Adidas, the sportswear brand, has announced the #HomeTeamHero Challenge â a virtual sporting event for the worldâs athletes to unite and help make a difference by dedicating their workouts for good.
Running globally from May 29-June 7, for every hour of tracked activity, adidas will donate $1 to the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation (WHO), with the goal of reaching one million hours.
Bringing together its global community of athletes to take part, the challenge is enabled by the collaboration between multiple activity tracking apps, including Garmin, Zwift, Polar, Suunto, JoyRunand adidasâ own suite of performance platforms â adidas Running and adidas Training â which will also house an extended selection of guided workouts led by top athletes such as cricketer Rohit Sharma, sprinter Hima Das and boxers Nikhat Zareen and Simranjit Kaur.
The result of this collective effort is the creation of a global digital sports event, where everyone is invited to participate to help reach the one-million-hour goal, making all minuteâs matter, regardless of sport, discipline, ability level or current stage of lockdown.
Manish Sapra, Senior Marketing Director at adidas, said, âIt is our endeavour to provide tangible ways for consumers to keep active and engaged during these testing times. Regardless of circumstance, what unites us all is our drive to do good, feel connected to each other as one team and most importantly, to say thank you to the essential workers who were there for us in a time of need. This is our chance to be there for those who kept us moving.â
This challenge is the latest in adidasâ collaboration-orientated response to keep its communities healthy, active and connected as the world begins to transition into whatâs next. Giving an opportunity to people to lace up, contribute and support the front liners by making every minute count.
