“The birth of a baby is supposed to be a joyful time of love and caregiving, but for many women and men who experience postpartum depression, it can be a time of darkness.”

The 100 Mile Club

Tuesday, 10/13/2015

“The 100 Mile Club addresses the issue of childhood obesity and inactivity using a safe, fun and consistent program that can be modified to fit the needs of all children. Our program is a simple, innovative, and sustainable answer to the current health crisis in our youth: daily physical activity in a nonthreatening, supportive, inclusive environment.

There is a philosophical mindset that must be adopted and understood before beginning The 100 Mile Club. Our philosophy is simple. We believe that every single individual has the ability to achieve true personal success and a new level of physical fitness by Accepting the Challenge of running (or walking) 100 Miles at school during a single school year. These feelings of true personal success and fitness are ones that will carry an individual to new levels of achievement in academics, athletics, and life.”

There are several programs available to fit the needs of every school. For more information, please visit the website at or talk to your child’s school.
