Empowering Positive Change...
One Extra Mile Attitude, Word and Action at a Time.

Extra Mile Day

“Extra Mile Day” is November 1!


Extra Mile Day recognizes the capacity we each have to create positive change in ourselves, our families, our organizations and our communities when we "go the extra mile." It is a day to celebrate individuals and organizations in local communities that go the extra mile in order to make a difference. It is also a day to renew our commitment to going the extra mile in personal effort, volunteerism, and service.

In 2015, 551 cities declared November 1 "Extra Mile Day."
In 2016, 452 awesome cities have made the November 1 declaration
to recognize the extra-mile heroes in their communities.
And the number is growing daily!
Thank you to all the extra mile mayors and heroes across America who inspire us to go the extra mile!
