ABOUT DO GOOD, FEEL GOOD CAMPAIGN

2021 Community Health Challenge

6 Weeks to Make a Difference in Yourself and In Your Community. You'll be challenged to move more for improved physical health while also being challenged to do more for your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.

In addition, you’ll be invited to do good by raising funds for our Cancer Center to provide new chemotherapy chairs for our patients. All Do Good, Feel Good fundraising gifts will go directly toward the Chemo Chair Project to ensure patients continue to receive treatment in a comfortable setting by putting some love & life back into the currently well-worn treatment chairs.

Sign Up Today! We can't wait to see how much better we'll all feel after a few weeks of focused effort at doing good for ourselves and others.

How Your Participation Helps
You're invited to do more good by raising funds for our Cancer Center to provide new chemotherapy chairs for our patients. All Do Good, Feel Good fundraising gifts given to the LRH Foundation will go directly toward the Chemo Chair Project to ensure patients continue to receive treatment in a comfortable setting by putting some love & life back into the currently well-worn treatment chairs.

There is no charge to participate in our challenge and donating is not an expectation. As part of the Charity Footprints platform we are using, and in alignment with the "Do Good for Others" portion of our challenge, the opportunity to support the Lake Region Healthcare Foundation is built into this challenge website.

It is thanks to the support from Lake Region Healthcare Foundation that the annual Community Health Challenge started in 2014 and was able to continue to grow through the years. Now it's our opportunity to show the Foundation our thanks & appreciation for their support!

Funds donated to the Lake Region Healthcare Foundation help support its mission to gather, steward and distribute resources needed to support and advance the mission of Lake Region Healthcare and its affiliates: to help improve the health of people in our region.

"In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us." –Flora Edwards
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?

This campaign is free to participate in.

However, we encourage you to donate optional/suggested amount during registration or you can always donate any amount on your fundraising page after the registration.

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.
