Join us for the first annual Math Medic Foundation Pi Day Pi K! Please note, the deadline to register for this event is February 29th, so register now!
Immediately after registration, participants may connect a fitness tracker (if they’d like to), and complete their 3.14 km. The Math Medic Foundation team will complete our Pi K at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids at 6:30 pm on March 14th. We encourage participants to join us there if they’d like to or hold their own live event on Pi Day (we’ll help to message your live event, just let us know the details by emailing to contact@mathmedicfoundation.org).
Every registrant will receive an event t-shirt and the first 314 registrants will receive a finisher's medal sent to them in the mail (see this year’s event design below). And, the participant who raises the most money in the peer-to-peer campaign will receive exclusive access to Luke Wilcox and Lindsey Gallas for a virtual coffee meet and greet as well as a Math Medic swag bag!
Too busy to run/walk on March 14th? Don’t worry! Since this is a virtual event, feel free to complete your run or walk when you’re able, either before or after March 14th (we’ll continue collecting participant distances until March 21st).
We’d like to thank our sponsors for this event, who have helped make this Pi Day Pi K possible. Thank you to Steelcase Foundation, NumWorks, and Math Medic. Thank you for your support!

Because we were able to cover all the event costs through our generous sponsors, Steelcase Foundation, NumWorks, and Math Medic, 100% of funds collected will go directly to students, teachers, and schools in need of math resources.
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.

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.
