“We had a great experience with Racery! It was nice to have a platform that was geared specifically towards exercise, rather than just a typical peer-to-peer setup. We really liked how interactive it was; it was fun and motivating to see progress on the map, see activity logs, message each other, etc. I was motivated to get on every day and see what people were doing, as well as compete and raise funds for Shade.” — Claire Fedele, Executive Director [Shade]
