Sometimes the best way to motivate people to do something for themselves is to make it a way to help others as well. Charity Miles is a free app that empowers your patients to earn money for charities while walking, running or biking everyday. They can choose from one of several charities including the Wounded Warrior Project, Stand Up to Cancer, and the ASPCA. As they walk, run or bike, the app will tracks the distance and they earn money for your charity: 10¢ per mile for bikers; 25¢ per mile for walkers and runners, all up to $1,000,000 courtesy of corporate sponsors.
Note: Some users have had problems with the app so please let your patients know they may need to be patient with it at first.
