BBC WM wants YOUR school to ‘Get Moving!’

BBC WM wants schools across the Black Country to join them on the ‘Get Moving’ campaign ...encouraging everyone to move a bit more and live happier and healthier lives!

As part of the campaign, BBC WM Breakfast Show presenters Sam and Daz are encouraging every school in the Black Country to try out The *Daily Mile™. 

It involves teachers getting their pupils out of the classroom every day to run or jog, at their own pace, for 15 minutes. 

It’s free, simple and you’ll get lots of support from BBC WM, The Daily Mile Foundation and Active Black Country. 

Across the world 8,200 schools and nurseries are taking part. 

Teachers say it not only helps childrens’ fitness but also improves concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general well-being. 

Your school might also get talked about on BBC radio – and you may even get a visit from one of BBC WM’s presenters! 

If your school is already doing The Daily Mile BBC WM want to hear from you, too...to find out how it’s going! 

If you’re interested in finding out more about how your school could get involved, or to tell us that you’re already involved, please email BBC WM’s Get Moving manager Carolle Forde Garcia on: Carolle.forde.garcia@bbc.co.uk
