Make the Most of the Challenge
How to Access Your Pledge It Profile
Each adult and child squad challenge registration includes a Pledge It profile. Each participant (adult and child) requires an email address to access Pledge It. Your Pledge It profile is a virtual hub where you can share updates about your progress (including logging your miles) and encourage your friends and family to follow your journey or join in the fun!
To log in to your Pledge It profile, click Sign In in the top right corner of this page and log in using the email and password you chose when you registered. (Can't remember your password or don't remember setting it? Just click Forgot Password? and you will be emailed a link to reset your password).
Once you are logged in, you can customize your page by uploading a profile photo, a cover photo, and sharing your story about why you chose to participate in this challenge and why SEALKIDS' mission is important to you.
How to Post an Update/Log Your Miles
Once you are logged in to Pledge It, you will see a menu on the left of your screen. Click Updates. You should see a green button that says Add update. Click Add update to begin logging your miles. First, use the drop-down menu to choose whether you would like to share this update with your donors (this option will notify anyone who has donated to your fundraising page of your progress update) or share only to your page. Then, enter the number of miles you completed.
If you would like to provide more details, you can write about your run in the text box labeled Share a quick update. There are several other ways to add to your update. When you click Add media, you can upload a photo, share a link to a post you already made on social media (remember to use #SEALKIDSSquad on your updates!), or share details about your miles using a link from Strava or Map My Run. Leading up to the challenge, you can post photo or text updates about how you are preparing for the challenge. However, you will not be able to log your miles until the challenge officially begins on July 1st.
