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:
Wounded Warrior Project
Stand Up To Cancer
Habitat for Humanity
The Nature Conservancy
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Every Mother Counts
The Michael J. Fox Foundation
The World Food Programme
The Partnership For A Healthier America
Pencils of Promise
She’s The First
Nothing But Nets
Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America
the Ironman Foundation
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 🙂
