This is a challenging time for all of us. Even the strongest of mental capacities struggle with being cooped up for weeks/months on end. This event is an attempt to help lift spirits and provide a sense of purpose, all while observing safe social distancing. Reach out to a friend or loved one today and invite them to participate! You may just be saving a life.
So many companies simply cannot wait out such a shut-down and there are no bailouts prescribed to keep them alive and thriving. ALL proceeds from this event go towards the purchase of gift cards or other direct investment into LOCAL small businesses or non-profits. Perhaps, together, we can provide bail for so many small businesses!
All funds will be distributed to areas in accordance with the proportion of participants from a given area. For example, if 50% of participants live in Houston, 50% of funds will support organizations in Houston specifically. Cities will compete for the percentage of funds. Your funds stay in your home community! Rest assured your money is supporting LOCAL!

Complete your total distance by the deadline (May 31) and SUBMIT RESULTS by clicking on the "EDIT YOUR REGISTRATION" button within the confirmation email. NOTE You'll be required to submit a photo with your submission. Any photo representing something positive will be sufficient. It could be a photo of you running, a selfie, a photo of your dog, or perhaps even a photo of your favorite flower blooming. If the photo sparks positive feelings - it's more than acceptable.
Be proud. And, if for some reason you are unhappy with your time - feel free to attempt for a better time. As long as you submit your best result by May 31, that's the result that will be recorded.
Encourage others in your city to make sure the most money stays in your LOCAL area.
