Race Around the World

We are thrilled to announce that with team sponsors, sponsorships, and donations, we raised over $100,000 to support the NOMV Mission. 

A special thank you to our 2024 sponsors: Dechra, Cubex, Chubby Dog Nation, AZPetVet, Instinct, Metropolitan Veterinary Associates, Happy Hounds, PSIvet, CareVet, Modeus, Full Slice, Wedgewood, and Huntington Practice Finance.

Check back next May to see what we have in store for Race Around the World 2025!


What is the NOMV Race Around the World?

The Race Around the World is an annual fundraiser to support and raise awareness for NOMV. Participants sign up online and then track their activities throughout the month. Participants also raise money through their personal fundraising page!

When is the NOMV Race Around the World?

Race Around the World will now take place throughout the month of May for Mental Health Awareness Month!

How do I sign up to participate?

You can sign up now by visiting charity.pledgeit.org/RATW24

What integrations are there?

PledgeIt is currently integrated with Strava!

Is there merchandise?

NOMV wants to make our Race Around the World personalized to fit your needs. Your registration fee goes to cover the costs of the race and to NOMV’s programs with no extras taken out for t-shirts, etc. If you want merch, we will have a selection of items now available in the NOMV Shop!

What is the money raised used for?

NOMV is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Everything we accomplish relies on the generosity of our donors. The funds raised are allocated by the NOMV Volunteer Board of Directors based on programmatic needs. Because the Race Around the World is such a large part of our annual income, we use the funds raised to support several programs including: support grants to individuals in crisis, educational programming, peer support programs, and special projects like CLEAR Blueprint and NOMV Ambassadors.

Are there winners?

Technically everyone who participates is a winner because all participants develop their wellbeing while simultaneously raising awareness and funds for a common cause with thousands of other people across the globe! But, yes, there are also actual winners. Throughout the race there is a visible leaderboard that lets us know which individuals and teams are raising the most money and which are racking up the most miles for our mission.
