It’s time! Kilimanjaro (Marangu Route aka Coca Cola) here we come. Get ready for two weeks of movement, health tips, inspiring stories, new friendships, and FUN! Thank you for accepting this challenge. Here’s how to make the most of the next few weeks.
Move Your Own Way
Whether you’ve been training for weeks or just now dusting off your walking shoes, it’s time to move your own way (walk, garden, strength train, swim, bike, yoga, badminton – you get the idea). Log your activity each day (or several times a day!) on the Racery website or download Racery’s iOS App or Android App.
Click here for FAQs if you have trouble logging into your Racery account.
Connect with other walkers on Racery and share photos or stories on the WWAD Facebook Group. We’re going to cover a lot of ground during this two-week trek up Kilimanjaro, so let’s use the digital world to help support each other and get connected. Write a post in the Facebook Group to introduce yourself and let fellow challengers know why you’ve chosen to embark on this journey. Throughout the two weeks, share your daily successes/setbacks and encourage others.
Start each day with an encouraging word from our health experts at virtual basecamps. New videos will go live on the WWAD Facebook Group every day at 9:00 AM EST. All the videos will also be available here after they air:
If you’re like us, you like to listen to some tunes while you move. Check out the WWAD Spotify playlist for 15+ hours of upbeat songs that are sure to get you moving. PS – You can create a Spotify account for free if you don’t already have one!
Share With Friends
It’s not too late to get others involved. The Thanksgiving holiday may look different this year, so why not get your loved ones to spend time together on the virtual mountain?

Earn Your Swag, Support A Movement
Don’t forget that you can earn some awesome swag by fundraising for the Challenge, and Dr. Sabgir is matching all donations (up to $10,000) between November 1-28!
While the swag is pretty incredible on its own, your donations go far beyond that. Whether you donate yourself or ask friends and family to help support you, every dollar raised will help Walk with a Doc expand our reach and bring the power of walking, health education, and social connection to the masses.
What’s your “why”? Reducing the risk of heart disease? Cancer? Stroke? Another one of these reasons? Whatever it is, know that these generous contributions will have a life-long impact on many people around the world.
Let’s Do This Thing!
Questions? Comments? Concerns?
Thank you to everyone who responded to David and Kristin Sabgir’s $10,000 match! This generosity inspired the Brandon family to add $1,000 to the matching funds. And…drumroll please…we have matched your donations with this $11,00!
But that’s not all, we want to say thank you to Donna Raque who closed out the match with her big-hearted donation of $500. Thank you Tony and Corinne Konecny for getting the military alumni associations involved (including Dick Moore) and creating a match of your own. And Joel and Kathy Kahn for their magnanimous gift of $1,000.
Thank you to the Sabgir, Brandon, Kahn, Konecny, and Raque families! And thank you to all of you for helping us to double the impact! The match is now over, but our gratitude continues!!!
