Sport and physical activity’s role in changing lives across London was in the spotlight at Wembley Stadium last night (8 March), as the London Sport Awards took centre stage. In a ceremony high on inspiration and celebration, eight projects and individuals were acknowledged for their work in improving the lives of Londoners over the past year.

The Daily Mile Foundation’s Founder, Elaine Wyllie, „triumphed“ in the Children and Young People category. The Award demonstrates:

  • A creative approach to getting more children and young people involved in physical activity and sport and/or reducing levels of inactivity among young people
  • A positive impact on the lives, health and wellbeing of children and young people
  • An ability to increase the proportion of young people from under-represented groups taking part in regular physical activity and/or sport
  • An ability to integrate regular physical activity into daily routines for young people who were previously inactive
