[ARCHIVED] Biddeford Mayor Declares November 1 “Extra Mile Day”

Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant officially declared November 1, 2018 as Extra Mile Day in a proclamation at the October 16 City Council meeting.

Extra Mile Day is a part of the mission of Extra Mile America, an organization founded by Shawn Anderson. As a symbol of “going the extra mile”, Anderson pedaled 4,000 miles on a coast-to-coast bike tour in 2009 and interviewed over 200 individuals who were making a difference in their local communities. Extra Mile Day was created in the spirit of Anderson’s ride to encourage leaders to acknowledge their own exceptional residents. Over 550 mayors across the United States are expected to make the 2018 declaration.

“I urge each individual in the community to take time on this day to not only ‘go the extra mile’ in his or her own life, but to also acknowledge all those who are inspirational in their efforts and commitment to make their organizations, families, community, country, or world a better place,” Casavant said in the proclamation.
