Welcome to the Dream On 3 “Get In The Huddle” virtual walk/run/bike challenge benefitting the non-profit organization Dream On 3 based in Charlotte, NC.

Dream On 3 creates sports-themed experiences for those, ages 5-21, who are living with a life-altering condition by customizing V.I.P. experiences with a favorite athlete, sports team, or sporting event.  Dream On 3 hopes to ignite faith, hope, love and joy into the lives of their recipients (Dream Kids). Dream On 3’s programs include Dream Experiences, Collegiate and Jr. Dream Teams, Day Dreams, alumni programs and the Dream On 3 scholarship program.

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2022 through January 28th, 2022.  100% of all registration proceeds and donations (less whatever fees RunSignup charges to process payments) will go towards the Dream On 3 Organization.  

How It Works

You and up to 4 of your friends will team up to form teams of 5.  Individuals are more than welcome to sign up.  If you don't have a team and can't get 4 of your BFF's to join, we'll place you on a team before a Challenge starts or is underway.  Team members should assign one team captain to set-up your team.  The team captain will be able to share the team name for others to register and join. You will also be able to search for a team during registration and choose to join the team then.

There will be 2 virtual challenges that you can join anytime up until the challenge ends on 1/28/21:

A walk/run challenge map will take you and your teammates around virtually to various sporting venues and hotspots in the Charlotte/NC Piedmont Region.

A bike challenge map will take you and your teammates virtually across the Great State of North Carolina visiting various sporting venues and hot spots.  

Along the way you’ll learn about the rich sports history in North Carolina and past experiences of some Dream On 3 Dream Kids your registration fees and donations are supporting.

What Do I Get If My Team Wins?

An entry into a cash drawing for $ 2,500, $ 1,250 and $500 to be held at the Dream On 3 Gala Event on 1/29/2022 in Charlotte, NC.

Wait, what?

That’s not a typo…here is who wins what.

$ 2,500 top prize

The top 3rd of the teams with the longest distance for each virtual race AND the top 3rd of individuals in the walk, run and bike categories will be entered into the drawing automatically.  If a team name is drawn the team will split the $2500 prize ($500 each).  If an individual is drawn then, Congratulations, you’ll get the whole enchilada.

But there is more…

$ 1,250 2nd prize

The next 3rd of the teams with the longest distance for each virtual race AND the next 3rd of individuals in the walk, run and bike categories will be entered into the drawing automatically.  If a Team name is drawn the team will split the $1250 prize ($250 each).  If an individual is drawn then you’ll get to laugh your way all the way to the bank, after stretching of course!

$500 3rd prize

We couldn’t let the bottom 3rd of teams and individuals feel left out so we’re spreading the love.  We know you tried and we appreciate you for that!  The bottom 3rd of teams and individuals will be entered into a drawing automatically.  If a Team name is drawn the team will split the $500 prize ($100 each).  If an individual is drawn then you’ll get to do as you please with your winnings.

Tiebreakers – If there happens to be a need for a tie-breaker and you can’t get that last second walk/run/bike in, we’ll use the better average pace for the team and individual categories.  

How Do I Track My Results?

You will need to track your run/walk/bike using one of the many GPS-enabled tracking systems (Strava, Map My Run, Garmin, Wahoo, etc.).  From there you will upload your tracked run/walk/bike into the event’s site which will update the leaderboard and move your team’s dot across the course map. For the sake of validation, manual entries without GPS are not encouraged but will be permitted with a picture of the activity on your tracking device.  Strava syncs with Peloton if you plan on running or riding on a Peloton Bike or Tread.

What If My Team Gets To The End Of The Map?

You're either a beast or we miscalculated and made the course too short, most likely the latter since we're not professional race organizers and we just want to raise as much money for Dream On 3 as we can.  Just keep walking, running and biking because your stats keep compiling and the Challenge doesn't end until 1/28/22 at 11:59PM. 

Swag?

If cash prizes aren't enough, we also have these really cool race shirts available to purchase.  We’ll try to have the shirts available as soon as possible.  We’ll plan on ordering in batches and our goal is to have the first batch of shirts available by the start of the Challenge.  More details to come for shirt availability.

Discounts And Referrals – Spread The Word!!!

When you register for a race, you will receive an email with a unique link you can distribute to your friends and family.  If 5 people register for an event using your unique link you will receive a $10 discount off your registration.

As an added BONUS, for every 5 people who register using your unique link, you will receive an additional entry into the cash drawing you qualify for at the end of the Challenge.

5 people/referrals = 1 additional entry, 10 people/referrals = 2 additional entries, etc.

They MUST use your link to register or the referrals won’t count unfortunately.

Tentative Meetup Scheduled - Time/Place TBD

Sometime the week of January 17th we'll be scheduling a meetup at a place TBD (most likely one of Charlotte's finest breweries).  We want to get everyone together to spread some cheer, bust chops on who is slacking off (just kidding maybe not), take a bunch of cool photos and learn some more about what the fine folks at Dream On 3 are all about and how we can help make some Dreams come true.

More details to follow.
