a runner? No problem! Here is a chart to convert your activities into steps:
*Example: If you do 30 minutes of Spinning - you would do 30 x 200 (steps) = 6,000 steps
Track workouts anywhere & anytime and complete goal.

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.
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.
