As we approach Genome Medical's 7th anniversary, we are overflowing with appreciation for all of you who have helped us expand and enhance Genome Medical and genetics care more broadly. In keeping with our focus on mental and physical health, we have incorporated both in our celebratory event, hosted through Charity Footprints. Through our healthy competition we will also be giving back! In teams and as an organization, our investments in our mental and physical health will help raise funds to benefit the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD).
We appreciate YOU, the whole you, and look forward to healthy competition over the next few weeks that will benefit all of us and a great cause. If we as a company, as individuals and as teams, hit our goals, Genome Medical will donate up to $5,000 in our team’s honor to NORD.

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.

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.

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.
