If you are participating virtually this year, the Activity Tracking feature allows you to easily keep track of your activity to move you closer to reaching the top of Chicago’s Willis Tower. You’ll be able to log activity, edit your personal and/or team activity goal, and view your current streak or longest streak, which will help motivate you and your team to keep being active towards your goal.
When viewing your personal or team fundraising page, friends and family will see how much activity you've completed, such as how many steps or miles you've already accomplished.
