Wouldn't it be great if you could contribute real money to your favorite animal rescue just by walking? That's exactly the idea behind ResQwalk. It's not only a great way to raise awareness and funds for charities you care about, but it's an awesome motivator to get off the couch and get moving.
What is it about?
Walk, run or bike to help raise money for you favorite animal rescue. The app provides some amazing motivation for you to get up and move, and it also helps organizations you care about so it's a win win. Each month there is a pool of cash donated by a proud sponsor and the more you walk the more you can earn for your rescue. There are a lot of rescues on there, so the pool does have to get split a lot of ways, but that shouldn't stop you from getting up and moving in order to help the cause. Make sure to have the app on when you start walking, it will then use your location to track your progress. When done snap a photo and share it with friends to help raise awareness and get others on board.

Why we love it
We love ResQwalk because it raises awareness and money for animal rescues, which is something very close to our hearts. They've created a social experience within the app by adding pictures and likes, which is just another way to get you motivated. We also love it because unlike other workout apps it provides great motivation to actually get you to move. Since you're walking for something you care about it makes you want to walk further, faster and longer.
App Store Description
ResQwalk by Best Friends Animal Society
You can help raise awareness and support for animal welfare organizations and deserving pets looking for their forever homes, simply by walking with this free mobile app.
Simply pick your favorite animal welfare partner from the list, start the app, and go for a walk, run or participate in any other outdoor activity that can be measured by GPS and involves a speed of less than 14 mph. At the end of every activity, share about your adventure and pet to help inspire more to adopt and save them all.
Some months, corporate sponsors may provide a pool of cash and product contributions you can help secure for your selected group or you can participate in the monthly walking goal or challenge.
Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background may significantly decrease battery life.
