 Artists- R.E. Wall, Margaret Dewar, Katie Nelson, and Mile High School students.

The Mile High and Climbing mural is located at the front entrance to Mile High Middle School in downtown Prescott Arizona. The Mural Mice enlisted 750 children in the creation of the mural from scratch to completion. The mural was dedicated on May 15th, 2008 with a grand celebration that included the Mile High Jazz Band, Mile High Choir, and three Mile High students calling themselves "the Little Squeakers." The mural was administered by Prescott Alternative Transportation and funded by the federal Safe Routes to School Program, a program that fights childhood obesity and other inactivity-related health issues, environmental pollution, and traffic congestion by encouraging kids to walk and ride bikes to school.
