We may have found the easiest way ever to support a healthy and worthy charitable cause.
Running shoe company Mizuno recently launched The Mizuno Baton app as part of its “What if Everybody Ran?” campaign, and it makes turning your daily run into an act of giving back easier than reaching for your foam roller.
Here’s how it works: Download the app and activate the “baton,” and then bring your phone with you when you go running for a week. The app will log your miles and donate one dollar per mile to Back on My Feet, an organization that empowers the homeless to rebuild their lives via running.
When your week is up you can “pass the baton” to a friend, maybe along with a text along the lines of “Seriously, why wouldn’t you do this?” Insert little dude running emoticon here. —Lisa Elaine Held
