Austin, TX – March 3, 2021 – FitRankings, the fitness industry’s most technologically advanced connected fitness platform, is excited to team up with KT Tape®, leaders in elastic therapeutic sports tape, for the KT Tape® 2021 Charity Series. Participants from across the globe are invited to kick-off the Charity Series by competing in the KT Tape Endurance Challenge, a month-long fitness competition for charity.
Throughout March, individuals are encouraged to join the KT Tape® community, registering to compete with one of five different teams represented by world-class KT Tape® athletes Brandon Lyons, Molly Huddle, Meb Keflezighi, Matt McElroy, and Oksana Masters. Participants will track their workouts as they push towards their individual fitness goals, accruing minutes for their team while competing to raise money for the teams’ charity designations.
Through the FitRankings platform, individuals can register online, and link their favorite activity-tracking device to the challenge. Using any wearable fitness device, tracker, or app to log their workout minutes, KT Tape® Endurance Challenge participants can track their progress through the interactive FitRankings dashboard while engaging with the likes of Lyons, Huddle, Keflezighi, McElroy, and Masters. Whether braving the elements and logging miles outside or getting after a home workout, all participants’ minutes contribute to their respective teams while supporting causes like the USA Triathlon Foundation, National Black Marathoners Association, Kindness Wins, Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF), and USATF Emerging Female Coaching Grant.
“The KT Tape® Endurance Challenge gives our community the unique ability to engage with the Olympians and Paralympians that inspire all of us while supporting great causes.
