We're challenging our community to walk 50 miles in 50 days to help combat child hunger in our community. You can GET FIT and FEED KIDS at the same time!
Since our approval as a 501(c)(3) organization two and a half years ago, we have grown exponentially. During the 2017-2018 school year, Peach’s Pantry, Inc. worked closely with 17 schools to distribute a total of 3105 individual bags and 2167 family bags which feeds 2-4 children. All bags are provided free of charge and are given to students at the area schools identified by school personnel as being at risk for hunger. During the first half of this school year, growth has continued. While we have not added any additional schools, as the program grows in awareness among new campus populations, we are seeing associated growth among our current school partners. We currently feed approximately 450 children per week.
Register for the challenge and challenge your friends, coworkers or family members to help raise funds to combat child hunger! Every $100 raised feeds 25 children for the weekend.
The challenge begins March 15 and ends on May 4th. We'll see you at the West End Fair! We'll have a booth set up where we will be congratulating challengers and handing out medals to those who completed the challenge!
Every $100 raised provides weekend food to 25 children for the weekend. We now provide food bags to approximately 450 children every week. With your help we can keep this program going for the children of Sierra Vista, Palominas, Huachuca City and Tombstone!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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?

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.
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 have already joined a team, we do not allow switching of team as team's reports data is dependent on team's composition and changing team may affect a team's performance.
If you still want to change your team (like if you joined a team by mistake) or create your own team, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will switch your team.
