How it Works

Welcome to the Virtual Fitness Challenge, powered by District.

District has partnered with Rise Against Hunger, supporting the global movement to end hunger. By purchasing a ticket, you play a vital role in helping the 821 million people around the world who suffer from hunger. With every ticket purchased, $5 is donated to empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies. Help us ensure that everyone on the planet has the nutrition necessary to live life to his or her full potential.

Turn exercise into a game as you explore your city with a map of virtual checkpoints and challenges. The District app will transform your normal neighborhood into a virtual obstacle course.

Buying a ticket gets you unlimited access to explore with District from now until August 30th. Get on the leaderboard by taking part in any of the five Challenges in your city. Each Challenge is a 5km run with Checkpoints, Bodyweight Exercises and Time Trial sprints to complete.

Start at any Checkpoint, and try to collect as many as you can before the 60-minute time limit expires. Complete each challenge at your own pace, at any time of the day, and complete them over and over as many times as you would like.

Help Us Give Back

Rise Against Hunger is growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies.

There are 821 million people around the world who suffer from hunger (FAO 2019) and according to the UN, the COVID-19 pandemic could double these numbers. At Rise Against Hunger, we believe everyone on the planet has the right to the nutrition necessary to live life to his or her full potential. We are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Goal #2 of Zero Hunger.

Since our founding in 1998, the ways in which we seek to end hunger have continued to evolve. From the implementation of sustainable community development agriculture projects to our meal packaging program that harnesses the passion of volunteers, we work every day to make an impact on hunger.

We are located in 28 cities throughout the U.S. and have five additional Global Member locations in South Africa, Malaysia, Italy, India and the Philippines. In 2019, Rise Against Hunger served 1.7 million beneficiaries.
