Thirty Suffolk schools sign up to The Daily Mile through East Anglian Go Kids (EAGK).
Former Town Player and now Academy Coach, Alan Lee, was at St. Gregory Primary School in Sudbury earlier today along with second year scholars Jack Lankester and Brett McGavin to take part in The Daily Mile.
The initiative is part of East Anglian Go Kids – a new campaign Blues have set up with Suffolk-based organisations, including Vertas.
Alan, Brett and Jack were in attendance to recognise 30 Suffolk schools signing up to The Daily Mile. When East Anglian Go Kids was launched, the aim was to have 25% of Suffolk primary schools registered by the end of 2018.
The Town trio took part in The Daily Mile with pupils from St. Gregory, before presenting certificates and fruit supplied by Vertas upon completion.
One of the key parts of East Anglian Go Kids is encouraging healthy eating in schools and this was well deserved after completing the event. Alan, Jack and Brett all sat down to enjoy a healthy lunch provided by Vertas Eats with pupils and staff from St. Gregory.
Alan spoke to iFollow Ipswich after completing The Daily Mile: “It’s great to be involved, it’s a really good initiative and I would encourage schools to sign up to The Daily Mile as the transformation can be extremely beneficial,” he said.
