#MillionMilePledge

Health starts with children. 70% of early childhood deaths are caused by a preventable disease. Synergia Effect is committed to raise funds and awareness for healthy and active living, and as a part of the fundraising efforts, for every dollar raised through the Million Mile Pledge we will donate 50 cents to the Oakland Children’s Hospital.
In 2015 we started an effort to reach half a million miles. While we didn’t hit the goal of 500k miles, we are determined to hit double-or-nothing in 2016. We’ve refined how you can share your active experiences, and to spread the word.
It’s easy:
1. Go for a run, walk, swim, skate… get moving by doing something that can be measured by distance.
2. Take a picture along the way and post to Facebook or Instagram with the distance completed and #MillionMilePledge
Do this every time you get up and move and on the way to 1 million miles you’ll not only make yourself healthier, but you’ll be helping a child at the same time.
So every time you get out and move- whether it’s walking at work, during your training for a marathon, swimming, skateboarding… whatever it is, take picture, share it to Facebook or Instagram and add the #MillionMilePledge.

 

Run what Motivates You

It’s that time of year where we have set new goals for the year. Hopefully you’ve started the year of strong and are continuing to remind yourself why you get up and move.

We all know moving and eating well is good for us, but to stick to our promise to live active and healthy lives we have to continually remind ourselves why we do it. Why do you get up and move? Is it for family, your heart, for the love of moving? Whatever that reason is we want to hear about it.

Apple revealed its new Apple Watch at the company’s March 2015 Special Event. With features such as a built-in heart rate monitor and personalized activity suggestions, the watch is much more than just an extension of your phone.

During your day, it displays critical fitness information – calories burned, brisk activity, and how long you’ve stood up. When you’re actively working out, it also provides metrics for popular fitness activities like walking, running, and cycling. It also includes a heart rate sensor, GPS, and  accelerometer to help you make the most of your day’s activity.

What impressed me most about the Apple Watch was its customizable activity suggestions. It uses your history to suggest personalized activity goals and reward milestones.

While the Apple Watch certainly has great fitness features, users will have to rely on third party apps for extended health and wellness functionality. For instance, their release did not…

5 Day Kickstarter Countdown!

Screen Shot 2015-02-28 at 2.10.27 PM

We’re in the final days of our first Kickstarter campaign. We’re only at $488 of our $30,000 goal, but we can still make it! If we can get 15 people to pledge $20 each, and then get 15 of their friends or family members to do the same we will hit our goal.

The Synergia App has the mission to change the face of charitable fundraising by allowing people like you to show your support for the health and wellness organizations that mean the most to you through everyday activity. You don’t have to be a marathon runner to make a difference. If you’re on your feet all day at work, grocery shopping with your kids, or training for cycling or running race, you will be able to turn on the Synergia App and have each mile you complete raise funds for causes such as diabetes, your local Children’s Hospital, or qualifying individuals that need assistance with medical bills or special equipment.

You can find more information on our How it Works page and to show your support through Kickstarter visit our campaign page. There are multiple pledge levels, and the more you can pledge the more prizes you will receive. Thank you in advance for your support! Help us get one step closer to Changing the World One Mile at a Time.

A Scale That Helps You Create the Perfect Meal

We can use all the help we can get . Thanks Crunch Theory for sharing.

I’m going to be honest: I suck at cooking and baking. In fact, just last week I butchered macaroni and cheese. But there’s hope for me and everyone else who wants to improve their cooking and their health – a smart cooking assistant named Drop.

Drop is a scale and recipe app that helps you create perfectly baked dishes by informing you when you’ve put in just the right amount of ingredients. It can also adjust the recipe based on how much of an ingredient you have. That way, if you want a sweet treat but don’t want to splurge on too much, you can cut the recipe in half or even more.

Drop has a number of handy features that any baker, experienced or not, will appreciate, including single bowl recipes for easy clean up and smart scaling for when you’re running out of flour. Next on Drop’s list of features includes…
