How It All Began
How did this begin? Two sisters, ANGIE& ASHLEY, set a goal to run 1,000 mile each in 2013. Then they decided to open it up to their friends and family and invite them to participate in the challenge! It was just the beginning of something exciting and a ton of fun! They started searching for people all over the world to run with them to the MOON for 2013! Goal Accomplished! There are participants from more than 40 countries around the world and growing! We would love to have you part of this fun running community! It is perfect for beginners, people that just love walking, jogging, or running, and competitive marathoners… and everyone in between! We invite you to join us in our journeys!
We ♥ RUNNING! READY FOR A CHALLENGE?
We invite people from all over the world to become a Moon Jogger and join this incredible running community as we journey through space. While our goal is to travel through space, each individual Moon Jogger chooses their own personal goals for the year. We are looking for people to join our expedition to walk, jog and run to the Moon and all the planets in the solar system! We want YOU! We want people of all fitness levels and of all ages!
On January 1, 2013 the Moon Joggers took off on their first expedition – the moon. On May 23, 2013 we made our first landing on the moon and then made our way back home. Now we are working on reaching every planet in the solar system!
Making a difference...one race at a time!
We created Virtual Run Events in April 2015 because we LOVE running! And even more, we LOVE connecting with runners. Shortly after we created Moon Joggers, we began to realize that we could encourage to people to get out and get moving, AND make a difference throughout the world by creating fun and unique events to raise money for various charities and causes. For each event we design a unique medal, invite people to get out and run (or walk) their own race, at their own pace and choose a charity to donate a portion of the proceeds to.
We are on a quest to help provide food, shoes, schools, school supplies, water, toilets, toys and other needed things to people throughout the world and it is all happening through our Virtual Run Events. We love being involved in the running community and have made so many new running friends from all over the world. Thank you so much for participating! We are making a difference…one race at a time!
With each virtual race we hold we choose a charity to raise funds for. Below is a list of charities we have donated to. Between Virtual Run Events and our sister site, Moon Joggers, we have donated more than $377,000 to charities around the world!
