Charity Miles

Charity Miles is a free iPhone/Android app that enables individuals to raise funds for charity simply by walking, running or biking. Launched over 4 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 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. So far Charity Miles members have earned over $2 million for charity. Each year they pay out their annual sponsorship pool (currently $500,000) to their charity partners in proportion to the miles done for each. The app's more than 150,000 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.


* From June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 Charity Miles app users who select the Alzheimer's Association as their charity of choice can earn up to $.25 per mile while walking or running and $.10 per mile while biking, which will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association, up to Charity Mile's cap of $500,000 courtesy of Charity Miles' sponsor organizations; then the cap is paid out in proportion to the miles done for each.
