About The Daily Mile

There is nothing more powerful than the bond of trust built between a student and their teacher. The Daily Mile is a movement-based initiative designed to foster that connection.

Teachers have fun and build stronger relationships with their students through The Daily Mile. 

This whole-child initiative is 100% FREE and easy to begin, leading to a better learning experience for everyone. Over 3,000 schools nationwide have joined the movement where teachers take their students outdoors to walk, jog, run, or roll for 15 minutes a day. During that time, students connect with their teachers and each other on a deeper level, building better relationships.
