November 1 is Extra Mile Day
Shawn Anderson’s mission is to empower 1 million people to answer the question, “Why live a life that is unfulfilling?” He created Extra Mile Day held on November 1 to remind people that they each have the power to create positive changes in families, organizations and communities when they go the extra mile. This year, more than 400 mayors have committed to supporting the event to make an Extra Mile Day declaration.
In 2009, Anderson pedaled solo across the U.S. and interviewed 200 people that had gone the extra mile to overcome dramatic setbacks or had risked everything in order to accomplish something extraordinary. He says, “I was thrilled when 23 mayors supported the mission in that inaugural year.” His Facebook page now boasts 20,000 fans.
