100,000 Reasons Challenge

100,000 Reasons Challenge

March 1, 2022 – March 31, 2022

This March, in honor of the 100,000 lives lost each year to preventable blood clots, the National Blood Clot Alliance is setting out to RISE (ride, run, or walk) 100,000 miles, RAISE $100,000, and REACH 100,000 people with life-saving information about blood clots.

Please register here to create your own team, set goals, and compete against individuals and teams for bragging rights and official Team Stop The Clot® merchandise.


Start now! Register, create your fundraiser, and get your fitness integration set up. You can start fundraising now through March 31; and fitness tracking will start on March 1 and log throughout the 31-day virtual challenge during Blood Clot Awareness Month.


Anywhere! This is a virtual challenge with participants all across the globe! You can ride, run, or walk inside or outside, by yourself or with a friend, and at any pace you are comfortable with. This challenge is for everyone!


All funds raised go directly to support the National Blood Clot Alliance’s vision of creating a future in which fewer lives are lost to preventable blood clots through increased awareness, prevention, education, and treatment programs, including the Sports and Wellness Institute.

The Sports and Wellness Institute is one of NBCA’s core programs, focused on helping athletes of all abilities understand and manage their blood clot diagnosis. The Sports and Wellness Institute provides patients with the necessary resources and tools to start or resume their fitness journey, and gain strength and confidence as an athlete and a blood clot survivor.
