Charity Miles


Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10 cents per mile; walkers and runners earn 25 cents per mile – all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Second Harvest of Silicon Valley will receive 65% of revenue generated by the Charity Miles app in Silicon Valley.
