This is a continuation of our efforts to reach 1,000,000 miles to help fight injustices in our communities. Because of your support in the beginning, we were able to reach 302,306 miles and donate more than $187,000 to the NAACP!

We would like to invite each of you to register and join us as we launch Phase 2! We have committed to donating a portion of race proceeds to support the Children's Defense Fund, a national child advocacy organization that works to uplift all children, especially poor children and children of color. We are counting on you to make Phase 2 a huge success.

To show our appreciation, we're offering all returning members $10 off registration until September 15, 2020. Click here to register and use coupon code RETURNPHASE2 during checkout to receive this discount.
