Who We Are
Carefully developed over 27 years, 100 Mile Club has been the elite school-based program leading the effort in prevention of childhood inactivity and obesity across the nation.
The 100 Mile Club presents students with a straightforward challenge: run, jog, or walk 100 Miles over the course of the school year.
With nearly 2,500 schools already on their way to 100 miles and another 2,600+ schools engaged and connected, 100 Mile Club is helping to create healthy, happy, connected kids
at over 5,100 schools across the country.
of obese children already have at least one risk factor for heart disease.
of girls are dissatisfied with their weight by age 8.
The inactivity and obesity epidemic 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 increase daily physical activity and prevent childhood obesity.
Taking a unique approach to prevent, reduce, and reverse childhood obesity and inactivity amongst school-age children, we make fitness opportunities available in schools and empower kids to set big goals, achieve them through daily physical activity, and achieve a healthy, active lifestyle they can maintain for life.
Our unique incentive packages celebrate and unify all students. Every year, our MILEstone tracking t-shirt color changes across the country. No matter where students are, their 100 Mile Club shirt, sticker, gold medal, and more will match those of every participant that year, creating team spirit nationwide!
