Dear Generation Next,

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

So we designed Positive Tracks U23 Challenges to help you activate that secret sauce 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.


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 if you have chosen to fundraise (which is 100% optional). Every dollar raised goes to your beneficiary organization, in addition to Positive Tracks matching dollars.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY “SWEAT FOR GOOD”? You can join an existing athletic event or tournament, or you can organize your own – whatever moves you. Then you use that event to educate friends, peers or family about your cause or organization. You can also use your event to fundraise for an organization you care about – and we’ll show you how. Check out our list of Sweat for Good ideas.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY “GIVE BACK”? Participate, lead, recruit, mobilize, volunteer, mentor, educate or fundraise. You choose exactly how you want to be involved. We help you get started and we have your back every step of the way. Check out our U23 Challenges Highlights for inspiration.

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.
