Contribute your expert opinion on elementary school health & wellness topics! 

What are the challenges facing your elementary school community? Teacher burnout? Student behavioral issues? Are students falling behind in learning? How would you describe the physical and mental health of your school family?

The Daily Mile is a solution with demonstrated benefits for childrens’ mental, physical, social, and emotional health. This free initiative gets kids outside each day to walk, jog, run, or wheel for 15 minutes. Over three million children in 13,000+ schools across the globe participate, including 365 schools in the US.

The purpose of the focus group is to understand your expert opinion on school health and wellness topics, including:

  1. What research and information you would need to help make a decision about whether The Daily Mile is the right solution for your school.
  2. How you can access that research and information on The Daily Mile website.

Your views will be used to inform The Daily Mile’s research and outreach, with a goal to put the right content in the right hands to help more children improve their physical, mental, emotional, and social wellbeing.
