Charity Miles is a free phone app that lets you earn money for charity by running, walking, or biking. The funds are donated by corporate sponsors like Humana and Johnson & Johnson. The app won SXSW’s 2013 People’s Choice Award.
Trina, one of our FULL Creative trainers, discovered Charity Miles and signed up to support AIDS organization (RED) and Stand Up to Cancer. This past weekend, she walked five miles to benefit the two organizations. (The app gives you a choice of several nonprofits to help.)
Exercise has all kinds of benefits for the people who do it. Now your effort can help others, too! Earn money for every mile and do good while you get fit.
