    While you’re out there walking the beaches and cleaning the ocean, you can double up on your contribution and help financially as well. Charity Miles donates to a charity of your choice based on the miles you walk. It’s a win-win no matter how you look at it.

    Next time you're gearing up for your morning 4 mile jog around the neighborhood, don't forget to download this app first! You can turn those 4 miles a day into about $5 donated a week to a charity of your choice, just by completing your routine workout.

    Convert every mile you walk into 10 cents of charitable donation. It's a great way to contribute to a cause while you are on-the-go. This is especially good if you have a busy lifestyle but still feel you'd like to make a difference in the world.

    Every time you pay it forward, you will get twice as much in return. This charity app offers 2 benefits in 1 because it tracks your walking distance to keep you moving while also helping you earn money for your favorite charity with every step.

    Extreme rents and poor job security have robbed 1000's of people of their homes. Now you can help the homeless in your city even if you are low on cash. The only thing you have to do is track your running mileage and this app will convert it into donations to the charity of your choice.

    Helping others can make you feel good inside but what if there was a way to donate to charity and actually improve your health? This app gives you 10 cents for each mile you take on a bike and 25 cents for each mile you walk. Use that money and donate to the charity of your choice.

    Do you have the habit of running or cycling everyday? Why not convert them to an act of giving back to the needy. What more motivation do you need when you can donate 10 -25 cents to a worthy cause for every mile that you run or cycle.

    When you want to give back but don't have much to spare, the Charity Miles app can help in more than 1 way. Use the app to track your progress while walking, running or cycling. The more active you are, the more money you are able to raise for your favorite charity. You stay in shape while giving back to a special cause.

  • Walking for peace Jun 28, 2020

    By neatnicky
    I like to use the app on days when I’m miserable and nothing is going my way. Everyone wants to exercise more...until their shows are on and their day is going wrong. This way I am walking for peace. Every bad day for me is an awesome thing that happened for someone else in a bad situation who can’t solve their problem alone. “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together.” With this app I am not stuck alone on my bad days. I am moving towards a world that is a peaceful, helpful, united place for everyone. Peace is not a race, it’s a marathon. So walk, run, bike that marathon when and where you can in however many steps you can because somewhere out there on the app someone is running it with you.

    I’ve only just downloaded this app a few days ago, but I was super excited when I found out about it since I enjoy walks and walk dogs regularly. The concept behind it is great, but the app itself is laughable. It tells you nothing about how much you’ve raised, and there isn’t even a $ per mile explanation in the FAQ, which I find kind of suspicious. You’d think this is the most basic piece of information that all users would want to know, so to forget to include this seems intentional and kind of sketchy. What you get in your profile instead, is a total mile count, and a comically useless graph that displays the distribution of the miles by day/week/year. However, there are no labels on this graph so it is essentially useless. Al you can get from the graph is what days you exercised more/less than usual. TL;DR: developers, what is you thinking?!
  • Do yourself a favor and download this app Aug 27, 2020

    Unless you’re extremely fortunate, you likely know someone who would benefit from one of these charities. If you’re not an avid runner but you’d like to be, heres your motivation: a large corporate entity (think Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, etc) sponsors your run, meaning they donate based on the miles you run for the charity you select. Hurricane recently wrecked an area you love? Habitat for Humanity is there. Want to help hungry families get through the pandemic? Got you covered. Lose your dad to a glioblastoma like me and Meghan McCain? Stand Up To Cancer loves your miles. I leaned into running a lot when I lost my dad three years ago. The grief was just too big and running gave me whatever I needed at the moment: time to process, a quiet space to grieve, a distraction when it was too much. Charity Miles helps me feel like I’m giving back. And sure, these corporations could afford to donate thousands more than what I can run, but this gives me more purpose. That’s my sob story. Everybody’s got one. If you are looking for a kind, loving community to get you started on your journey, Charity Miles has you covered there too. Honestly, you could do worse.

    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!

    Is a great initiative. However, if it has a better way to track workouts then it would be more useful. Currently I have to use another app will using this to track my workouts and runs/ hikes. There is no way that I've found to look at the details of old workouts. Another issue I saw was that will I had a hike running in this app and the Samsung health app, this app went to sleep. After reopening the app it updated the distance but the time has stopped while the app was sleeping skewing metrics
  • Great but... Jun 24, 2019

    By Jaimee812
    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

  • Fabulous! Dec 29, 2018

    By SeekingGodAlone
    If I could give this app 20 stars I would. It has been a tremendous incentive to me to exercise more, thus helping build my old osteoporosis ridden bones while helping others at the same time. I use it every chance I get, while cleaning, doing yard work, etc. And every time I use it I know some good company with the smarts and heart will pay the charity of my choice for the miles I walk! It helps the companies because I’m certainly more apt to use their products to help support them in return. And there is even more inventive now that the app has started adding rewards for miles completed. It just seems to be a win-win-win all around. Kudos and thanks to the Charity Miles developers! Keep up the wonderful work.
  • Awesome app!! Apr 9, 2019

