Virtual challenges are a unique way to engage your supporters for weeks or months, providing them with an experience that enhances their daily life and keeps your organization in the forefront of their mind. Challenges are flexible, providing achievable goals for participants of various levels and can support activities of any type - including non-physical challenges like reading or volunteering.
In short, milestones are intermediate goals that participants can reach along their challenge. Badges are the digital rewards for reaching those milestones.
Milestones can be based on distance covered, elevation gained, or a custom tally (like books read or hot dogs eaten), and can apply as an overall metric or specifically to one activity type. Additionally, you can set individual as well as team milestones. Types of Milestones include:
Badges mark the achievement of reaching a milestone. There are built-in, default badges you and select from for the primary sports on the platform (running, biking, swimming), but you can build a badge for anything. Custom Badges can be still images or fun GIFs - they just need to be 300x300 pixels. If you need a resource for building your own badges, we recommend Canva.
Use our default icons or upload your own custom graphic to display the progress of your participants towards their endurance goal.
