New App - Charity Miles

Today on Facebook, thanks to Kelly Pane, I learned about an awesome app called Charity Miles. Technology blows my mind on a daily basis and this app was no different. Charity Miles is a free app that allows you to raise money for the charity of your choice just by walking, running, or biking. Somehow (again, technology=mind blown), the app tracks your distance and you raise 10 cents/mile on a bike or 25 cents/mile on your feet. I used the app today on my run and it is super easy to navigate. Just choose a charity of your choice and click start. When you are finished with your workout click end. That’s it.

Free app + health benefits for you + money raised for charity. Is this not amazing???

Here’s a quick description of the charities you can choose:

1. Partnership for a Healthier America - Michelle Obama fighting childhood obesity