    By 😏Katelyn😏
    I’m only 15 years old and I love using this app on a daily. It encourages me to walk home from places rather than riding in a car (which actually helps reduce co2 gases as well). I’ve found that this app has been wonderful!! As a teenager, I can’t really give money to charities because I don’t have a job. This is my way of giving at such a young age and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. I encourage others around me to use it at school because I log about 1.5 miles everyday just walking to my classes alone. Yes, Charity miles isn’t always the most accurate on the mileage, but it’s still an outstanding app and I love the idea of it. Keep up the great work :)
  • Fantastic idea, app needs to be improved Apr 8, 2018

    By gldngaze
    The concept of this app is fantastic and really inspiring. Unfortunately, the user experience is definitely lacking. Here are some issues and recommendations: - no way to see how miles convert into an actual donation - is it $1 per mile? how much is a charity getting out of all this? - the screen that displays while activity is underway is completely useless - enlarge the tracker and timer so it’s in the center of the screen at least, display a map, or find something inspirational to display - it should be able to pick up GPS data from other activity tracking apps on the phone or not require the app to be running the entire time in order to track activity - see the Pacer app as an example of a third-party activity app that does this

    App crashed or something. I went for a walk. Part way through I checked and it seemed to be working. I went inside and when I pulled my phone out to end the walk - there was nothing. I tried to touch outside walk to see if it would take me back to my walk that I just ended. It started a new walk and was counting not only time but also distance from 0. I was sitting in a chair. Please tell me how to fix this.

    Removed a star because apps should improve over time, not fall apart. Great concept, but there are aggravating issues that weren't there years ago. Pledging is a pita, I won't try that again; miles track inaccurately by a lot; and if it glitches while trying to share, (which is what sponsors want us to do), you're out of luck.. One try, and if it doesn't work, too bad. I used to be able to click on the walk in my history and still share. Now I have several long walks I was not able to share.
  • Wish there were more activities to record for Apr 12, 2020

    By Al 👍🏼
    Hello. I’m trying to use this app for a miles competition with my family and the problem that I’m running into (haha) is that there are only three exercise options. While I do run, bike and walk, I also cross country ski and hike. Other people also kayak, swim, in-line skate, unicycle etc.) I would love it if there were more options. Also, the miles aren’t really equal. Biking ten miles on pavement is a lot easier than running ten trail miles. Shouldn’t running count for more or biking count for less? In another miles competition I was part of (called 100 miles in May) they had the miles calculated on a metabolically with running as the basis. Shouldn’t Charity Miles do something like that? Otherwise it’ll be a lot easier for the road bikers to rack up miles than the trail runners. (Just an example) Thanks. Hopefully those two things can be changed. Have a great day person reading this.

    When I first downloaded this app. It was giving accurate miles. After 15 to 20 days It started giving inaccurate miles. I did send the email to them.In their reply, they said everything was ok at their end. They suggested me caliber the gps. My other steps count app is giving me accurate miles and steps.I am really disappointed with this app. Therefore, I am deleting this app.
  • Apr 15, 2021

    By Chelsea Pachet
    I just walked for 45 minutes, it said I went 0.01 miles... If you walk with someone else who also has the app, the results are wildly different, for one will say 6 miles and the other only 2.5, painfully inaccurate. No option for kilometers in the app. It stops tracking progress on our leaderboard for weeks at a time even though I'm active everyday and I've been on Wifi and LTE connections. This app apparently doesn't work with Android devices. Disappointing.
  • May 4, 2021

    By Diane Slagle
    Reviewers are correct, great idea but no tech support. If the app malfunctions (which is not unusual) an email may go unanswered for several days. Any conversation has replies by different people and they don't always read through the thread. I have almost 19,000 Charity Miles logged and will keep using but lack of support is very frustrating. Step counter goes down and up, not accurate or reliable.

