What if walking, jogging or biking around your neighborhood did more good than just getting you into shape? What if exercising also helped you raise money for your favorite charity? Downloading the Charity Miles app, which is available in the App Store and on Google Play and is sponsored by companies like Timex Sports, Humana and Lifeway Foods, can help you do just that. When you launch the app, choose a charity you want to help, then press start. As you exercise, the app tracks your distance and the money you’ve earned. For every mile you walk or run, you’ll earn 25 cents; for every mile you bike, you’ll earn 10 cents. After you’re done with your workout and accept your sponsorship, the app will send you a note to confirm your good work. Charity Miles believes actions speak louder than words, and it wants you to tell your story through those actions. So next time you decide to head out for a jog, remember to check into Charity Miles first.
