WHAT IS AMERICA RUNS 5K?
------ x ------
America Runs 5K (AR5K) is a 15-day fitness challenge organized by Charity Footprints, Inc. in which Individuals and Corporations join a non-profit's team to get fit and give back.

Fitness Incentives: Over this 15-day challenge, AR5K participants run, walk and ride anywhere & anytime and track their workouts on our free iOS & Android mobile applications. Charity Footprints donates $2 to the non-profit for each day that a participant tracks at least a 1-mile workout. For example - If a participant finishes at least a 1-mile workout for each day of the challenge, they earn $30 for the non-profit team.

Peer-to-Peer Fundraising: In addition, each AR5K participant gets a personal fundraising page to rally support & raise funds from their friends, family and loved ones. Participants can amplify this support by requesting matching donations from their employers, sharing their workouts on social networks, and engaging with non-profits by volunteering after the challenge is over. Our standard 4% + credit card fee applies.

Swag ‘n More: Each participant who completes at least a 5K (total workout distance over 15 days) receives a beautifully crafted 3" America Runs 5K race medal. Wait, it gets better ... Charity Footprints promotes this campaign to socially responsible companies, whose employees may choose to join your team.

Application Fee: There is a $100 application fee for non-profits to join this challenge. Once your team is ready, you can invite staff members, core volunteers, fitness enthusiasts or any one else you deem fit to join your team! At the same time, we'll try our best to grow your team by reaching out and seeking corporate partnerships.

Break-Even Commitment: It is our commitment that all the participating organizations will at least break even. In the rare case that your team falls short of reaching $100, we'll donate the difference to you. For example – if your team receives $30 from Fitness Incentives and an additional $50 from Peer-to-Peer Fundraising, you’d have raised a total of $80. In this case we’ll donate the remaining $20 to your organization, at the end of the challenge.

Apply Now and join our next #AR5K this September to raise funds and awareness for your cause while inspiring people to #GetFitGiveBack.
