Charity Miles is a free iPhone/Android app that enables individuals to raise funds for charity simply by walking, running or biking. Launched over 3 years ago, the app quickly became a fitness favorite, and winner of several awards, including the SXSW People's Choice Award and Women's Running Magazine's Best Overall App, and earned recognition by Men's Fitness as one of their Game Changers of The Year.
Walkers and runners can earn up to 25¢ per mile, and bikers earn 10¢ per mile to benefit the Alzheimer's Association, all courtesy of Charity Miles' corporate partners who sponsor the miles, such as Timex Sports, Humana and Lifeway Foods. The app's more than 100,000 users log in, work out, and share that they've been active and raised funds for their favorite charity through social media. The Charity Miles app is available as a free download. For complete information on this charitable donation program, go to www.charitymiles.org.
