First of all, I want to say that this post is not sponsored by any company. I write this post, because I just simply like the idea of it and hope with sharing the info, more people will do it!
I recently heard about the app “Charity Miles“. It’s a free app and if you turn it on while running, walking or biking, you will raise money! It’s that simple. Just download the app, then simply turn on the app, choose the charity of your choice, press start and start walking, running or biking. It tracks your miles and based on your distance raises money for your charity! Bikers earn 10 Cents a mile and walkers/runners earn 25 Cents a mile, up to their initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool. After you finished your workout you get a confirmation email!
I use this app almost daily, either on my runs or while walking with my daughter. I do these workouts anyway, so why not turning on an app and raise some money! I started earlier this month and so far we raised $5.55. It doesn’t seem much, but over time it will add up.
My goal is to raise $250 in 2015, which is 1000 miles (walking or running). I’m battling a knee injury right now and I’m behind my goal, but hope to start running soon again and then catch up.
How about you? Have you run for charity?
