The Stride Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients and their families through a combination of fundraising and fitness challenges.

Our organization offers opportunities for individuals to make a meaningful impact. Volunteers are encouraged to participate in programs tailored to the specific needs of families, contingent on their geographical location. Additionally, we extend an invitation to those who wish to contribute to our mission by harnessing the power of fundraising through our dedicated platform, Pledge It. By engaging in active challenges, both individuals and teams have the chance not only to test their physical limits but also to participate in purpose-driven training and racing.

We have seamlessly integrated our fundraising platform with Strava, a complimentary fitness training application. This synchronization streamlines the process, automatically connecting your training progress to your personalized fundraising page. We encourage you to share your journey with friends and family, thereby involving a broader community in your dual mission: strengthening and challenging yourself, while also providing essential support to the families we assist.

The financial resources raised are directed towards sponsored families who have shared their stories with us. These funds are allocated to address their unique and pressing needs during this transformative and challenging period.

If you are aware of a family in need of our support, we kindly ask you to submit their information to . By doing so, you can help us extend our reach and offer assistance to those who can benefit from our services.
