MoveFTT Returning in 2022!

Hello Repeat and potential Movers! We are very excited to be bringing back MoveFTT in 2022.

Details coming soon. Be sure to join our listserv to be the first to know about registration! (We don't send a lot of emails, we promise).


CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS for moving and shaking for 35 days!!!

While we focus on making the Care for the Caregivers Impact Program the best it can be, we are pausing on MoveFTT Challenges but it will be back and better in 2022!

Click below to see the results, impact and footprint of your participation in the Spring 2021 MoveFTT Challenge.

How It Works:

Sign up as a TEAM or INDIVIDUAL

4-10 participants per team; each team member must register separately

*Earn $1 back for everyday you move your mile. See below for more details

We like to call this a "reverse" fundraiser. First priority is awareness.

  • Challenge yourself to move at least one mile a day for 35 consecutive days (5 weeks).
  • Pay $5 Entry Fee + $35 deposit up front.
  • Earn $1 back for every day you move at least a mile. Every mile missed is a $1 donation.

Let's move together for our loved ones and ourselves.

Challenge yourself to move everyday for 35 days.

MOVE For Their Thoughts

MOVE For Your Thoughts

  • In honor or memory of our loved ones impacted by dementia.   
  • For your own brain health

Studies show that people who are physically active can decrease their stress and are less likely to experience a decline in their mental function. So let's create a community and move together for 35 days.

GOAL

Our goal is to move around the world as a community while bringing awareness to dementia and the importance of brain health. Proceeds will go toward increasing awareness and providing relief for family caregivers taking care of their loved ones with dementia.

IMPACT

  1. Promoting brain and physical health
  2. Raising awareness and understanding for the dementia community
  3. Raising funds to help families caring for their loved ones with dementia TODAY.

Proceeds go to our “Care for the Caregivers” Relief Program: a one-time grant to bring financial and emotional relief to families caring for their loved ones with dementia as they go through what may be the hardest time in their life.  See the MoveFTT 3.0 Impact and Results here.
