Force for Good become the latest venture to join Sport Tech Hub. Force for Good launches next month to connect individuals, charities and corporates on one platform to drive change and make a bigger impact globally.
At a time when needed most, Force for Good, the world’s first social impact network, today announces its official launch partnership with Sport Tech Hub by London Sport. London Sport exists to make London the most active city in the world, and Force for Good supports them on this mission, combining this with raising much needed funds for charity.
With hundreds of charity partners already enrolled pre-launch, including UNWomen UK, The Rainforest Trust and RE:ACT Disaster Response, Force for Good will change the way people give to charity. Whether it’s running, walking, swimming or cycling, for COVID-19, Mental Health, LGBTQIA+ or more, there’s something on the platform for everyone to take part in.
“Challenges and particularly sporting challenges are central to successful fundraising, so London Sport is the perfect partner for Force for Good. I’m personally passionate about the power sport has to drive change and make a positive impact in the world, and this partnership will help us support many more people turn their physical activity into giving back and driving change.”
Lucy Bennett-Baggs, Founder and CEO Force for Good
