General Questions

You choose a challenge and run on the Atlas app as much as you can. You will raise 25¢ for every mile you run for a non-profit partner! Help to spread the word by posting your runs on your personal social media channels and ask your friends to join our community of sweaty change makers.

We focus today on running because all you need is to put your shoes on and you are ready to go! You can run anywhere and can team up to run with your buddies. All you need is the power of will to run the extra mile for others. You can also walk. We won’t judge you.

No, we are a for profit C-Corp (in the process of becoming a Benefit Corporation.) This means that the money we generate is distributed fairly to all stakeholders involved in the making of Atlas. We generate money thanks to our corporate sponsors.  Every time you spread the word you help us improve Atlas and keep it running. It is important to note that we do not take a cut from the amount that is raised through Atlas. 100% of the funds you raise while running go directly from the corporate sponsor to the cause you are running for.

Once upon a time Thomas was running the 20km of Brussels and thought about the power of all of these people running together. These people share a passion. What if they could also share a purpose? Run together for something greater than themselves whenever they want.

It was clear to him that he needed two things: a better understanding of the industry and an innovative environment to work in. So he decided to move to the capital of innovation and foolishness: San Francisco. Thomas had this ambitious dream of wanting to create a global community of sweaty changemakers and was lucky enough to find two people who shared his unreasonableness: Magali & Olivier. They all met as they studied their Master of Social Entrepreneurship. Magali’s passion for running, social impact & marketing was a direct fit and Oli’s CSR and financial planning expertise was a no brainer! Together they’re now running the change in San Francisco and building this community thanks to you!

We wanted to come up with a name that represented strength, credibility and community. First of all Atlas represents the globe illustrating this global community of changemakers we want to build. Atlas is also the name of the Titan that is supporting the world on his shoulders. The Titan represents the strength that each one of us can have to push this world forward. Each person can make his impact. Whoever he/she is  and wherever he/she comes from. Even you!
