The Charity Miles Champion this week is actually two TRIBES of people. The November Project’s San Diego and Washington DC have logged a combined 24,015 Charity Miles. All while motivating team members to stay healthy and active. Here’s their story.
“November Project™ is a FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way to stay in shape during cold New England months. Now present in multiple cities across four time zones in North America, the movement is using a simple sense of accountability (verbal) to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving. Our members vary from Olympic medalists, professional athletes, marathoners, triathletes, and current and former collegiate athletes all the way to complete fitness rookies and recent couch potatoes just looking to kickstart their healthy life choices. If you think that you’re not fit enough to join the group, stop thinking and come see what the fuss is all about.
How can you join? Simple… Just show up!” -November Projects website
November Project is all over the country and the tribe in San Diego, which I’m a member of, had a competition with the tribe from Washington DC to see who could get the most miles running, cycling, and walking in the month of May. We tracked our miles by making teams in the Charity Miles app, one for San Diego and one for Washington DC. During the month both tribes raised money for Team RWB. The top male and female from each tribe won a TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio Watch, and the tribe with the most miles won bragging rights. The Washington DC tribe crushed us (the San Diego Team). It’s all good though since we had fun doing it, and it raised money for a great charity, that has a lot of members come to November Project workouts.
The tribe in San Diego is led by three selfless people who give up a lot of their time and energy to make the November Project so great: Lauren Padula, Ashleigh Voychick, and Angelo Neroni. They come up with the workouts, encourage people who come out, and will beast any challenge put in front of them. These are awesome people who have helped start an incredible thing in San Diego.
I think almost everyone had fun with the competition. It’s a great concept, and I look forward to seeing where it goes.
Thanks, November Project San Diego and Washington DC for getting people moving and logging miles for Team RWB. #everymilematters #charitymiles
