Do Good While You Walk, Run, or Bike

One of the things I love about running races is that they often build in a charity component. So I was thrilled to learn from my friend Elena (during her Mom 2.0 Summit panel) about Charity Miles. It’s ridiculously easy to use; all you do is download and run the app, choose a charity, and press start when you’re ready to hit the pavement. The app tracks your distance and you earn money for your charity of choice with each passing mile (bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile). When you finish your workout, accept the sponsorship through the app and you’ve done your good deed.

Totally awesome right? My only challenge is that I usually run device free so it’s a matter of remembering to bring my phone with me. But I’m inspired and ready to log my miles for good!

    This is awesome. Thank you for sharing about this app. It will be perfect for random act of kindness/good deed challenge. For every day of 2013 I have been and will continue to perform at least one random act of kindness or good deed. I love this because now I can tie my running into my good deeds
