The 100 Mile Club® provides the opportunity to run or walk 100 miles at school during a single school year and is committed to improving school readiness to learn, creating better educational outcomes, building self-esteem and overall improved health in the lives of children and others.
We are a grass-roots non-profit dedicated to helping our children become healthy, happy, and connected...one child, one school, one community at a time.
Our kids need to move!!
Childhood inactivity and obesity is at an all-time high and affects 1 of every 6 kids in the United States reports Journal of School Health. More than 30 percent of children are obese or overweight. This is triple from 1980. Only 8 percent of elementary school students and 6 percent of middle school and high school students have daily PE at school and today budget cuts have minimized or eliminated P.E. altogether.
Realizing physical activity has a significant impact of the health status of our kids and our community, The 100 Mile Club has created a simple, innovative, sustainable answer to the current health crisis in our youth: daily physical activity in a nonthreatening, supportive, inclusive environment. Our concept is simple and easy to implement. We put a new creative spin on the simple act of walking or running by creating an incentive program that adds excitement while teaching children how to become responsible and accountable for their own success.
