Exercise for a CAUSE!!

Do you have a smart phone? If you do, that's awesome. 

Do you want to be healthier and donate to a good cause? If so, you ROCK!

With a little bit of research, I found this awesome app that can be used while you exercise. You can exercise and download an app that will track your mileage for biking, walking, or running/jogging and then transfer the mileage you earn into a donation for the charity of your choice. 

It is super hot outside and I definitely wouldn't recommend exercising yourself or your pets too much/ at all outside because heat stroke is EXTREMELY dangerous, but I wanted to bring to your attention a totally rockin' way to exercise! When it cools down a bit, this might be the motivation you need to get out and get exercising. 

The Charity Miles app for your mobile devices will let you log in to support the cause of your choice, start moving, and will track your mileage. There are many worthwhile causes, but over at Project R.E.A.C.H., we will be exercising for the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). 

Biking will earn the ASPCA (or other cool causes) 10 cents per mile, and walking and running will earn 25 cents per mile. When you have completed your activity, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that will share how much you contributed. There is absolutely NO COST TO YOU. You simply have to be willing to give yourself over to some exercise! 

Although exercise can seem like torture, knowing that you are helping animals in need might just be the motivation you need to do something great! If you already exercise, why not you add another level of awesome to your workout?! I'm going to do it!! You should too!! :)

If you decide to do this, make sure to post to  

or on our blog 

We want to hear how you are giving back and for you to share your experiences and healthy milestones! :)

Check out, go to your Apple app store or get the Android App on Google Play.

If you need any help, let me know! I can try to "walk" you through it. ;) Pun is absolutely intended!
