Children in Mighty Milers set mileage goals and earn loads of rewards along the way. The program is flexible and easy to implement so you can tailor it to your unique needs and environment. You can do Mighty Milers before, after, or even during the school day, as part of P.E., recess, or a quick classroom break. It's ideal for pre-K through 8th grade and great for kids of all fitness levels and abilities.
We also provide people and resources to assist with logistical, training, and motivational support so your staff or adult volunteers can run the program at any school or community center - and it's all free.
