Strides Against Hunger was designed as a fun way to engage employees in friendly competition while raising money to end hunger and poverty. Through this program, we hope you challenge yourself to exercise more while you and your coworkers make a positive impact for families around the world through your fundraising.
Check your email to see which team you’re on, and then head over to the How it Works page to get instructions on connecting your devices that will track your miles and creating a fundraising page!
Strides Against Hunger takes place over a 4- to 6-week period, depending on team and company size.The more you move the faster you’ll travel through Heifer projects around the world!
Your internal captain will design the teams, likely based on your department or location, and communicate it to all employees. If you have questions on team organization, please contact ###.
Teams will compete to see who can reach the end of the map quickest and will also compete to see who can raise the most money. Visit the community dashboard to see both individual and team leaders!
Your fundraising page is where you can keep others updated on your progress and where people can donate toward your goal of helping communities around the world.
Personalized fundraising pages are always the most successful. You can add your photo, personalized messaging, progress updates and more.
Social media is a great way to raise funds (and awareness). Share your fundraising page with your family, colleagues, loved ones and friends. To begin sharing, visit your supporter page and click the blue "Share" button. You can choose to share your page via Facebook, Twitter or email.
MapMyFitness and Strava are a training apps that track and record your distance. Everydayhero has partnered with MapMyFitness and Strava, which means you can link your fundraising page to both and your page will update every time you complete a run or ride. That way your supporters can see how you’re progressing toward your goal. Fundraisers who use this feature raise an average of 46 percent more! For more help visit here.
Any miles you complete using linked ﬁtness apps will automatically be updated on your fundraising page. If you complete miles outside of these apps, you can manually update your fundraising page. Just remember – don’t manually log any miles you use a linked ﬁtness app to track – we will already have those logged.
