#CharityMiles – The App Every Runner (and Walker) Should Have

I recently learned about the app Charity Miles (even though they launched in 2012) from Emelia at Half Crazy Mama. It is a free app that you can download, then choose a charity, press start, run and money is donated to that charity for every mile you run. You can run for the same charity all the time or even switch it up every run. How easy is that!!!

Here is a list of the charities you can choose from to run:

Stand Up To Cancer
ASPCA
Habitat for Humanity
Alzheimer’s Association
The Nature Conservancy
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Every Mother Counts
Autism Speaks
Soles4Souls
Special Olympics
DoSomething.org

The World Food Programme
Girl Up
The Partnership For A Healthier America
Pencils of Promise

Achilles International
Nothing But Nets

the Ironman Foundation
Team RWB

You can also bike ride for Charity Miles too!!. Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile.

I was not approached, sponsored or asked to write this post. I am sharing this information because one person running miles for a charity doesn’t equal a lot of money donated, but with a bunch of us on board we make a significant impact!!! Members have raised about $700,000 so far! I love this amazing running community so much!!! I encourage everyone to share this information and app with their friends 🙂

To download app or learn more you can visit the Charity Miles website here.

Do you have the Charity Miles app? If not will you download it?
