In 2009, in order to symbolize the “go the extra mile” message,¬†Shawn¬†Anderson¬†(a non-bicyclist) pedaled 4,000 miles ocean-to-ocean, interviewed 200+ people along the way whom had been identified as having gone the extra mile, and then gave $10,000 of his own money to the people and organizations whose stories most inspired him. As a part of that cross-country extra-mile ride, Extra Mile Day (11/1)……a day recognizing the capacity we each have to create positive change in our families, our organizations, our communities and ourselves when we “go the extra mile”… was created with 23 inaugural cities. The momentum of this unique day has continued to build each year since, and on November 1,¬†2018, 553 mayors and cities made the “Extra Mile Day” declaration and¬†recognized people who are “going the extra mile” to make a difference in volunteerism and service in their community.
