ABOUT CANCER CAREGIVERS AZ'S "GIVING THANKS FOR CAREGIVERS" VIRTUAL 5K FUN RUN & WALK CAMPAIGN
WWW.CANCERCAREGIVERSAZ.COM&WWW.AZMYELOMANETWORK.ORG
 
Fact: Cancer is a Family Disease!

The Problem:
There are 38,000 new cancer patients diagnosed each year in Arizona. That means, that there are at least ‘3’ people who will be affected – at home and in the workplace. And, at least 1 person or family member who will become the primary Cancer CareGiver! A role that most of us are not prepared or ‘trained’ for. We are not even counting the thousands of ‘cancer survivors’ and their caregivers who are ‘out there’ already and need our help also!
 
It is estimated that there would be 1,806,590 newly diagnosed cancer patients in the United States in 2020, with 36,730 of them in Arizona alone. For every one of those new cancer patients diagnosed there will be at least one (1) new primary cancer caregiver to care for that patient. THAT'S ALMOST 37K NEW CANCER CAREGIVERS IN JUST ARIZONA! New Caregivers in desperate need of resources and support that we can help provide!
 
 
Why Focus on Cancer Caregivers?
“Family caregivers have been ‘silent partners’ in health care delivery, functioning as de facto care coordinators. During care handoffs, family caregivers make important contributions to ensuring quality, safety, and adherence to patient preferences; their role needs to be formally recognized and supported.” (Source: Coleman & Williams, Journal of Hospital Medicine, Sept/Oct 2007)

How Your Participation Helps
We have developed and delivered effective programs that support Cancer Caregivers, the Cancer Patients, and their Families. We are planning a major initiative that will take our Cancer Caregiver Education Program, CCEP™ “Virtual” in 2021. With your help we will be able to reach across the State of Arizona, and across the nation, in every community, to meet the needs of our Cancer Caregivers, and their families.

Our Vision is to continue to build a network of support and resources for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. We want to increase knowledge about cancer research through community cancer awareness programs and seminars. We have and continue to encourage stronger cancer patient advocacy through training and education. We provide culturally appropriate cancer information and outreach to the under-served. We hope to develop a collaboration of cancer patients, science, business and the community to support cancer research, and improve cancer treatment for all.

Through our Cancer Caregivers Education Program, CCEP™, we provide the most up to date information on Caregiving for Cancer Patients through symposiums, workshops and meetings open to all FREE of charge.
We help others to find informative resources to learn about Cancer and how it is treated. We identify resources that provide more information on clinical trials and research progress and present that to caregivers and patients.

By spreading awareness we are alerting patients to local support groups, specialist doctors and medical facilities with specialized Cancer experience. We provide local guidance, training and information to support groups throughout Arizona. We bring more awareness of the growing Cancer diagnosis and demands of the Cancer Caregivers to Arizona residents though outreach. We emphasize the importance creating awareness of early detection and Cancer diagnosis in the African-American, Hispanic and Native American populations of Arizona (which in many circumstances may have little to no resources available to them).

Through advocacy we are the liaison with other national and local organizations focused on all forms of cancer. We provide state and local government departments with information about Cancer CareGivers AZ & AzMN’s activities to gain their support and assistance where appropriate and applicable.

All funds raised go to funding the CCAZ Cancer Caregivers Education Program, CCEP™ and providing resources and support to Arizona cancer patients, families, and caregivers.

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.
