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 3.0.3
-Fixes issue for some iPhone 6 users when other apps are running
Great purpose, mediocre performance
Let me just say that I love the opportunity this app provides when it comes to being able to give money to charity through exercise. That said, I have been repeatedly disappointed by the app and its poor functionality. The past few days when I run it hasn't even registered a step whatsoever. I will say that I have used the app for a year and have had many runs in which it has worked correctly, however, I hate to think how many charity dollars are being lost nationwide when this happens to hundreds or thousands of other users of the app. It's an amazing idea and accomplishment, but it needs to work better.
Great app to exercise with!
I've been walking and running with Charity Miles for the past couple of years and it's great! The partnerships that they've setup are fantastic and it feels good to be able to contribute to charities just by exercising.
The new UI is much cleaner and easier to use. The first iteration of the UI overhaul introduced a bug related to running the app in the background but they've fixed it in the latest release.
Their staff is also very responsive to any and all feedback.
I have used this app for quite some time now but recently it hasn't registered my runs. I keep getting "Do you want to resume your workout"? My phone goes into sleep mode and I'm thinking that's what makes it not register that I'm actually running. I got an email a bit ago about a bug with iPhones 4, 5 and 5c. I have an iPhone 5s so not sure if it's included in that or not but I'm hoping that it will start working again so I can help all these wonderful charities like I have in the past.
