PLANO, TEXAS (PRWEB) APRIL 22, 2020
Stack Sports, the largest and fastest-growing global provider of sports technology, announced today that it is launching Miles 4 My Community, a nationwide virtual race, to show support and raise money for youth sports as well as groups impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
This unique virtual race is an opportunity to help us all stay active in these uncertain times while supporting our non-profit partners. We welcome runners, walkers, joggers, bikers, skateboarders, roller skaters, scooters, hula hoopers and other creative ways to come together as a virtual community to log some miles and give back to those in need. Get Active. Save Sports. Support Heroes.
Proceeds will benefit youth sports organizations through GoodSports.org, frontline workers through the American Red Cross, and our communities through The Salvation Army.
“We are thrilled to host Miles 4 My Community and be able to do our part to give back to those in need during these unusual times. Our goal is to get 100,000 people getting active, supporting youth sports, and contributing charitable donations to our non-profit partners,” said Jeff Brunsberg, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer at Stack Sports. “This is our chance to join together virtually and meet this moment to truly make a difference.”
All ages are welcome to participate beginning now through May 9, 2020, to log 1 mile or 26.2 at your own pace, wherever you like. The choice is up to you. Above all else, we encourage you to follow local ordinances and federal guidelines and find creative ways to participate while social distancing and staying safe. Geoff Smith the 2 time Boston Marathon winner has already challenged runners to get involved.
“Its Boston Marathon week and I know how hard runners have trained because I have been there,” said Geoff Smith 2 time Boston Marathon winner. “What can you do? I know what I am going to do. I am going to run miles 4 my community.”
Let’s Hope Together, Run Alone to make an impact for our communities and youth sports. To learn more or to register, visit miles4mycommunity.org. #Miles4MyCommunity
