What they say
INEOS has been supporting The Daily Mile the last three years. We know how important it is to encourage children to get fit and healthy and look after themselves, not just for today but for the years to come.Jim Ratcliffe, Founder and Chairman of INEOS
The Daily Mile has already proved a great success for the schools that are taking part with a hugely positive impact on children’s health and wellbeing. ITV wants to use the power of TV and the reach of our programming to change attitudes and behaviours towards living more healthily. We are aiming to get the whole country engaged with this initiative and every UK primary school taking part.Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive of ITV
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
