History is happening before our eyes. As time goes on, more efforts are being created all across the country in order to spread awareness for the Black Lives Matter Movement, but there is still a long way to go.
Move For The Movement is a fundraiser that has been created in order to raise awareness and donate money to the organizations that support and stand for the Black Lives Matter Movement.

2. Go to our Google Folder for resources to make this easy! This folder includes images to share on social media, education resources and action steps that you can take now to combat systemic racism.
3. Collect Donations - from Monday, June 15th to Friday, June 19th, participants in the fundraiser will collect as many donations as they can.
4. Sweat for Good. On June 20th and 21st, everyone who is participating in the fundraiser will take to the streets and run. For every $25 dollars raised, we will all run a mile (or walk, bike, skateboard, or any other means of moving your body).
WHO WE'RE HELPING
All of the money that is raised will be equally divided and donated to two organizations that support the Black Lives Matter Movement. These organizations are:
TAG TO SPREAD AWARENESS
In your social media posts, tag @aclu_nationwide, @naacp, and our partner, @postracks so people will know why you're sweating and so we can cheer you on.
HOW TO FOLLOW ALONG
On June 20th and June 21st, we will all be posting ourselves sweating for good on our own Instagram and Facebook pages.
During the fundraising week, also check out the participant's social media accounts for information and useful resources related to the Black Lives Matter Movement.
We're partnering with Positive Tracks, an organization that teaches young people how to sweat for good. In addition to coaching us through this effort, they will match up to $100 we raise and are providing us with this GoFundMe site. All funds raised here will go to the organizations we're supporting.
