Engage Donors With a Virtual Challenge

Virtual challenges are trending. Every day more non-profits around the world are searching for the perfect virtual challenge platform to launch their own challenge as a way to bring their community together to engage with each other as they complete wellbeing activities.

Benefits to Participants

Wherever they want

Participants can complete their challenge activities in their hometown, on the beach, on a treadmill, in the woods, or wherever else they choose. This increases the accessibility for the challenge to everyone with an internet connection.

Whenever they want

Participants can run at the time that best suits them! Hate waking up early for a run? Awesome, they can run in the afternoon. Sunday is their favorite day to unwind? Perfect, they can get their mindful activities done when they choose!

Benefits for nonprofits

Limited operational costs

Organizing a physical event requires city permits, dozens of volunteers, and more! It’s a lot of work! Doing virtual challenges makes your life a lot easier. Focus on marketing and creating an amazing experience for your participants rather than fighting with city officials and paying for permits for everything.

Reach unlimited amount of people

The virtual world is not limited to space — you can reach thousands of people around the world. For example, create a “run around the world” challenge to engage thousands of supporters around your mission! By using a virtual challenge platform like atlasGO, your possibilities are endless.

Get more people involved with extra activities

Some people like to bike, swim, meditate, read, do yoga, or even ski! By offering several activities, you can increase the number of participants and also donations towards your cause.

Accessibility and flexibility

There is beauty in bringing people physically together. 45,000 people running a Marathon the same day in the same city is extraordinary. NYCBrussels, Mumbai, Boston, London. These races create a sense of belonging and community that is difficult to replicate in the virtual world. But, physical challenges are not accessible to everyone and don’t happen every day.

The virtual component is not replacing physical events but is simply offering another option. Virtual challenges are here to stay as they have proven how effective they can be. Adding a virtual component increases the accessibility and flexibility, and by choosing the best virtual challenge platform for your non-profit, you can expand your message even more.
