Walk, run, rollerblade… MOVE and help us raise awareness.
We are pleased to share that the March for Patient Safety has been added as a charity in the acclaimed-mobile app, Charity Miles, which allows you to fundraise while you exercise!
For every mile you move, you help fundraise for the March for Patient Safety and the Patient Safety Movement Foundation from a corporate sponsorship pool. You can also create your own team and ask your friends and family to join, or pledge to support you.
Download Charity Miles and help us raise awareness about patient safety while you exercise. Donations made through the app will benefit the March for Patient Safety and the Patient Safety Movement Foundation.
We’ve developed a FAQ for setting up your Charity Miles account.
