WHAT IS AMERICA RUNS 5K?
------ x ------
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. We also send invitations to corporations and invite them to join a non-profit team and support their cause.

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.

Registration Fee: Participants can join a non-profit's team by paying a $20 registration fee. Out of each registration, non-profit earns $10.

Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

Anyone! The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to. Ask and thou' shalt get, perhaps :-).

There are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Consider adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal and important to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time you need help. We love hearing from participants so please don't hesitate to write to us about any issues you are facing, any suggestions you have, or just to say hi.

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
