Mileage Rewards for Health, Fitness & Fun
Plus 3 Network is a mobile, GPS-enhanced social network that
connects people with corporate sponsors and worthwhile causes on a
lasting journey of personal fitness and charitable giving.
Making It Count
Plus 3 makes the world a healthier and better place by helping its
members lead healthier better lives. Plus 3 Network will count millions
of daily rides, runs, walks, or swims as mileage-rewarded fundraising.
We are the social network that actively manages, motivates, validates,
and rewards our members for participating in fitness activities. Plus 3
links our members with corporate sponsors and non-profits in a shared
goal of worthwhile giving. Making It Count is our phrase for this
process of bringing people, causes, and sponsors together for the good
In 2007 Rick, Jon, and Steve -- three of the guys who formed a sports
marketing company named GaleForce in the early 1990's -- had an idea to
create a bicycling-rewards program to encourage people to ride more and
get out of their cars . Rick called up a guy named Joe, who was working
in the cell phone world and had worked with Rick, to share The Idea.
The three sports-biz-guys-plus one-tech-guy team shaped The Idea into a
global vision that includes gadgets and the internet to build a system
that motivates healthy lifestyles by collecting exercise activities
and, with the financial support of Sponsors, Plus 3 puts a value on it
-- literally turning "sweat equity into social capital."
What we see: our future is about Making It Count. We plan to
collect exercise activities from all kinds of devices, indoors and out,
from hand-entered to GPS to pedometers, treadmills, and cell phones,
building up a partner network of Sponsors and Causes so we can all work
together towards that great Win/Win/Win: Fitness + Community +
But Why Plus 3? Why not Plus 4 or Plus 11?
Well, like a good name for a rock band, there are many answers,
some true, and some a yarn. Stick with us and we'll unveil a few. For
Spinal Tap fans, we are just "One Louder" than plain old 3...
Meanwhile, let's Rock!
