Extra Mile Day is celebrated on November 1 of every year. The Extra Mile Day is created to realize the capacity that we have to build positive change in ourselves, our relatives, our companies and our societies when we “go the extra mile.” It is a special day to commemorate the individuals and the organizations in the local communities that go the extra mile to make the difference. The day also encourages us to renew our commitment to go the extra mile in our effort, service, and volunteerism.
“If you want to succeed at any job, make yourself invaluable. Go the extra mile; make them never be able to imagine what life without you there would be like.” – Ross Mathews
History of Extra Mile Day
In 2009, The Extra Mile America Foundation created the Extra Mile Day (a non-profit organization which promotes the positive action and the positive attitude on peoples) to encourage the citizens from all walks of life to live a fulfilling, self-directed lifestyle which doesn’t constrain their potential. It allows them to at least go the extra mile to achieve that target or goal what they have always wanted. Now the Extra Mile Day is observed by more than 220 mayors in the United States. On this day, organizations, institutions, and individuals will put their foot forward to ensure that peoples live a better life. Hence Extra Mile Day is a perfect day for you to create the positive influence on the society and do your best to make the world the safest place and better place for others.
