Due to the coronavirus outbreak, schools in California have closed, athletic activities have been canceled and recreation facilities have been shuttered. However, there are plenty of fun and creative ways to keep moving our bodies while we spend more time at home! We recommend that parents or adults download the app to their phone.
Here are some helpful websites to help you either exercise or go outside.

- Charity Miles App - iPhone App | Android App
Families need to know that Charity Miles - Running & Walking Distance Tracker is a free mileage tracker app that donates money to charities based on the number of miles you walk, run, or bike. Note that the app tracks and collects your location and shares your email address with the charities you select. Though younger kids could use this app, it's best to use an adult's email address and for kids to use it with an adult.
