How to reach 2,500 miles in 12 weeks

Walk, bike, row, or convert other activities (like yoga or yard work) into miles using the My Virtual Mission (MVM) app. “Travel” from Kindness Adventures' Headquarters in Blaine, WA to EPIC Outreach's Headquarters in Jacksonville, FL.

You will work in teams of 6-8 over 12 weeks to collectively achieve a total distance of 2,500 miles. That’s about 4 miles per person/day. We will assign the teams and your team animal (one of the many residents at EPIC Outreach 😊) and notify you before the start.

You will receive an email from Kindness Adventures on July 22nd, 5 days prior to the start, with information about your teammates and your team animal.
