How does it work?
Over the next four weeks your team has the opportunity to raise up to $250 for charity, simply by getting active. For every 1000 exercise points the team scores, Hinge Health will donate $10 to your chosen charity. Each member of the team can contribute up to their weekly exercise points goal, so if you have a weekly target of 700 points, you are able to contribute $7 in a given week, or $28 over the course of the challenge.
Your coach will keep you updated on a roughly daily basis with the team's current point total and how much money is in the bag.
Remember, with every 1000 points the team scores, it's an extra $10, so every little helps.
What charity does the money go to?
At Hinge Health we see ourselves as part of a global effort to combat arthritis and chronic pain, while at BVSD you work hard to give kids the best possible start in life. Therefore, we give you the option to chose from two great charities doing work in these areas. As a team, you'll vote for the charity you'd like to support and all the money raised will go directly to them. Currently, the charities we are working with are:
The Arthritis Foundation: The Arthritis Foundation helps provide access to information and care for people living with arthritis and funds scientific research into discovering more about the condition and how it may be prevented. The Arthritis Foundation also provides support to sufferers and carers of those with juvenile arthritis, a condition that affects around 300,000 children in the US.
Teach for America: The second charity you have the opportunity to donate to is Teach for America. This well-known charity works to ensure that all kids receive a good education, regardless of their background. As such, they work with children from disadvantaged communities to improve their opportunities in life, through the power of education.
