Today, Village of Montgomery, Montgomery Foundation, Engineering Enterprises, Inc. (EEI) and atlasGO announced a partnership for “Miles for Meals” 31 miles in 31 days virtual run/walk challenge. All proceeds to benefit the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry.

“In these times of anxiety and isolation, we want to launch a campaign of hope, solidarity and an event that all ages can take part in. Now more than ever is an important time to take care of your community. Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry is providing a large need for the public in this “new normal”.” said Matt Brolley, Village President.

The central piece of the challenge will be atlasGO (www.atlasgo.org), a fitness tracking app with a social impact component. During the month of May, users will be able to track or log their daily runs, hikes, and other indoor activities on atlasGO. Throughout the challenge, the users will post sweaty selfies and encourage each other to go the extra mile all while helping the Aurora Food Pantry.

“Working with atlasGO is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness and engagement around everyday actions and benefit a community organization that does so much,” said Montgomery Foundation President Peter Wallers.
