Inspired by Meg Biram’s fitness post introducing me to the Charity Miles App, I wanted to get moving and give back to a good cause … all at the same time! It’s as simple as downloading the app, creating a user profile and lacing up your favorite sneakers. Did I mention that you never have to open up your wallet either?!?!
Before you begin your walk, run, or bike ride, open the app on your smart phone & select a participating charitable organization. There are over 26 to choose from!
Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers/runners earn 25¢ a mile.
As you get moving, you can see exactly what you’re giving back to the organization you’ve selected. This week, I choose to walk for ASPCA and helped donate puppy & kitten vaccinations by simply doing what I do every day … walking the dog!
This pretty little face won’t let me forget to get moving each morning, afternoon and night!
One of my favorite parts of utilizing the Charity Miles App is the ability to join a team. Not only does it help motivate you to get moving, but it’s inspiring to belong to a group of people committed towards giving back! Join me on #TEAMMODISH, as well as team #GSD (get shit done) that Meg Biram created.
Since I took this picture yesterday, my brother “got moving” and logged over 2 miles today snowshoeing back in Wisconsin with the dogs! That definitely means I have no excuse to get walking.
