Reviews

Reviewer: Diabetes Forecast Magazine, American Diabetes Association (ADA), USA
Review: "Exercise does a body good, but with this app you could put your workout to even better use. Pick one of nearly a dozen charities, click whether you plan to run, walk, or bike, and get moving. The app tracks your distance, and the Charity Miles company enlists sponsors to be able to reward your chosen charity with a donation for your hard work."

Review: "When you’re out exercising, you can help us save lives a mile at a time. Charity Miles is a new app for iPhones and Android phones that enables people to earn money for charity simply by walking, running or biking. Donors have already committed an initial US$1 million to back every mile 'earned' with the Charity Miles app within a year. We think this is very cool."

Reviewer: Autism Speaks, USA
Review: "Charity Miles is a new iPhone and Android app that enables people to earn money for Autism Speaks while walking, running or biking. The app allows people to earn money for ten of the world’s top charities, including Autism Speaks. The app is free, and simple to use. No special event is required. People just launch the app, where they can choose Autism Speaks, and either walk, run or bike. The selected charities of the app then earns money for every mile covered. Walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile; bikers earn 10¢ per mile, all up to an initial $1,000,000. Charity Miles LLC is backing the initial $1,000,000 and issuing a worldwide challenge to see if people can earn it for the charities within a year."
