INTRODUCING THE TSP FUND
The TSP Fund is an initiative of The Speed Project to support organizations harnessing the power of running to address inequalities in health, fight systemic injustice, and create pathways to opportunity in communities worldwide.
The TSP Fund is launching alongside TSP DIY, a global, decentralized event from The Speed Project. Starting at 4AM on September 5th, 2020, teams and runners from around the world have 31 hours, 15 minutes to run as many kilometers as they can, wherever they want, relay-style. A response to the global pandemic, TSP DIY seeks to connect the running community through a meaningful, challenging, rewarding, do-it-yourself experience.
And in that same spirit, TSP DIY's teams and solo runners will raise money for six transformational organizations with every kilometer they run by collecting pledges from their friends, families, and communities.
