The idea for New York City-based Charity Miles came from founder Gene Gurkoff’s love of competing and his passion for supporting important causes. As founder of Team Fox (The Michael J. Fox Foundation), which has raised $20 million since 2006, Gene realized the difficulties of getting corporate sponsors & decided there must be an easier way. Hence, the birth of Charity Miles.  Today, with over 100K active users, Charities now include: The Wounded Warrier Project, Austism Speaks, Stand Up to Cancer, Feed America, Red, Habitat for Humanity, ASPCA and more.   

Charity Miles has earned SXSW Interactive People’s Choice Award and is one of Mashable’s Top Five Fitness Apps.
