Charity Miles App: Are you using it?!

One of my runner safety tips is to run with a phone. You never know when you may need it out on a run, so it’s best to have one on your person. So, if you’re running with an iPhone or Android phone, you should also download and amazing app called Charity Miles. This is a free app that earns money for charity when you walk, run, or bike.

You simple swipe which charity you’d like to exercise for, put the phone somewhere on your body and off you go! Bikers earn 10 cents a mile and walkers and runners earn 25 cents a mile. Charity miles has an initial sponsorship pool of $1,000,000, so let’s help use up that pool! The app requires access to the GPS on your phone, so you must be outside for it to work.

There are many charities available and the list has grown over the last few months. I run for Every Mother Counts and feel honored to be helping. After you’ve finished your run, walk, or bike, you have to accept sponsorship by sharing your Charity Miles impact on Facebook. This helps spread the message that we can all do something so easy to help.

Many of us workout outside anyway, so why not download this app? Why not help? I say there isn’t an answer to why not… go download it friends!

Have you run for Charity Miles?

    I really need to be better about bringing my phone with me when I run. It’s just one more thing to carry or strap onto me haha but when it comes to safety, there’s really no excuses.
