Charity Miles


What is Charity Miles?
A free smart phone app, Charity Miles tracks exercise milage while allowing users to raise money for charities. Cyclists earn 10 cents per mile while walkers and runners can earn 25 cents a mile!

How to Use the Charity Miles App:
Compatible for iPhone and Android, users can download the free Charity Miles app from the App Store. Once users log in, they will swipe until they find the Special Olympics logo and then select as charity of choice. Users then select their type of exercise depending if they are walking, running, or cycling, and then click “Start.” After logging exercise mileage, users can post their work out details to Facebook and Twitter to show how much they’ve raised for Special Olympics!

Support Special Olympics athletes every time you run, walk, or cycle by downloading the free Charity Miles app TODAY!
