Move For a Cause, a new virtual race company hosting monthly events has launched its first event, Ks for the Kids, in September. This virtual race series creates a national community of athletes united by their desire to be active and help raise money for some amazing charities. Ks for the Kids benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

Created by Trail Racing Over Texas’s founder, Rob Goyen, this endeavor is a fresh take on virtual racing that focuses on charity, transparency and community. Every month, Move For a Cause will host national events and in the process cultivate a tribe of runners throughout the United State connected via social media and through local running groups. Each event has a low cost entry fee and is tied to a different charity ranging from nature conservation, health and veterans services. Five dollars of every single registration goes directly to the cause of the month.

“No matter where you are, we are all connected by our desire to be part of a tribe,” says founder, Rob Goyen. “I created Move For a Cause to create a venue to share our values of sport, community and giving back. I’m very excited to see how much our community of runners will be able to raise for our amazing charities.”

Over the next five months, Move For a Cause events will benefit the Tumaini Children’s Project, The Nature Conservatory, The Snowdrop Foundation, the Animal Welfare Institute and Team RWB.
