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.

Used to love this!
I've been using this app for a year now and it's gone through numerous updates. The most recent seems to have cut out the ability for the app to run in the background a accurately monitor my distance. I ran a mile this morning and looked down at my phone and it only logged .32 miles! I felt like the charity I chose was just gypped of what little bit I can contribute through this app. It's an awesome idea and I loved the app until recently. I hope they can fix this glitch. Also not a fan of having to constantly turn on "Always" for my location services. It should work on "While Using" because well, I am using the app. A little annoyance but not nearly as disappointing as the inaccurate mileage log!
My Favorite App
Whether training for races, taking morning jogs (treadmill or outdoors) or mowing my lawn, using this app is a must for me. If you take your phone with you for music or tracking when you walk or run, you have no excuse not to download and use this app. It's a simple app to use and often provides me with that extra bit of motivation not to skip a run. And it helps support some great causes that deserve your support.
Make it the best app you can!
I have not tried to use this app on a stationary device so as far as accuracy there I can’t say. But I am currently doing cardiac rehab and I think it is great that in doing the things I need to do for my health also has the ability to help others. And anything in addition to regular donations for causes such as wounded warrior project is a plus right? I am doing the rehab ether way! So Max Stars for you! Keep it up!
