With Pokemon Go taking the world by storm, it is not uncommon to see hundreds of people out and about.

Now, an app is hoping to capitalize on those walkers for a good cause.

Charity Miles, a free fitness app that launched in 2012, allows you to raise money for charity while you walk, run, or bike.

Unlike when you sign up for a 5k and have to seek out pledges and donations, Charity Miles will pay out based on the distance logged in through your phone’s GPS.

You can earn up to 25 cents for every mile you walk or run, and up to 10 cents a mile on your bike.

It is a simple process. You download the free app, sign in, pick your chairty, and press start on your workout.

You can pick a different one of the 37 charities every time you log in a workout.

The app is sponsored by corporations like Humana, Johnson & Johnson, MasterCard, Kenneth Cole, Timex Sports and others.
