What could get a 3rd grader to run 500 miles at school in one year? What could get a kindergartener to complete 300 miles? 

The Morning Mile™ is a proven program geared towards fighting childhood obesity and increasing the physical activity levels of school children in the US and beyond.


The Morning Mile™ is a before-school walking/running program that gives children the chance to start each day in an active way while enjoying fun, music and friends. It’s also supported by a wonderful system of rewards, which keeps students highly motivated and frequently congratulated.


Our program guidebook ensures any school can easily reproduce the Morning Mile™; it has already been implemented all over Florida and in Texas, Louisiana, California, Canada and on a US Air Force base near Tokyo, Japan. We have over 150 schools and camps running with extraordinary success. Morning Milers have already completed over 1,000,000 miles!


Providing children the opportunity to exercise each morning not only works to fight childhood obesity, it allows students to expend youthful energy on the field leaving them more likely to excel in academics once the school day begins. Teachers praise their student’s new ability to sit still, focus and learn while parents rave about their child’s sense of pride, accomplishment and dedication to a healthy lifestyle. The kids love how exercise makes them feel, their reward necklaces and socializing with friends. The Morning Mile™ provides an opportunity for 100% of each school’s student body to participate each day of the school year.  It is not a “club”. It is not exclusive. It is not just for jocks or kids who can follow complicated choreography. The Morning Mile offers a pressure free and friendly environment, which ensures children of all types, can pursue fitness each day of the school year.


With more than 100 schools on our waiting list hoping to get started, we’re hoping more businesses, organizations and generous individuals will step forward to sponsor these schools. Sponsorships range between $750 and $1,250 per school, NEVER need to be renewed and come with amazing marketing benefits.
