SUPERPOWER SUMMARY

I’m a retired teacher from the Pittsburgh area. I'm currently enjoying the milder winters in my new home state of South Carolina. When I was younger, I was a Scottish Highland Dancer and a college volleyball player. So I understand the value of exercise. I still walk 2 miles a day to keep fit. It's easy, requires no expensive equipment, and it’s good for my physical and mental health. The Daily Mile is also easy, and a great way to get kids exercising every day. Although my son is grown, I’m a Daily Mile Champion. I use my superpower to spread the word about The Daily mile. I've talked about it with my friends who have small children, so that they can introduce it to their children’s schools. And I've talked about it to our local superintendent of schools. You can make a Daily Mile difference in children's lives. Become a champion like me today!

SUPERPOWER SUMMARY

My name is Jake Roberts and I am originally from London, England. I teach in North Carolina and am proud to be a Daily Mile Champion. Educating children is my passion. I take pride in developing student's social skills and emotional intelligence. I enjoy developing the whole child. The Daily Mile allows my students to take an active, healthy and energizing break from their work. They encourage each other, improve their own fitness, and we bond as a class as a result. I love the simplicity of the Daily Mile and have loved helping to introduce it here in the US. As a Champion I help to introduce The Daily Mile to my colleagues in the educational community and beyond.
