For the last few weeks, we’ve all been part of the #HOMETEAM, working and working out from home to help keep our communities safe. Meanwhile, medical staff, grocery store clerks, transportation employees, and many essential workers have been on the frontlines risking their health and safety to keep our communities running. During the #HOMETEAMHERO Challenge, we’re showing them our gratitude with a donation relay. From May 29 – June 7, every active hour you spend on qualifying activities in the adidas Running or adidas Training apps will help us toward our goal of completing 1 million workout hours. For every hour contributed, adidas will donate $1 to the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund (up to an additional $1 million).
Fitness enthusiasts and athletes from every discipline are coming together to dedicate their time and effort to say thank you to our #HOMETEAM Heroes.

Whether you run, cycle, or strength train, there are many types of fitness you can do to get involved in this donation relay. Check out the list of qualifying activities in the challenge information, and please be sure to always follow local guidelines with social distancing.
