Wouldn't it be great if your miles on the road (whether on our bikes or on our feet) counted for a little money as well as contributing to our overall health? They can! Charity Miles is an organization that has partnered up with sponsors to pay bikers 10cents per mile and runners/walkers 25 Cents per mile. Organizations that you could raise money for include:
Here's an idea: Grad a group of friends on your next weekend ride or training run, download the app, and do what you always ways do. This time, by the time your done, you all will have contributed your sweat and hardwork towards an organization of your choosing! How exciting is that?!?!
Let us know what rides/runs you organize and what organizations your chose so we can feature you on our website. On our Facebook page: TriHardLiveEasy or our hashtag #THLECharityMiles (TrihardliveeasyCharityMiles) on instagram.
Today is a great day to start making a difference: #everymilematters
What is Charity Miles?
Charity Miles is a free iPhone and Android app that enables people to earn corporate sponsorships for charity while walking, running or biking. We are supported by awesome companies like Humana, Johnson & Johnson, Timex Sports and Kenneth Cole.
Ready to become a sponsored athlete? Simply turn on the app, choose a charity, and press start. As you exercise, we'll track your distance and the money earned. When you're finished, accept your sponsorship, spread the word, and we'll send you a note confirming your good work.
How it Works
It's as easy as this: get moving. Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile, up to our initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.
