We’re In This Together: Meet The Partners of the #HOMETEAMHERO Challenge

During the #HOMETEAMHERO Challenge, every active minute counts to help collect 1 million workout hours for our donation relay. Whether you do five chaturangas, 100 pushups, or run a 5k, your effort can help raise money for the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund in honor of the heroes who are keeping our communities running. 

We are all united in this mission, which is why there is a pretty impressive roster of partner apps you can use to help complete the challenge. Qualifying activities done with Suunto, Polar, Garmin, and Zwift will also count toward our 1 million active hours. You can also contribute using your adidas GMR and Joyrun accounts.
