America Runs 5K (AR5K) is a 15-day virtual race event organized by Charity Footprints, Inc. in which Individuals join a non-profit's team to complete a 5k challenge and raise funds for the non-profit.

Free Peer-to-Peer Fundraising: 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. Peer-to-peer fundraising is completely free for the first $1,000. Our standard 4% platform fees + (2.6% + $0.30) credit card transaction fees apply after that.

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.

Non-Profit Application Fee: There is a $50 application fee for non-profits to join this event. Once your team is ready, you can invite staff members, volunteers, fitness enthusiasts or any one else you deem fit to join your team!

Registration Fee: Participants can join your team by paying a $20 registration fee. Out of each registration, non-profit earns $10 in their fundraising account (on WePay).
