Schools across Cornwall are being encouraged to sign up for The Daily Mile in a bid to tackle physical inactivity and childhood obesity.

Cornwall Council is encouraging every primary school in Cornwall to introduce The Daily Mile from 15th January 2018.

Councillor Hawken said, “The Daily Mile is a really quick and easy way for everyone to get more active. Even gentle physical activity daily can have a positive impact on mental health, concentration levels as well as reducing weight. Small steps can make a big difference, and it’s important we work towards reducing the health impacts from obesity in Cornwall.”
