How do we ‘Move for Mary’s Meals’ as a team?

You can move as an individual, a family, or a team. You have the option of creating one fundraising page for each family and team and you can all share the link with your networks, or you can each create a page, and turn it into a friendly competition!

At this time we don’t have the ability to link pages but use a team name in your fundraising page title to group your team’s pages together.

Why did Run as One Change?

Move for Mary’s Meals started in Germany a few years ago and has been hugely successful. After five years of Run as One, we wanted to keep the idea of movement but join our partners in this great program. Our goal is to feed the next hungry child and we have found that the best way for us to do that is inviting more people into the family. You can help us do that!
