The V-Day 10K Challenge

Are you exercising as part of your New Year’s resolutions?  Are you walking, biking, or running?  There is a cool fitness app, available for both iPhone and Android, called Charity Miles.  You definitely need to check this one out!  You can donate to charities while logging your miles!

In February, the Charity Miles app is partnering with the United Nations Foundation to help raise $10,000 just by downloading the app and using it to record your walk, run, or bike ride!

For every mile walked or ran, Charity Miles is donating 25¢ and for every mile biked they are donating 10¢!

For the month of February, the donations are going to several worth UN Foundation campaigns, and YOU get to choose the campaign you donate your mileage to!

You can choose from Shot@Life, that provides lifesaving vaccines for children in need, Girl Up, that provides education for girls in developing countries, and Nothing But Nets, that provides mosquito nets to fight against malaria.

When you finish your walk, run, or ride– you can share your miles and charity choice via Twitter!

This is an awesome motivator get and stay moving… and earn money for a well-deserving charity!

So, get moving!
