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.

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.

How will I track my distance?

After registration, download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.

Please note that you should use the same login credentials that you've used to register for this challenge.
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.
