FAQs

GENERAL

How can I participate? The event program will be live broadcast through the Charge Running app at 10 am EDT on Saturday, November 5. If you are participating virtually, from your own neighborhood, you can tune into that broadcast by downloading the Charge Running app (stay tuned for a unique link!). If you live in or are visiting Boston, Chicago, DC, or NYC, you can join us in person. In-person walks will be held in conjunction with the live broadcast on the morning of Saturday, November 5. For information and directions for those in-person events, visit the individual event pages.

What is the Charge Running app and how do I use it? For those participating virtually, you will be able to tune into the live broadcast of our program the morning on Saturday, November 5, at 10 am EDT while you walk. Each participant will be able to hear the broadcast, snap photos to share in the live chat feature, and track their mileage. You may even hear your name called out as you cross the finish line! This app will be used only on the morning of November 5 for the live broadcast program. Stay tuned for a unique download link!
