Dave Jimenez Podcast Leave a Comment


What an honor! We got to record an interview with Charity Miles (@CharityMiles) CEO Gene Gurkoff (@GeneGurkoff). Not only is Gene one heck of an endurance athlete, completing 50 or so marathons, a trail ultra-marathon, and 6 Ironman Triathlons, but he is a Harvard Law graduate that went from a prestigious law firm in New York City to the founder and CEO of an amazingly addictive and charitable iPhone and Android App called Charity Miles.

Charity Miles is a free iPhone and Android app that enables people to earn corporate sponsorships that benefit their favorite charities while walking, running or biking. They are supported by awesome companies like HumanaJohnson & JohnsonTimex Sports and Kenneth Cole.
