Elaine Wyllie founder of The Daily Mile talks to GMB
Former head teacher, Elaine founded The Daily Mile in 2012. She talks to GMB about the success of the movement over the past 6 years.
Elaine founded The Daily Mile in 2012 when she was head teacher of St Ninian’s Primary School in Stirling. She had become increasingly concerned about the lack of fitness in her students. Within just four weeks, fitness levels had dramatically increased, attention levels and behaviour in class were improved and parents commented that their children were more active and alert, and were sleeping much better.
Elaine has since retired from teaching and has dedicated herself to introducing The Daily Mile to schools across the UK and abroad. She is passionate about improving the physical, social, mental and emotional health and wellbeing of our children.
