Charity Miles is an iPhone and Android App that people can use to raise funds for nonprofit orgs based simply on their everyday exercise. Just select a charity – there are more than 20, including Wounded Warrior Project, Feeding America, Every Mother Counts, Autism Speaks, Stand Up To Cancer, and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research – and as you walk, bike or run, the app tracks your distance. Bikers earn 10 cents per mile for their charity; walkers and runners earn 25 cents per mile. The donation is made to the charity through corporate sponsors of Charity Miles.

Since launching in early 2012, more than 100,000 users have helped to raise over $350,000 for the partner charities, including “over $127,000 for autism, cancer, and Parkinson's research; $50,000 for wounded veterans, $50,000 to protect nature and animals, and educated over 554 girls for a year.”



Charity Miles is a founding partner of #GivingTuesday and a great way for any athlete to make their miles count for more than just themselves.

Visit and download the app for the iPhone or Android devices.
