Turning workout miles into charitable donations

Turning workout miles into charitable donations | Springwise: your daily fix of new business ideas

Interesting — I read this trendspotting newsletter and it linked to this site — raising money for charity with your daily exercise:

Plus 3 Network, based in California, lets consumers turn every step, turn of the pedal or stroke in the pool into a fundraising effort for the cause of their choice. Consumers begin by signing up at no cost and choosing the cause they’d like to support. Plus 3 then matches that cause with a corporate sponsor who is willing to make donations for each mile of exercise activity logged. Consumers then simply record their walking, running, biking or swimming activities on Plus 3—either by manually entering them on the site, or by uploading GPS data that includes the course, the pace, the distance and the date. Corporate sponsors donate anywhere from USD 0.0033 to USD 0.2 per mile, with GPS data earning three times as many rewards as those entered by hand. Social networking features allow users to form groups and add friends for joint activities, and participants can also earn prizes, discounts and swag ranging from trinkets to junkets, the site says. Plus 3, meanwhile, is paid by its sponsors for the opportunity to connect with members, thereby keeping the site ad-free.”

Anyone try this?

    Very good website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any remaimendotcons, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
