America Does The Daily Mile!

Get your heart racing this Valentine’s Day! Join elementary schools and daycares around the nation to participate in The Daily Mile on Valentine’s Day. This mass-participation event encourages teachers to take their students outside to walk, jog, run, or roll for just 15 minutes. Children enrolled in online/remote learning can participate too (with parent or guardian supervision, of course)!

We believe that this event can have a positive impact on the physical and mental health of the next generation. By coming together and celebrating the power of daily activity, we can promote a healthier lifestyle for children everywhere.

So let’s make this Valentine’s Day one to remember! Lace up your sneakers, grab your water bottles, and get ready to move. Whether you’re a student, teacher, or parent, you can make a difference in the lives of our children. Let’s show them the joy of being active and the power of movement.

Valentine’s Day!

What is The Daily Mile?

The Daily Mile is a life-changing opportunity for children and the adults who lead them. It is a solution to healthier, happier, more engaged students! The Daily Mile is a whole-child movement that takes kids outdoors to run, jog, roll or walk for 15-minutes each day. But it’s so much more than that. Created by an elementary school principal and her students, it is proven, effective, and sustainable. The Daily Mile is free for your school family … forever. Watch this to learn more!

Join the movement to access exclusive member-only resources and join The Daily Mile community. Try The Daily Mile with just one class and experience the benefits. Watch it grow to the whole school! Homeschoolers and remote-learners are welcome to join, too!
