Santa Run!

3rd Dec 2021
We took part in the“Northern Ireland Does The Daily Mile Santa Run” - a virtual mass participation event across all Northern Ireland primary and early years settings. The purpose being to raise awareness for children’s mental health and well being. The Daily Mile currently has over 3 million children running a Daily Mile across 13,500 schools in 88 countries but this is the first national Santa Run event of its kind. The Daily Mile is a transformative initiative where children run, jog, wheel or walk for fifteen minutes every day, in which time, most children will average a mile or more.  The Daily Mile Network NI co-chair and Stranmillis University College Lecturer Dr Brenda McKay-Redmond joined us today along with a surprise guest appearance from the big man (Santa) himself! Fifteen minutes of exercise, jogging or walking, whilst outside when it is safe to do so, can lead to everyone becoming happier, fitter and stronger. #TheDailyMile
