JANUARY 1 - 23, 2021



Join us in supporting and bringing transformation to communities and countries through John & Rob's Change Your World content and platform that will walk us through a transformational process.
The process begins with an emphasis on learning and taking action around universal values that are foundational to transformation and then moves to connect individuals with others who are passionate about a common cause. We will then provide tools to identify a need around them and figure out what steps they can take to make a difference right where they are.
It’s time to stop pointing out the problems all around us and to step up and do something positive to make our world better and brighter. Together we can change our world!


Your registration is your donation. Once you click REGISTER, you will need to create your Participant Account in order to proceed. When you create your account, you will be able to choose how you want to participate and register for the event.



Walk, run, bike… one mile or more per day, from the convenience of your own neighborhood, January 1-23. Then on January 23, we’ll celebrate with a live stream of a 5K walk with John.


Track your steps with your fit bit or other app and share your progress on social media.


Participate virtually January 1-22, AND join John LIVE and in-person in Palm Beach, Florida on January 23, 2021 for the last 5K of the Transform-a-Thon. We’ll email details upon registration.

All funds raised will go directly to pay for the materials and tools used in the Change Your World transformational process.
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.
