Rick, Jon, and Steve—three healthy guys who were into sports—had an idea to create a activity rewards program to encourage people to get active by linking anyone's activities to the charitable donations of sponsoring companies. They called their buddy Joe, who knew a thing or two about mobile phone technology, and together they started Plus3.
At first, it was focused on cycling, but due to demand, it quickly expanded to include a huge range of healthy activities, from cycling to walking to just drinking more water. That's when other companies started to notice that people were participating in Plus3 because they actually wanted to, not because they had to. The Plus3 team realized their idea could help way more people than they thought.
Today, companies use Plus3 to motivate their entire workforces to get healthy and stay healthy—from tiny offices to global organizations. So far, Plus3 has moved $3,138,460 in charitable donations, all of it linked to the healthy activities of Plus3 members.
