Let's Raise Awareness of the Book with a Fitness Challenge

No matter if you're a seasoned runner or amateur walker, we'd love you to join The Companion's Gate to Gate Challenge, uniting the fandom and to help raise awareness of Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom's Book Launch.

After speaking to many of you, a common theme you shared was how your physical health is tied to your mental health. It's like what Amanda always says, to be at the top of her game as a Director, she needs to be fighting fit. You asked us for some accountability and motivation - so let's do this together!

🌌 What's the Gate to Gate Challenge?

According to our calculations, it's 8,802 miles between the Cheyenne Mountain Stargate and the Ancient Outpost Stargate. This is a whole team challenge, so enlist now to help The Companion team accumulate miles by May 12th. You can walk, run, or cycle to contribute.

🏃‍♂️ How to Participate:

  1. Register: Sign up here to officially enlist in the challenge. It's completely free to join!
  2. Record Your Miles: Every walk, run, roll (heck you can alpine ski) counts! Log your miles as you always do in your app such as Strava, Nike Run Club, or your Apple Watch.
  3. Share on Socials, Whatsapp, and Group Texts: After each activity, share with your friends on how important your physical and mental health is to you and join the movement (details below).
