What is A Virtual Walk or Ride?

Are you familiar with the concept of a charity walk or ride?

It's where a person wants to help a worthy nonprofit cause, they sign up to complete a walk or ride, they get an online fundraising page and set their personal fundraising goal and distance. They send it to family and friends who donate, they walk or bike their goal distance and the money is donated to the charity.

Why are Virtual events like this easier?

  • It can be done anywhere: You can complete the ride or walk anywhere: at home, in your neighborhood, while walking the dog...jump on your Peloton, wherever!
  • It can be completed at any time during the event dates of 6/6-6/21: You can split it up, for example, walking or biking 1 mile a day. You set the goal and your pace!

Once you've completed A Chance to Shine, all you need to do is update your fundraising page so your supporters know you're finished! You're also welcome to take a photo of yourself and post it on your page or send it directly to us for our Virtual Finish Line!
