“EVERY LONDON PRIMARY SCHOOL TO RUN THE DAILY MILE”, SAYS THE ADPH
THE DAILY MILE HAS BEEN FORMALLY RECOMMENDED TO THE MAYOR OF LONDON!
The Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) recently issued a response to the Mayor of London’s draft Health Inequalities Strategy. The report repeatedly encouraged the implementation of The Daily Mile across London, as a means to improve the health and attainment outcomes for children across the city.
London’s Directors of Public Health have called on the Mayor to partner with London Boroughs to organise London-wide school based Daily Mile activities and events. A recent Daily Mile celebration in Manchester was praised for helping more than 42,000 children from over 160 schools to take part in a special Daily Mile.
We’re thrilled that the many benefits of daily physical activity are being recognised by high level government bodies across the United Kingdom. Together we can ensure that all children reap the benefits of improved physical, mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing.
