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 minute’s matter, regardless of sport, discipline, ability level or current stage of lockdown.

Manish Sapra, Senior Marketing Director at adidas, said, “It 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.”

This challenge is the latest in adidas’ collaboration-orientated response to keep its communities healthy, active and connected as the world begins to transition into what’s next. Giving an opportunity to people to lace up, contribute and support the front liners by making every minute count.
