Walk, Run or Bike = $ for a Charity

Do you walk, run, or bike?


I am so excited about my recent find!  And I know you will be, too.

Along the same concept behind Zumba’s Great Calorie Drive, I found something that we can do to improve our fitness and give back at the same time!

First, before I continue, please go to the App store on your phone and download the App called, “Charity Miles” (it’s FREE!)

Yes, charities are able to cash in on your exercise!

Talk about a win-win!

When you walk, run, or bike (since I just found this, I’m not sure if you would be able to count your steps at Zumba as walking), you can log into your app and choose a charity of your choice to donate to!  (If Zumba doesn’t count, I hope that many of us will start to think about places we can walk to – like Zumba – or add more walking, running, and biking into our fitness routines – especially as summer is around the corner!)

The charities you can choose from are:

  • Stand Up to Cancer (standup2cancer.org)
  • Achilles International
  • The Michael J. Fox Foundation (Parkinson’s Research)
  • Red (to benefit The Global Fund)
  • WFP (World Food Programme)
  • The Nature Conservancy (nature.org)
  • ASPCA (aspca.org)
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (fighting blood cancers)
  • Partnership for a Healthier America
  • Pencils of Promise
  • girlup (United Nations Foundation)
  • Shot @ Life (United Nations Foundation)
  • NothingButNets.net (United Nations Foundation)
  • Ironman Foundation
  • DoSomething.org
  • Vision Spring
  • everymothercounts
  • Feeding America
  • Autism Speaks
  • Wounded Warrior Project

How does it work:

  1. Download the free app: Charity Miles
  2. Select the new app on your phone
  3. Select a charity
  4. (WE MIGHT HAVE A TEAM FOR MCHALIE – Pending approval…you would log into our team with a code, and you would be donating to the charity of your choice in her honor 🙂  I will let you know as soon as I hear from the organization.)
  5. Start walking, running, or biking (you’ll choose one on the app.)
  6. $0.25/mile will be donated for walking on running or $0.10/mile will be donated for biking.

I hope this inspires you to continue to be active or even more active!  I’m already considering going for a walk (or run) just to try out this new app and donate to a charity!

Fit for Life!  It’s a lifestyle change.
