Why The Daily Mile works for children, teachers & schools
What they say
I believe The Daily Mile will have a huge impact on young people's lives, helping children across the UK to be fitter, healthier and happier. I'm delighted to be supporting The Daily Mile, and hope that every child has the opportunity to take part in this fantastic initiative.Colin Jackson, Olympic 110m hurdles Medallist
It's such a simple yet effective initiative - within a month the children are much fitter, and feel happier and more confident in themselves. By instilling these healthy habits at a young age, we're helping our children to live full and healthy lives.Christian Malcolm, world and European 200m Medallist
Getting children active at a young age is key to setting them up for a healthy lifestyle. The Daily Mile is so simple. There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required. Children simply run outside in the fresh air. It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.Michaela Breeze, Commonwealth Games Weightlifting Gold Medalist
Increasing opportunities to be physically active during the school day is key to ensuring our children are healthy and well. We are supporting the Daily Mile in Wales as a simple and innovate approach to help children be more active, more often.Dr. Frank Atherton, Chief Medical Officer, Medical Director NHS Wales
Physically active children and young people perform better academically than their inactive peers and those who are most active benefit the most.Dr Richard Bailey, International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education
