How Does Just 1 Mile Project Work?

The Just 1 Mile Project is a recurring month-long virtual running event with a goal of uniting runners of all skill levels. It is based around the notion that if every person gives a little, together we can give a lot. Runners and walkers register by committing to complete 1 mile for a $1 donation, and additional miles can be added to the donation at the rate of $1 per mile. The Just 1 Mile Project chooses a different, deserving nonprofit organization or charity as the benefactor each month.

How Much is Donated to the Charity?

The Just 1 Mile Project donates 100% of registration fees to the month’s dedicated nonprofit organization or charity partner.

How does the Just 1 Mile Project Select the Charity or Nonprofit?

Each month, the Just 1 Mile Project carefully selects a charity or nonprofit organization based on the work they have done to make a change including providing PPEs to frontline employees, feeding children and providing shelter for the homeless. A top criterion is that the organization is in good standing with the Charity Navigator.


We know that together we call all make a change in a life or a cause.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Just 1 Mile Project and hope you join our community of runners.
