We helped Kiwis Sweat with Pride to raise over $1.8 million for Rainbow communities through innovative online peer-to-peer fundraising challenges.
We’ve collaborated with Burnett Foundation Aotearoa for several years, engaging in numerous projects and campaigns. Among them, a standout is Sweat with Pride, an annual online peer-to-peer fundraising challenge powered by the incredible Raisely platform and held in June each year.
Sweat with Pride inspires individuals, teams, and workplaces to exercise (in whatever form they choose!) their way to the top of the leaderboard, collecting donations along the way to support an incredibly worthy cause.
At the heart of Sweat with Pride are three mascots, or “Perspirational Trainers” – famous and much-loved local drag queens and kings. Participants choose a trainer when signing up, and from then on they receive email and SMS communications from their trainer to help and encourage them on their exercise journey.
Once participants have signed up, they can customise their public profile page to explain why they’re sweating with pride, and set a daily exercise goal for the challenge month of June. Participants sign in to their dashboard to update their exercise totals, post “blog” updates, and receive encouragement from their trainer.
A recent addition to the annual Sweat with Pride challenge – and enhanced further for 2023 – is Workplaces. Large businesses and organisations are able to sign up as a special profile type, and then have their staff join underneath the Workplace umbrella to compete against fellow staff members and even other Workplaces. You can imagine the competition is fierce between competing large organisations, which of course leads to more donations being made!
Every year, we refresh Sweat with Pride’s visuals and enhance its functionality to make each challenge feel unique and to align with users’ expectations for this substantial web app. We maintain specific design elements for a sense of continuity that embodies “Sweat with Pride.”
Sweat with Pride 2023, the latest challenge at the time of writing, achieved remarkable success by raising over $645,000 for Rainbow communities!
