Charity Miles is a free app that enables you to earn money for charity whenever you walk, run or bike. Anytime. Anywhere.
Since our founding in 2012, Charity Miles has helped earn nearly $3 million for amazing charities, thanks to the support of our corporate sponsors.
Now we have a brand NEW and innovative way to raise even more money for your charity than ever before.
Through Charity Miles, you can create your own Pledge Page where your friends can sponsor you… even if you’re not doing a marathon or race.
The more your friends pledge, the more money you can earn. Literally UNLIMITED.
Many people raise money by doing things like marathons and 10Ks. But now you can do it year-round, even if you’re not doing a race and WITHOUT having to pester your friends.
Of course, it’s great to reach out to ask your friends to sponsor you personally.
But just by sharing your Charity Miles on social media will subtly give your friends the opportunity to find your Pledge Page and throw some support your way… WITHOUT you having to reach out every time. It basically does the fundraising FOR you!
Plus when your friends sponsor you, they’re entered into a drawing to win cool prizes from our sponsors, like a trip to Hawaii.
And, the more money you earn for your charity, the more chances you’ll have to win cool prizes (and even more money for your charity) from our sponsors too.
Charity Miles also now syncs with Strava and your phone’s Health Kit (and therefore, any devices you have connected to them).
This enables you to turn all the miles you’re going to walk, run or bike anyway into money for charity. Anytime. Anywhere.
If you’re the kind of person who is already raising money for charity, this will help you raise even more money for them.
If you’re the kind of person that wants to make an impact, but maybe marathons aren’t your thing… or you can’t make your charity’s walking event, or you don’t feel comfortable asking your friends to support you, we’ve got you covered.
You can use any fitness tracker on the app store to track your miles. But if you’re the kind of person that wants to make a difference, Charity Miles will turn those miles into money for charity.

Ratings and Reviews
I liked the older version better
This app was great until I updated it about a year ago. The older version allowed me to go back and look at my past times and see if I made any progress on my speed. This newer version doesn't let me do that. Now I feel like I need to use two apps to track my runs as opposed to just one. I've tried to contact the developers multiple times but I have not gotten any response. Regardless, I use it every time I go on runs. I had to re-download it when I factory reset my iPhone and now it won't log me in through Facebook due to some internal error. I hope that deleting the app and reinstalling will solve that issue, but, if not, could someone please solve this?? I really like the idea that I am giving back by doing something I was going to do anyways.
App & Podcast
Charity Miles, is an amazing app that allows us to log miles for the charity of our choice. There are tons of charities to choose from, and you do not have to “BE” anything special. It does not cost you a dime! You can join teams—be competitive if you wish too!
There is also a podcast which is an inspiration. It shares incredible feats, great ideas, perseverance, and dedication can make the impossible—possible. If you listen when you do housework—you’ll end up taking your dogs for a walk, running a 5k, and maybe even qualifying for Boston one day. It discusses real life struggles leading to great things—not in a solitary room, but on busy streets across the country! Give it a listen—you will not be disappointed!
So I absolutely love this app. The interface is great. It’s super easy to use. You get to choose between loads of charities to be walking/running/biking for.
The only issue that I’m finding with this, and maybe I just haven’t figured out how to do it yet, but I can’t connect the app to be tracked through my smart watch.
Here’s why it’s a problem: I run on a treadmill and like to catch up on my series while I run, so my phone sits on the treadmill not moving. Well the app thinks I’m not moving... heck, I’ve even had it in my hand when I’m walking on the treadmill and it still thought I wasn’t moving. I’m not sure how sensitive the motion detection is, but it’s just mildly frustrating that there’s no way to track my miles when I want to use my phone for something during my indoor walk/run
