Go The Extra Mile In Your City

27 September 2018



The Causes

The Extra Mile is a community-led initiative by Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, which addresses a unique social challenge in each city. It gives runners and spectators alike the opportunity to make a meaningful and actionable difference to public health, education, arts or the environment of their communities, all through using the power of sport. 

Not only do we run these cities - we care about them, too.

In London, we asked the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay race community to vote on the social issue that they felt most needed to be addressed in the city. The winner: Empowering Women and Girls!

The Local Partner

In London, The Extra Mile has teamed up with sport for development organisation Greenhouse Sports to encourage women and girls to take up sport and physical activity. Programming will take place through their Changing the Game initiatives, youth club sessions and community centre activities with female coaches leading the charge.

The relay community will now have a chance to volunteer in interactive and exciting activities that addresses this winning challenge and kicks off the yearlong support of The Extra Mile in London. Please join us and go the extra mile yourself by participating in one of the volunteer days, it will be an experience you’ll never forget!

Greenhouse Sports has on-going volunteer opportunities. Volunteers will help provide Greenhouse participants and members of the community club with the opportunity to develop skills to support them in life and sport. Please see the specific details of the volunteer activities below:
