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.

My Favorite App
I love Charity Miles because it empowers me to do more than simply run, with every step I take. It runs smoothly in the background while I use a radio and map app simultaneously. I like keeping the notifications on. The app reminds me when I've stopped but forgot to turn it off and post my workout. My friends and I keep tabs on each other using the Teams feature.

Great concept, difficult accuracy
I love the idea of this app. I love that companies are willing to sponsor people for exercise, but the capture of the actual exercise is really troubled. When doing outside running or walking, it's relatively accurate. The calculation for indoor running is much more flighty and sometimes captures little to nothing at all. The app requires it to be on all the time to collect data and as a result, it eats battery pretty severely. I appreciate my energy becomes pennies that benefit others, but the app's accuracy has much to be desired.
I like Charity Miles
I like using Charity Miles because: 1) they challenge me to get out and walk, run or bike for a charity, 2) I can donate money just by exercising, 3) it helps me keep track of my mileage. Sure there’s glitch once in awhile, but Gene always says what it is and it gets fixed quickly. Try it, you just might like it!
