The Daily Mile

What is The Daily Mile?

‘In a nutshell, it's something that you, your family, friends and colleagues should be doing!'

The Daily Mile™ is simple and free. We want to get everyone in Cornwall fit for life by encouraging them to walk briskly for at least 15 minutes every day. The Daily Mile Fit For Life can take place anywhere e.g. workplaces, homes, retirement homes, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies, colleges, universities.

It can be a standalone activity or incorporated into everyday tasks such as walking the kids to school, getting off the bus a couple of stops early - the list is endless! It is a physical activity which promotes social, emotional and mental health and well being, as well as fitness.

It takes place outside in the fresh air during the day at a time that fits into the person's life. No special kit or equipment is required.

We shall be updating our website soon with a starter pack to get you going but in the meantime please download these A5 flyers for employers  and employees  and contact us for more information.

Cancer Support in the Workplace - Dec 2013

Almost one person in five with cancer who was employed full time when they were diagnosed felt that their employer could have done more to understand their needs and circumstances, a poll by insurer Unum and Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres found.  Better communication was the key, it added.  ( Occupational Health, December 2013)

These awards show the commitment of organisations, public and private, large and small, to employees' health and wellbeing. They also acknowledge the relationship between health and wellbeing, engagement and productivity"
