Sport England has today committed £1.5 million of National Lottery funding to support The Daily Mile, the ground-breaking fitness initiative that aims to get children fit for life. In what is the biggest ever expansion of the programme since it originated in 2012, the investment will fund the recruitment of National and Local Coordinators to support and encourage more schools in England to sign-up.
Currently, The Daily Mile helps schoolchildren in over 3,500+ English schools reach their daily activity target. Sport England and The Daily Mile Foundation’s partnership marks their shared vision to bring daily physical activity to all 20,000 primary schools in England.
