Charity Miles: Give Back While You Get Fit

Getting fit is becoming a national phenomenon.  Everywhere you turn newspapers, magazines, TV and the internet are telling us all the benefits of getting fit.  Even though we know it is good for us, many lack the motivation to start their fitness journey.   Charity Miles is an app that can help you with that.  For every mile you bike or walk/run Charity Miles makes a donation (10 cents per mile you outdoor bike and 25 cents per mile you walk/run) to the charity of your choice.  There are several charities to choose from including Stand Up to Cancer, The Alzheimer's Association and Autism Speaks.

The app is very easy to use.  You set up a profile, select your charity, start the app and off you go.  The app keeps record of how far you go and will also let you set up "reminders" to let you know when it is time to work out.  This app also allows you to Tweet or put a post on Facebook regarding your progress.  So give your workout a purpose and download Charity Miles.
