The EBF3 HADDS Foundation invites you to join us for our 4th Annual International HADDS In Motion Virtual Fun Run!


HADDS In Motion is a month-long movement and fundraising challenge, October 1st - October 31st, to raise awareness and support the individual(s) in your community living with HADDS. You can start a team, join a team, register individually, or donate if you prefer not to race. We encourage each participant to complete a 5k, Half Marathon or Full Marathon or whatever distance is possible to encourage support. It doesn't matter if you run, walk or roll your way to the finish line; any way you choose to do it is a sign of solidarity and compassion for those living with HADDS.


What is a virtual run?

You can participate anywhere! You organize the when and where in your community, but together we will all rally around HADDS Awareness globally. You choose the meeting location, start time, and fundraising goal (if desired). Earn badges as you and/or your team progress through the fundraising and fitness milestone tiers. There will also be prizes for the longest distance, best costume (Halloween Week), most HADDS plaid, and highest fundraising team/individual.

Our Foundation's mission is to advance HADDS research, support families, share educational resources, and raise awareness for our HADDS community. All funds raised during this campaign will go directly to support global HADDS research, education & community.
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.
