Billion Mile Race
Billion Mile Race is a new initiative that’s bringing together school-based walking and running programs across the US and challenging them to collectively walk, jog, and run one billion miles.
The New Balance Foundation Billion Mile Race is run out of the nationwide ChildObesity180 initiative, and is challenging America’s schools to collectively walk and run one billion miles. The initiative aims to celebrate and connect schools where kids are walking and running and to accelerate development of new walking/running programs at schools that don’t already have them. Any type of walking/running program before, during, or after school qualifies (e.g., walking school buses, running clubs, walking clubs, fun runs, etc.).
Registration takes five minutes and is completely free. Register by August 21st to put 2014/15 miles on the board and jump out to an early lead!
