Select the distance
Select the distance you will contribute to covering with your team during the 20 days of rally. You have two options:
– From Venezuela to Perú: 600 km
– From Syria to Greece: 1200 km
We know that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, not all persons can go out. That’s why, we offer you the option to fulfill your goals by covering the distance in minutes, where 1km = 10 minutes.

As soon as you sign up, you will receive an email with a file that will enable you and the other team members to fill the kilometers you have covered every day.
If you choose the minutes option, you won’t need to use the app. You will only fill in the file with the number of minutes in km (10 min = 1 km).
