We like maps of where we ran. But we're inspired by a vision for where we're going.
Which is why we made Charity Miles: To help you change the world by earning corporate sponsorships for charity when you walk, run or bike.
Just choose a charity and hit the streets. As you walk, run or bike, the app will measure your distance and you will earn money for your charity: 10¢ per mile for bikers; 25¢ per mile for walkers and runners, all courtesy of our corporate sponsors like Timex Sports, Humana and Lifeway Foods.
But we're not just about earning money for charity. We're about carrying a purpose in our hearts and telling our stories through our actions.
Because we believe that action speaks louder than words. And changing the world is a team sport.
We'd love to have you on our team. Every mile matters!
*Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.1.2
Well I think this could be a great way to help those in need. I tried it for the first time the other day and it drained my batt so fast it was not even funny. Then it said I walked 1. something miles by 12pm well I wear a fitbit everyday and it has been accurate since I got it and it said I had walked 3 miles by 12pm. I think that once these little bugs are fixed this app would be amazing. Wish I could just manually input my miles BUT I understand why that's not a choice.
Have to share to earn credits
I didn't know you had to share your miles in order to credit the charities!!! That's 22 miles for nothing but my health :(. Also, the second time I DID share it showed up on my Facebook profile that I ran 5+ miles but it's not in my history on this app. I'm starting to not trust that the money is even being donated.
Knowing my runs are helping people motivates me to run harder. This app is wonderful. I'd run my heart out to help them all. No issues with the gps, just make sure you have a full battery for runs over 10 miles.
