I just signed up for the +3 Network as a member of Team Fatty (the Fat Cyclist's team)! What is the +3 Network, you ask?
Basically, you sign up and designate a charity that you want to support (in this case, Team Fatty is moving for World Bicycle Relief). Then, whenever you exercise, you log your activity on the site and earn money that is donated directly to your selected charity. If you use a GPS enabled device to track your runs/bikes/hikes/etc., you can upload the information automatically. All kinds of activities count - even things like P90X, yoga, and injury rehabilitation exercises.
It costs you nothing. So, if you're doing the exercise anyway, why not let it count for something more?
Are you training for a race? Commuting to work by bike everyday? Just working to get into better shape? I encourage you to sign up and log those workouts.
For step-by-step details on how to sign up for the +3 Network as a member of Team Fatty (or just on your own), Fatty's post (link here) is great.
