We are excited to invite you and your church to participate in J-Life Africa's first virtual walk/run fundraiser! All event registration fees, and funds raised above this, will be used in supporting the expenses of indigenous J-Life Country leaders, who train pastors and leaders in disciple-making on the ground in Africa, as well as the costs of pioneering into new areas across Africa.
J-Life Africa exists to train and equip Pastors, Youth Pastors and church leaders in disciple making. We do training, coaching and mentoring of the leaders in order to help them implement a strategy through their local church. To help them implement a disciple making strategy in their local church. Our vision for the next 10 year is to see 2000 leaders who are living disciple making and can show their personal disciples to the 4th Generation.
A trained leader has at least 4 th generation disciples (4 th generation is when 1 person (Mike) disciples someone (Jim), who disciples someone else (Peter), who disciples someone else (Ed) and 3rd level transformation. Here is an explanation of the 3 levels of transformation. Level 1 - Personal Transformation is see in how they are multiplying disciple makers and how they are committed to and own disciple making personally 2nd Level of transformation is see when the key leader has reformed how their organization does ministry and other leaders have joined in the process of producing disciples that make disciples through the organization Level 3 transformation is when their churches/organizations are seen their people impacting in every sphere of life as they live the character and priorities of Jesus - this is Community transformation. We currently have 352 - 4 th generation and 3rd level transformation leaders. Praise the Lord!
We not only want to see evidence of their multiplication but that they have influenced transformation. As they are personally transformed to not only be like Jesus but do what Jesus does they now influence transformation across their organisation so that the church is producing disciples that make disciples in every sphere of the community around them.
The J-Life 2030 Vision is to be in 40 Countries across Africa, with 2000 trained leaders in 200 gateway (key) Cities across Africa.

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?
