Strava and Momentum P2P: Holding Virtual Athletic Fundraisers

With athletic peer to peer fundraisers going virtual during Covid-19, we’ve added Strava support to Momentum P2P. Make any athletic fundraising event fully virtual and inspire walkers, runners, cyclists and others to raise funds with Momentum P2P’s new Strava features.

We’ve built virtual racetracks, athletic stats and rankings, athletic awards, athletic leaderboards and more – all the real world components of a live athletic event, designed for your virtual event and powered by athletic data from the Strava activities of your fundraisers!

Virtual Racetrack

Setup a virtual racetrack for your event and add athletic milestones to inspire your participants’ fundraising efforts. Every fundraiser that links their Strava account will have a virtual racetrack added to their fundraising page, showing their progress towards the campaign athletic goal.

If you’re holding a biking event, skiiing event, or any other type of athletic event, you can customize fundraiser’s virtual racetracks to suit your campaign athletic activity.

Athletic Stats & Awards

Whenever fundraisers complete an athletic activity in Strava (e.g. complete a run, bike ride, etc.), their progress is automatically synced with their fundraising page. Fundraisers can then see their current standing compared to other riders, their milestone awards, and their overall athletic progress.

Progress Updates from Strava

Momentum syncs more than just athletic stats though. Recent athletic activity info and maps are also added to fundraiser pages to give progress updates to donors and inspire fundraising.

Athletic Leaderboard

Show who’s in the lead amongst your fundraisers with Momentum’s embeddable athletic leaderboard widget. Add it to your homepage, racing results page, or anywhere you want to inspire fundraisers to go the extra mile.

The athletic leaderboard can be customized to suit your campaign needs as well. If you want to display more than the top 5 participants, you can increase the number of participants shown using the leaderboard control panel.

Take your athletic event virtual

Transform your athletic event with Momentum’s athletic event features and Strava support. This will provide your fundraisers with the tools needed to grow their fundraising potential from last year.

Add Livestreaming to your Peer to Peer Fundraiser with Momentum

In the wake of the current pandemic fundraising events are increasingly going virtual- with the fundraising landscape changing, fundraising platforms need to change too. To help your fundraisers adapt to the new virtual landscape, we’ve added video livestreaming to our fundraising platform Momentum P2P.

Empower your fundraisers to hold a video game fundraiser, share their livestream via Momentum to Facebook, hold a virtual fundraising challenge such as a readathon or a physical challenge, host a Q/A, provide regular live sessions to prospective and current donors, virtual charity run, auction, celebration fundraiser, and more!
