The 100 Mile Club presents students with a straightforward challenge: run, jog, or walk 100 Miles over the course of the school year.

70%

of obese children already have at least one risk factor for heart disease.

50%

of girls are dissatisfied with their weight by age 8.

The Need

Childhood obesity and inactivity has grown at an alarming rate and now affects more than 30 percent of children, making it the most common chronic disease of childhood.

The age of 6 is when sociocultural factors start influencing body dissatisfaction, leading to pervasive negative body esteem.

Experts believe schools are a key setting for efforts to prevent childhood obesity.

Our Solution

Taking a unique approach to prevent, reduce, and reverse childhood obesity amongst school age children, we make fitness opportunities available in schools and empower kids to achieve a healthy lifestyle they can maintain.

Our unique Signature Incentives celebrate and unify all students. Every year, our milestone tracking t-shirt color changes. No matter where the students are, their shirt will match those of every 100 Mile Club participant that year.
