2500 children from 45 schools got together to run in Battersea Park Thursday 20 June 2019
At the event Prof Saxena’s DETAIL– Daily Mile Evaluation Team at Imperial received an award from Elaine Wyllie of The Daily Mile Foundation
Elaine Wyllie MBE, founder of The Daily Mile said: “We’ve seen the positive impact of The Daily Mile for the 8,890 schools and nurseries across the world that are already taking part. This has been backed by initial studies and anecdotal evidence from schools worldwide. We are very excited to work with Imperial College London to really understand the physical, mental and social benefits.”
Professor Sonia Saxena of Imperial College London said: “The Daily Mile is a great example of a simple, free inclusive intervention that has built in sustainability because it has grown from grass roots. The potential lifelong health benefits of investing in daily physical activity are immense but need strong science to support its implementation. We look forward to working closely with the Foundation over the coming years.”
