Easy 3D Stretches to Incorporate Into Your Training Routine
Most of us grew up learning static stretches with a prolonged hold: stretch your quad by bending your knee and bringing your foot to your butt. Stretch you hamstrings by bending at the hips and touching your toes.

While any form of stretching is better than not doing it at all, three-dimensional stretches are far more effective in improving flexibility and joint mobility. Why? Active, dynamic...

Join us to send girls to school—and get fit!

It started with one little hash tag and a big dream: Two friends challenged themselves to run their first marathon together, while also fundraising to send 26 girls to school in Nepal in honor of each mile.

Inspired by their journey, which they tracked on social media using #26Miles26Girls, other people began to set new fitness goals tied to a fundraising goal for She's the First. Popular fitness instructors got on board to raise money and endorphins with donation-based classes.

The impact quickly multiplied. The #RUNTHEWORLD campaign was born. Before we knew it, 200+ supporters raised $50,000 to send 60 girls to school. It was the most financially successful campaign in She’s the First history.

In Season Two, which kicks off on February 18, the first day of Social Media Week, we're raising our game and growing an even bigger team to RUN THE WORLD! In unity with our She's the First Scholars, who are running to school and cheering you on, we aim to raise $150,000 together to sponsor girls' education, before the grand finale on November 2nd.

Here's how you can support:

(1) Start a fundraising page. Tell your story, ask friends/family to donate. Raise money by:
  • Challenging yourself to run a race, be it your first, fastest, or funnest (yes, we know that's not a word...but it counts!).
  • Teaming up with a fitness instructor to organize a donation-based fitness fundraising class.

(2) Use CharityMiles! Every mile you walk, run, or bike on the app for She's the First donates a quarter, funded by a corporate sponsor, which we will be count towards the grand total.

Ready? Let's go!
