MyCityMoves is a fitness competition designed to build fitter, healthier cities.

Last year – in the first challenge of it’s kind, anywhere – we got over 300 Philadelphians burning over 3.25 million calories and awarded Gary Lamsback, Jen Zoga, and Ray Davis – normal Philadelphia citizens – $10,000 for their effort.

This year, that could be you – and you’ll have a great time doing it. All you need is a MYZONE belt and to let us know you’re down. You and thousands of other Philadelphians will join Philly’s leading fitness personalities for 20 days of WILD fitness programming and a chance of your own to win $10,000 in cash.

IMovedPhilly – $5,000 Raffle Grand Prize Drawing

Philadelphia is getting up and moving this March, so everyone who moves (enough) has a chance to win the raffle-style grand prize. Everybody wins in the cosmic sense, but the more you move during MyCityMoves, the better your chances to walk away with $5,000. (Details in Terms and Conditions)

The Answer – $1,000 for most MEPs

Allen Iverson was defined by his grit – though he was often the smallest person on the court and would get knocked down again and again, he kept working and hung up his sneaks as one of Philly’s greatest athletes. Big or small, seasoned athlete or newbie, the person that puts in the most work and earns the most MEPs during MyCitymoves will win $1,000. (Details in Terms and Conditions)

The Rocky Balboa – $1,000 for most Kcals

No one trained harder than Rocky. Even as he gets up there in the years, the guy puts in work, and as seen in Creed, he’s still going – and THAT is why he’s become an iconic symbol of Philadelphia. No matter who you are or how you train, if you burn the most calories during MyCityMoves, you’re getting $1,000. (Details in Terms and Conditions)

The Vince Papale – $1,000 for biggest lifestyle transformation

Vince Papale’s transformation from “local guy” to Philly legend happened in the span of just a few months, and his fight to get there is cemented in Philadelphia’s proud sports tradition. We’re putting up $1,000 for Philadelphia’s next Vince Papale during MyCityMoves. (Details in Terms and Conditions)

The Ben Franklin – $2,000 donated to Urban Roots for most engagement

Ben Franklin’s footprint can be seen all over Philadelphia; our zoo, our libraries, our politics – the guy still even walks around. Every time you use #MyCityMoves to tell your story, you’re contributing to a city known for its fitness culture, rather than cheesesteaks and beer. For the person who most helps to tell our story, we’ll donate $2,000 in your name to Urban Roots to support their work renovating Philly’s public parks.
