POTS Virtual Race

Join the POTS Junior Board for the 2nd Annual Virtually Race for a Cause! Beginning on September 28th, you can compete to race more than 500 miles around the perimeter of the Bronx from anywhere in the World. 

In order to participate, racers complete any form of exercise and then log their activity on the challenge’s website. Participants can then check on their team’s real progress through the Bronx with a bird’s-eye view of the course. The website also includes useful guidelines and best practices for using the platform and participating in the race.

In addition to the many benefits of exercise and healthy competition, contributions to the race will directly benefit POTS in its operations, helping us provide food security, wellness services, and long-term support for our clients. 

We used Racery’s virtual race platform to power our event. Racery makes it simple to launch corporate step challenges, and recently created a secret word game for virtual teams.

The race will begin at midnight, 12:00am EST, on September 28th, and finish just before midnight, 11:59pm EST, on October 12th. That’s just 14 days to cover 500 miles! Sign up here and help us go the distance.
