We’re excited to announce that Girls on the Run is now a featured charity with Charity Miles!

Charity Miles partners with national non-profit organizations to help stakeholders easily support their causes.   Charity Miles is a free mobile app for iPhones and Androids that empowers users to earn money for charity while running, biking or walking.  Runners and walkers earn $.25 per mile and bikers earn $.10 per mile.  At the end of the challenge term, Charity Miles donates money to the causes based on what each has earned.   Click here to go to their webpage and watch the video.

While Charity Miles only aligns with national organizations, one great feature of the Charity Miles app is that it allows users to be tracked by zip code.  Therefore, at the end of each challenge term with Charity Miles, Girls on the Run International will receive a report of activity by zip codes. Each council will receive 50% of what is raised in their region.  Be sure to spread the word about Charity Miles to your networks so that they can increase the impact to their local council!
The current challenge term will end in July 2014, after this Charity Miles will evaluate if they will switch to quarterly challenge terms.

How to Get Started

To get started, download the app and select Girls on the Run as your preferred charity, and press start. Then, get moving!

The app works at the same time as your other running apps and for each mile you run, 25 cents is donated to Girls on the Run. What a great way to use your workouts to make a difference!

Using the app is easy!  Download the app, register, choose Girls on the Run as your favorite charity, and press start. Charity Miles will be a great way to engage coaches, parents and runners in your local community to support Girls on the Run!    Runners and walkers earn $.25 per mile and bikers earn $.10 per mile.  At the end of the challenge term, Charity Miles donates money to the causes based on what each has earned.  There is a cap and if the cap is reached the donations are prorated among charities accordingly.
So what do you need to do?  Promote the app to your coaches, volunteers, and supporters.  This is not intended for our participants.  Please help us get the word out by using the language above.  Post on Facebook, send emails and help us raise awareness.  The most successful organization with the app to date is the Wounded Warrior Project and this is because they were able to successfully engage their supporters!
We are so excited to activate our running community in a new way! Together we can all run, walk or ride for GOTR!
