GreaterSport, on behalf of Greater Manchester has been working with The Daily Mile Foundation to launch the Fit For Life Toolkit which has been launched today. This is a result of a strong, collaborative partnership built on an aligned ambition to take the Daily Mile concept beyond the primary school setting to enable people to move more every day.
Using the GM Daily Mile Toolkit developed with communities in Greater Manchester, the Daily Mile Toolkit encourages and creates simple opportunities to help increase the everyday activity levels of children, young people, and adults. By broadening the delivery of The Daily Mile from a school setting into the community and a variety of other settings, the toolkit aims to have an impact across the generations.
The Daily Mile Toolkit aims to support people doing their Daily Mile however and wherever suits them. There are three tailor-made versions: Individual and Family Toolkit, Workplace Toolkit and a Groups and Organisation Toolkit and all help people to run, jog, wheel or walk The Daily Mile.
The Daily Mile Fit For Life work has been inspired by the success of the highly acclaimed children’s health and wellbeing initiative ‘The Daily Mile’ which was started by Elaine Wyllie in 2012 whilst headteacher of a Scottish Primary school.
Take a look at The Daily Mile Toolkit here, use it and share it with others.
GreaterSport and GM Moving partners will be sharing our learning on the development and use of toolkits to support people across Greater Manchester to move more in an online workshop on Wednesday 16th February 2022 from 1 - 3:30pm. Please join us if you're interested.
