Going the Distance to Invest in Dreams
314.78 miles completed out of 428.00 miles
For 25 years Soroptimist International of Delano (SI Delano) has held a fun, exciting, and highly successful golf tournament as the foundation for raising funds that provide women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. Thanks to generous donors and golf enthusiasts, we have been able to award $10k-$15k every year in scholarships.
However, Covid canceled our biggest fundraiser for the year and altered our fundraising strategies. What was first seen as a drawback, we soon realized is a great opportunity to broaden our activities and spread the life-changing mission.
Join our Virtual Race to make a difference in a life, one woman at a time. After operational expenses are deducted, 100% of the proceeds will be awarded to recipients of Soroptimist International of Delano scholarships and awards.
The miles you put in will help us move across 10 monuments in our area! Let's double or even triple back to visit each of the 10 monuments more than once. Together we can collectively cover as many miles as possible! Run, bike, swim, and more. Invite friends and family to join, upload sweaty selfies, and give virtual high fives along the way!
All participants who reach their individual goal will be entered into a raffle for $100 prizes!
This tour across our area is a way to stay active and healthy while raising critical funds for the Soroptimist International of Delano scholarships and awards.

Soroptimist is an international organization working together to transform the lives of women and girls in our local communities and around the world.
Our vision is to enable women and girls to have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams. Our years of experience working with women and girls in Delano has taught us that education is the key to unlocking economic empowerment. When women and girls are educated, they have the opportunity, choice, and power to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.
You will participate in the Race Around the Regions on the atlasGO app. You will be able to track your activities, post sweaty selfies and share virtual high-fives with the community.

How can I post a photo on the feed?
After submitting your activity on the GO screen, click on the share button. You will be able to either take a picture or choose one from your library. You can also add a comment if you like and share your picture on other social media channels outside of atlasGO. As soon as you have shared your photo it will appear on the feed.
Why does the app not allow me to import my steps from Fitbit or another app?
We don't allow importing steps as the challenge promotes conscious workouts such as walks, hikes or runs. Importing daily steps that also include all the steps you take at home is therefore not enabled.
Why does the app tell me that I can't add more miles?
For all activities, the application puts an upper cap to make sure our users don't put an unrealistic number by mistake, as an example 22 hours of baking instead 22 minutes of baking. The cap is set for a period of 24 hours and if you think you weren't able to add all your activities because of a cap, you can always reach out to email@example.com and ask them to add your additional activity.
What will happen when the challenge is over?
We invite you to continue using the atlasGO app. We have a variety of Virtual Races that you can check out on virtualraces.org or you can plant trees with the atlasGO free Community Challenge.

atlasGO has an option to track distance based activities by GPS tracking but it does not seem to work properly. What is wrong?
Depending on many external factors, tracking can be inaccurate sometimes. Here are a couple of ways you can improve accuracy:
Make sure you are outside. We can not track your activity indoors. It is difficult to catch the right satellite signal indoors. For the optimal accuracy please add your activity manually if you are running on a treadmill or if you are walking in a building. You can do this by clicking on the “+” sign on the GO screen. Make sure you activated localization. We can not track your activity if tracking is not activated. Please allow tracking by going to your settings. Fully charge your battery. When your phone is on low battery or if you use the battery saving option tracking services will be less accurate. Please update the app. We continuously work on improving accuracy. You might be on an old app version. A full refresh is the best way to avoid issues. Delete atlasGO and download again.
For best results with GPS tracking iOS:
For best results with GPS tracking Android:
1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App. 2. Reset network and location warnings in settings, and reboot device. 3. Make sure your phone’s battery saving mode is turned off as that can affect GPS.
4. If none of the above work, please delete & re-install the app to see if this helps.
IF ALL OF THESE TIPS AND TRICKS DON’T HELP YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO LOG YOUR ACTIVITIES AND DISTANCE MANUALLY
Can I use the App abroad?
Yes you can but please be aware that our GPS tracking requires you to have an internet connection at the end of a fitness session so consider potential roaming costs whilst tracking your activity.
Which software does the app require?
Please update the app to the latest iOS or Android version to make sure it runs smoothly.
