Zwift, the global online training platform, has today announced a partnership with adidas to bring the #Hometeamhero challenge on Zwift. Connect to the adidas run app and donate activity minutes, either ride or run, to the hometeam heroes challenge to help fight COVID 19. Each hour of activity adidas will donate $1 to the World Health Organisation with the cumulative goal being 1 million hours. 

From 29 May to 7 June, sign up to events on Zwift with special guests in both cycling and running or just log your miles to count towards the mission. Find out how to connect the adidas app to your Zwift account in this helpful Youtube video here. Join events to ride and run with the community and help raise money for COVID-19 relief.
