Running and Charity
As runners, we’re a very charitable lot. We run in races that support causes we believe in and we help bring awareness to those causes. It’s all good stuff.
Now, thanks to Charity Miles, a clever iPhone/Android app, you can turn your daily training runs into runs that benefit charity.
The premise behind Charity Miles is simple. You download the app onto your phone. When you go out for your next run, turn on the GPS-enabled app, and it will track your distance. Each mile run results in a 25 cent donation to one of a number of reputable, well-known charities. When you’ve finished your run, you accept the donation from your sponsor by sharing your run on Facebook or Twitter. You’re spreading the word about your cause, and about Charity Miles.
Who You Can Support
Here’s a short video that demonstrates how Charity Miles works.
My Challenge To You
The premise behind Charity Miles is so simple, I can’t imagine why we don’t all use it every day when we run. Therein lies my challenge to you – I challenge you to download and use Charity Miles every time you run for the next 14 days. Just think of all the good you can do for others, while you are running and doing good for yourself.
