Lewes declares Extra Mile Day Nov. 1
Mayor Jim Ford will join more than 400 other mayors across the United States in recognizing a growing movement that is dedicated to encouraging individuals and organizations to go the extra mile in service and volunteerism.
At a time when many are demanding changes in service and opportunity, Extra Mile Day celebrates individuals and organizations that have chosen to create positive change in their communities by going the extra mile. Created in 2009 with 23 cities making the inaugural declaration, Extra Mile Day has continued to build momentum each year since.
"We all talk about wanting change...happiness...more opportunity," says Extra Mile Day founder Shawn Anderson. "However, relying on others to make that happen is only wishing for life to get better. Taking personal responsibility and going the extra mile personally is where true change is created."