    App restarts miles after phone is locked.. After turning on tracking for the app and walk and lock my phone. Aftee distance walked, I activate my phone and app restarts count and doesn't track progress.
  • REMOVE AUTISM SPEAKS Jun 20, 2020

    By NinjaNerd757
    I do not have any gripes with this apps features, but I am appalled that after all of the outcry regarding the misdeeds of Autism Speaks from people who are actually on the Autism Spectrum such as myself, the 'charity' remains as a place which people can donate to! Please open your ears to the demographic this abominable group claims to represent and allow us to send money elsewhere, please! If you would truly like to support people with A.S.D., please consider allowing users to donate to the Autism Self Advocacy Network, a group which is actually supervised by Autistic individuals who care about or individuality and well-being, NOT in finding a cure, which is an incredibly hurtful action, as we do not feel a need to be cured, but rather, we need the opportunity to thrive as non-neurotypical in a majority neurotypical world. I am not angry with the developers, as their heart is in the right place and there is so much good coming from this app from other charities, but I am incredibly distraught - please fix this:(

  • Don’t know what happened! Jan 1, 2021

    By ramacharaca
    I’d like to begin by saying what a pleasure it is to be able to contribute towards the improvement of other lives by enjoying one of my favorite hobbies! I have hardly had any issues with this app in the past but, for some reason today I logged in and places the phone in my pocket while I was running and for some odd reason only register a small fraction of the distance I ran. Maybe it could be that we users need to ensure the app remains open as it is unable to run on the background (I have an iPhone) while we are using it! Good look and cheers to all of you great souls !

    I'm excited to get moving! I love his app! Me and my daughter whose only 4yr really enjoy watching the numbers go up for charity! I power walk at the mall and she rides in the stroller and we love to check the miles as we meet the halfway points! ❤️ excellent tool, I really enjoy the simplicity of the interface. Simple is best. You open the app select start and Go! Hit finish when you're done! No nonsense. Thank you for the chance to give back, with my time. Our time is valuable, I give my first to he Lord and I'm glad to give some to help someone else in need. 🙂 #TeamHabitatForHumanity

  • Wonderful App with Purpose...One Flaw Aug 21, 2018

    By Delmonte3161
    I am a huge fan of the Charity Miles app. I love the purpose behind it and am extra motivated by the opportunity to use my exercise for good. I love the podcast! However, indoor tracking is woefully wonky. It is often behind in tracking, or completely freezes or registers nothing/next to nothing. Talk about a let down when you have put in a bunch of miles, and then find that the app has only tracked .125 of a mile. Outdoor tracking is pretty spot-on and consistent, but when the extreme temps drive us indoors, this is where the app is lacking. The actual problem is likely with the device being used and the motion sensors. However, a backup or optional method of tracking would be so helpful!
  • Great app! could use improvement Feb 9, 2018

    By Silver Supertramp
    This app is really motivating me to get out and expertise more than I already do. My school made a team on the app, and so the leaderboards are a fun aspect to have. I love that I can give money to national parks when I’m out enjoying nature. The app is also very useful for measuring distances of trips you take every day as well as the exact time it takes you to get to your destination. It’s fun to get to know the stats of my home town. I do wish that the interface was easier to use and more informative. The information that you can access is extremely limited. You can’t see any of your friend’s profiles, let alone their best times or fastest times. You can’t even see anything about a workout you did except the distance after you finish it. I would love to have more stats for me and my friends. Maybe fastest mph on a bike, or longest distance walked etc. also as it stands it is very easy to just get in a car and say you rode your bike. If the app could show the average speed you went throughout the workout it would eliminate this because people would easily be able to see you cheated.
  • Amazing concept, sub-par execution Feb 8, 2018

    By Menchie '97
    I absolutely love the concept of the app, but the execution isn’t that great. Indoor tracking is extremely inaccurate and I wish it was compatible with my fitbit. Whenever I go grocery shopping, I always turn on this app but even if I spend 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours inside it will still sometimes says that I went 0.0 miles which is always upsetting since I don’t notice until I’m done. It would also be nice if I could sync the app with my fitbit because I always walk at least 5-6 miles daily since I work in retail. They also used to show how much money you were donating to the charity while you were exercising, and I wish they would bring it back.
  • Love the Idea Jul 10, 2018

    By Abc123ChickenDoodle
    I love being able to earn money for national parks while doing what I would be doing throughout the day anyway (walking, biking, hiking, etc), however I find it really annoying that unless I log into the app 2 or 3 times a day, it won’t record workouts. The other day I did a 2 mike walk, completed it in the app, but didn’t open the app again for the rest of the day. It didn’t end up recording my miles, and I had to start my “streak” over again. This literally happens on every workout- unless I go back in and do another one, it doesn’t record the first. Would be great if they fixed these little bugs.

Here are some issues and recommendations: - no way to see how miles convert into an actual donation - is it $1 per mile? how much is a charity getting out of all this? - the screen that displays while activity is underway is completely useless - enlarge the tracker and timer so it’s in the center of the screen at least, display a map, or find something inspirational to display - it should be able to pick up GPS data from other activity tracking apps on the phone or not require the app to be running the entire time in order to track activity - see the Pacer app as an example of a third-party activity app that does this

    This app constantly logs me out and the mileage tracker is wildly inaccurate. But I guess it's good for charities that the app overestimates the miles.

