Dear Generation Next,

We see you. We see how much you care. We see how motivated you are. We see your strength.

So we designed Positive Tracks U23 Challenges to help you channel your own secret sauce into action for the causes you care about most. Play kickball for cancer. Run a 10K for a food shelf. Shoot hoops for the environment. If you can dream it, we can help you make it happen, and we’ve got your back every step of the way.


You choose your cause and athletic endeavor and apply to be a U23 Challenge Captain. Once we accept your idea, we connect with you to help you get started. We provide free counsel on event planning and logistics, leadership, team building, fitness, and everything you need to sweat for good from start to finish. 

This includes hands on help from a real person, an extensive library of toolkitscool swag, insurance, digital registration and fundraising pages. We’ll even match your dollars if fundraising is your thing! Our favorite part though? We pair you with a Peer Coach – a past U23 Challenge Captain – if you want one.

After your event, we help process your charitable contribution. Every dollar raised goes to your beneficiary organization in addition to Positive Tracks matching dollars.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY GET ACTIVE? You can join an existing athletic event or tournament, or you can organize your own – whatever moves you! Dodge-ball, dance-a-thon, trail run, sail. If you’re game to get active, we’re game to help.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY GIVE BACK? Participate, recruit and mobilize friends, volunteer, mentor, educate, fundraise. Or all of the above. You choose; we help. 

READY TO GET IN THE GAME? Click Submit An Application below (you must be age 23 or under to apply). Or contact Liz Gray for a personal consult. Check out current and past U23 Challenges for inspiration, too!











Positive Tracks is psyched to help you support most any cause you believe in, however we will not support: discrimination of any type; attempts to influence legislation; political candidates; sectarian religious activity (any organization that has an established theological or spiritual purpose or perspective); organizations without U.S. nonprofit status or fiscal sponsorship.
