PULLL

Introducing PULLL

Introducing PULLL

PULLL is a fundraising app, developed and powered by Pelotonia, that allows users to generate funds for cancer research through exercise (cycling, running, or walking). PULLL is free for anyone with a smartphone and is available in the App store or the Google Play store.

By introducing a community and a cause to fitness tracking technology, we believe we can change the health outcomes for those with cancer and improve the health of PULLL users—ultimately leading to healthier communities nationwide!

The basics? It’s easy.

PULLL users are able to raise money for life-saving cancer research by unlocking funds contributed by corporate partners. Every activity through cycling, running or walking, both indoor or outdoor, has an earn rate that partners have committed to donating.

Simply open the app before any indoor or outdoor activity and unlock funds for cancer research. In addition to the funds you unlock, 100% of dollars raised, by getting your network to BOOST your activity, will be directed to cancer research, too!

You can also sync PULLL with your Strava or MapMyFitness accounts to download your activity right to PULLL.

Ready. Set. Change the world.

General PULLL Questions

What is PULLL?

PULLL is a fundraising app that allows users to generate funds for cancer research through exercise (cycling, running, or walking). It’s free for anyone with a smartphone and can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store.

How do I use PULLL?

Open the app before any indoor or outdoor activity and unlock funds provided by corporate partners to fund cancer research. In addition to the funds you unlock, 100% of dollars raised, by getting your network to BOOST your activity, will be directed to cancer research, too.  And, you can sync PULLL with Strava or MapMyFitness to download all your activity right to PULLL. Like we said—it’s easy.

What is PULLL’s goal?

To engage a community of 500,000 advocates raising $50 million annually within 5 years!

How does PULLL work?

Through an activity of their choice like walking, running, or riding, PULLL users can track their activities and 100% of the funds they raise exercising will be donated to life-saving cancer research. Through public fundraising reserves, uses will be able to earn funds using a pre-determined rate based on miles or time from official PULLL sponsors.

Where do the fundraising dollars I’m unlocking come from?

When you use PULLL, you’re unlocking fundraising dollars for public fundraising reserves. Those funds are generously donated by PULLL partners. You can identify what partner’s reserve you’re PULLLing from through the company logo on the Start Activity screen. Don’t forget that friends and family can also BOOST your efforts to generate even more funding for cancer research.

How did Pelotonia come up with the idea to create PULLL?

Pelotonia ride weekend in Columbus, Ohio has been one of the most successful fundraising initiatives of the past decade, raising over $157 million for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. So, the team at Pelotonia wanted to give everyone an opportunity to be a part of this special movement. The best way to connect with anyone in the world is through the devices we carry with us every day—our phones. So we think an app is a great way to build an even bigger community— and that together we can do even more to change the world!

What causes can I raise money for with PULLL?

100% of every dollar raised through PULLL, whether through BOOSTS or sponsored workouts, goes directly to cancer research at OSUCCC.

Why the extra “L”?

There are three “L’s” in PULLL. The third “L” reminds us of the one more we strive to achieve. One more activity, one more BOOST, one more breakthrough, one more cure. By combining a community and a cause with fitness tracking technology, we believe the positive outcomes will ultimately lead to happier, healthier communities nationwide.

What is a BOOST?

A BOOST is a pat on the back, a high-five, a peer-to-peer “microdonation” that rewards a workout, a training ride, or just a walk in the park. These incremental donations made by friends, family or fans after a user’s activity are the secret weapon powering the PULLL community! Every BOOST has the potential to change the world because 100% of every dollar raised through BOOSTS will be donated directly to cancer research.

A user should expect to their latest BOOSTs accredited to their next workout.

I would like a tax receipt for BOOSTS I’ve made to PULLL users. Who should I contact?

We commend you for staying on top of your charitable giving receipts! Please email taxreceipts@pulll.org and we’ll get a receipt sent to you as soon as possible. Please note that we will send aggregate receipts for cumulative BOOSTS of $250 or more in a calendar year.

What is a Private Reserve?

Private reserves are fundraising dollars that are being donated by companies to build stronger teams internally by funding & supporting their employee’s activities in PULLL. If you’re an employee or teammate in a company with a private PULLL reserve, you can expect to be contacted by HR or leadership on how to tap into these sponsored funds.

How is this different than Map My Run / Ride?

PULLL can sync with fitness apps like MapMyFitness, MapMyRun, MapMyRide & Strava. The difference between the two is PULLL unlocks fundraising dollars for cancer research, thanks to our generous PULLL funding partners.

Can PULLL be used to generate funds for my cause?

PULLL, powered by Pelotonia, is a fundraising tool for cancer research at The Ohio State University. It is currently not available to generate funds for other causes.

We will not be including funds earned and BOOSTS made to non-riders during this ride-focused event.

I work for a company that has set aside specific Private Reserve funding for employees. How can I ensure that I am able to unlock these funds through PULLL?

Each of our partners manages private reserves differently. Typically communication about how to access a PULLL private reserve will be provided by your Human Resources or Leadership team. In the event that you still can’t find what you’re looking for, please send a note to support@PULLL.org and we’ll help get you set up or in touch with the correct person for your team

My employer would like to set up a Private Reserve for our colleagues/How can I do this?

Awesome! We want to hear from you. Please email our team at partnerships@PULLL.org and someone will reach out to discuss ways in which we can make an impact together.

I work for a company that has set aside specific Private Reserve funding for employees. What happens when the reserve runs out?

Fear not. You’ll automatically be able to earn funds from our generous public reserve partners. That being said, we hope your company will consider a further investment in our private reserves—we’re guessing you want to keep the momentum going too!
