While the world adopted a new lexicon around COVID-19, one of the terms that never stuck with the Ulman Foundation was “social distancing.”
Maryland-based Ulman supports young cancer patients who have long had to limit their exposure to others. Program staff adopted “physically distanced” ways to connect patients socially such as online game nights, card-making campaigns, and appropriately spaced, parking lot parties.
When the development team saw this, they knew that this approach could inspire others. That led them to create MOVE Maryland, a live-streamed event that will bring together more than 50 nonprofits to create an interactive, fitness-focused peer-to-peer fundraising event with instructor-led classes in spin, barre, Tae Bo, and family boot camp on November 7th.