    I got this app as a way to create a group and have that group track miles for a charity, which is what this app is supposed to do, right?!! It doesn’t. It doesn’t track any of my miles within the group, or even on the main page; just 0 miles, 0 streak, 0% inaccurate. I can only see them on my personal page. The help section says maybe it’s because my internet is slow; then why would my miles be logged on my personal page and not in the team?? Contacted support but I was told I should use the app and not Strava; I AM using the app!?? Other things that would be nice include the ability to see who’s in my group, how much money my team and myself have raised for a charity.

    Removed a star because apps should improve over time, not fall apart. Great concept, but there are aggravating issues that weren't there years ago. Pledging is a pita, I won't try that again; miles track inaccurately by a lot; and if it glitches while trying to share, (which is what sponsors want us to do), you're out of luck.. One try, and if it doesn't work, too bad. I used to be able to click on the walk in my history and still share. Now I have several long walks I was not able to share.

    Hello. I’m trying to use this app for a miles competition with my family and the problem that I’m running into (haha) is that there are only three exercise options. While I do run, bike and walk, I also cross country ski and hike. Other people also kayak, swim, in-line skate, unicycle etc.) I would love it if there were more options. Also, the miles aren’t really equal. Biking ten miles on pavement is a lot easier than running ten trail miles. Shouldn’t running count for more or biking count for less? In another miles competition I was part of (called 100 miles in May) they had the miles calculated on a metabolically with running as the basis. Shouldn’t Charity Miles do something like that? Otherwise it’ll be a lot easier for the road bikers to rack up miles than the trail runners. (Just an example) Thanks. Hopefully those two things can be changed. Have a great day person reading this.

    Reviewers are correct, great idea but no tech support. If the app malfunctions (which is not unusual) an email may go unanswered for several days. Any conversation has replies by different people and they don't always read through the thread. I have almost 19,000 Charity Miles logged and will keep using but lack of support is very frustrating. Step counter goes down and up, not accurate or reliable.

    Doesn't always work right....missing miles...seems to have restarted my mileage total when I updated. It hasn't posted this last year's miles at all,...so still glitchy.

    I think it's a great idea, but it doesn't track your miles very well. Please fix this, creators!

    App crashed or something. I went for a walk. Part way through I checked and it seemed to be working. I went inside and when I pulled my phone out to end the walk - there was nothing. I tried to touch outside walk to see if it would take me back to my walk that I just ended. It started a new walk and was counting not only time but also distance from 0. I was sitting in a chair. Please tell me how to fix this.

    When I first downloaded this app. It was giving accurate miles. After 15 to 20 days It started giving inaccurate miles. I did send the email to them.In their reply, they said everything was ok at their end. They suggested me caliber the gps. My other steps count app is giving me accurate miles and steps.I am really disappointed with this app. Therefore, I am deleting this app.

    I just walked for 45 minutes, it said I went 0.01 miles... If you walk with someone else who also has the app, the results are wildly different, for one will say 6 miles and the other only 2.5, painfully inaccurate. No option for kilometers in the app. It stops tracking progress on our leaderboard for weeks at a time even though I'm active everyday and I've been on Wifi and LTE connections. This app apparently doesn't work with Android devices. Disappointing.

  • REMOVE AUTISM SPEAKS Jun 20, 2020

    By NinjaNerd757
    I do not have any gripes with this apps features, but I am appalled that after all of the outcry regarding the misdeeds of Autism Speaks from people who are actually on the Autism Spectrum such as myself, the 'charity' remains as a place which people can donate to! Please open your ears to the demographic this abominable group claims to represent and allow us to send money elsewhere, please! If you would truly like to support people with A.S.D., please consider allowing users to donate to the Autism Self Advocacy Network, a group which is actually supervised by Autistic individuals who care about or individuality and well-being, NOT in finding a cure, which is an incredibly hurtful action, as we do not feel a need to be cured, but rather, we need the opportunity to thrive as non-neurotypical in a majority neurotypical world. I am not angry with the developers, as their heart is in the right place and there is so much good coming from this app from other charities, but I am incredibly distraught - please fix this:(

    Great idea, but currently buggy to the point of being unworkable. I try to begin recording a session and the app crashes 9 times out of 10.

    I really like the concept of this app. But every time I try to track miles that I'm walking or biking the app crashes or stops working.

    Doesn't accurately record steps or distance. I use samsung health and strava to get a comparison. Thousands of steps off, which in turn cost the charities donations.

    App crashes during runs and reset timing. No record at all. Happened multiple times.
