Grab your sneakers and join us during our 2nd annual Aim For Change virtual walk, run, or cycle to help raise $40,000 for Creative Life Foundation's critical work in Thailand.
We've made this year's event with you in mind. All you need to do is choose your distance, connect your favorite wearable tracker, and collect donations along the way. Participants will have from July 15th thru August 31st to reach their goals. It's FREE to join, but consider purchasing a shirt* to wear before or after the event from our online store: www.creativelifefoundation.com/shop
*With you and the environment in mind, we figured, why send you an event shirt that may never get worn? Now, you can purchase a shirt, bag, or mug of your liking for you or a friend.
Is walking, running, or cycling not how you stay active? No problem! Refer to our Activity to Steps Conversion Chart below. If you don't see your favorite activity, simply use it as a guide -we trust you to use your discretion!
This event is our BIG fundraiser of the year, and reaching our goal is crucial for the sustainability and growth of our programs. Together we can continue breaking cycles of poverty and exploitation. Click on the "Register Now" button to get started! Freedom is just a step away!

How Your Participation Helps
All proceeds from this event will go towards Creative Life Foundation's programs that create access to education and a path to citizenship and provide holistic care.
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.
