Running to Give Back!

What feels better than a good run? A good run that earns money for programs designed to get people moving!

‘Tis the season for spreading the cheer and in celebration of the longest night of the year (12/21), Nike is motivating people all over to get out, be active and give back to others! Through the Nike 12.21 Flashrun initiative, you can help donate money to one of 10 designed-to-move organizations without spending a dime. The only requirement – your sweat equity!

Participating is easy! Follow these simple steps to join the 12/21 movement:

1. Nike +. Get Nike+ to track, share and compare your movement. You can use the Nike+ Running app, Nike+ FuelBand or Nike+ Sportwatch GPS.

2. Dedicate. Anytime between 12.17 and 12.21, click on the program that you’d like to support. Pledge your 12.21 Nike+ activity to that program’s FitCause page. For a complete list of participating charities, visit nike.com.

3. Get Moving & Sync. On 12.21 use the Nike+ Running app, Nike+ FuelBand or Nike+ Sportwatch GPS to move. Moving earns you NikeFuel. The more NikeFuel you earn, the more powerful your pledge.

Moving earns you NikeFuel. The more NikeFuel you earn, the more powerful your pledge to one of the 10 programs. Based on the amount of NikeFuel that you and the rest of the community dedicate and earn during the campaign, an additional $100,000 will be split among the top three programs.
