ABOUT BROADWAY THEATRE LEAGUE WALK 2 BROADWAY (AND BACK!) CAMPAIGN

#BTLWalk2NYC

Broadway Theatre League, patrons and the community are getting together to (virtually) walk to Broadway in New York City to bring National Touring Broadway shows back to Huntsville, AL. At a time when we cannot be all together at the theatre, BTL is bringing together patrons, Theatre lovers, and anyone who wants to put steps to the pavement in an effort to restore Broadway performances at the VBC Mark C. Smith Concert Hall in Huntsville, AL.

 

The funds generated for this virtual walk to be used to help ensure that live national touring Broadway shows will once again be seen in Huntsville. Funds will also go to our Student Outreach program and also to present a very special series of performances by Artrageous, March 31 - April 2, 2021.

 

Artrageous is a troupe of multi- talented Live performance artists, world class singers and recording artists, highly trained dancers and audience motivators and veteran musicians hailing from the high desert of New Mexico. Their high energy performance is a combination of all arts on one stage combined with humor and interaction in a frenzy of movement and color. Artrageous has a passion for all things art and community and they bring their message of the arts being an integral and valuable part of human existence to the stage, leaving their audience of all ages singing, dancing and clapping along.

 

The five free performances will be a huge thank you to all the people who have gotten our community through the Covid-19 Pandemic. BTL will invite front line workers, medical professionals and 1st responders to be our special guests for Artrageous. BTL will also have a special performance for students.

 

Please join BTL. Let’s walk to Broadway and bring National touring Broadway shows back to Huntsville, AL in 2021 and beyond. Grab your walking shoes, start walking and let’s make this goal a reality.

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 (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.

How do I join a team on 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. 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.
