How to Join
Find an Organized Activity
No matter your state or region, there is an ever-evolving directory of options available for you to explore. We’ve provided some links for you to explore below that may help you find an activity. Not seeing an event or sport you’d like to join? Email us at email@example.com and we will do our best to assist you and share even more information right here. Like any team leader, we are here to support, guide and cheer you on every step of the way!
Run a Race
A traditional approach to fundraising that starts by simply putting one foot in front of the other. The Runner’s World website is a great resource that can lead you to different races listed throughout the U.S. So lace up those shoes and register for a race near you:
Participate in a triathlon
It’s a swimmer, it’s a runner, it’s a cyclist…it’s a triathlete! For the athlete looking to raise awareness by land, bike and sea, check out the list of triathlons in the U.S. that you can race in and support our cause:
Cycle for a Cause
If pushing the pedal to propel awareness is more your style, there are several sites that can help you find a list of upcoming races happening throughout the continental U.S. Check out one of our favorites:www.bikeride.com.
Join an intramural sport team
What better way to exercise and raise funds than by joining a team to flex those 8th-grade sports skills? No matter if you are a retired athlete or a fan ready to get in the game, joining an intramural sports team can be a fun way to bring a collective voice to our cause, not to mention stay active and meet new people.
Intramural leagues generally gain members and build teams with new players who are joining as “free agents”—those looking to join a team solo—or with groups looking to create a new team or join up with an existing one. Check out Zog Sports if you’re an urbanite in Atlanta, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York or Washington, D.C:

Check in with your local Parks and Recreation Department for leagues in your town.
Check out what another one of our favorite intramural leagues, the World Association of Kickball (WAKA), has already done to support Joyful Heart here. WAKA is active throughout the United States, so search for a league in your area at www.kickball.com.
