Race for Life

Posted: May 4th, 2016

race-for-life-logoSir Thomas Boughey is holding its very own Race for Life event for Cancer Research UK. Our youngsters are the generation that could see ground breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They’re the young warriors who could be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. By taking part in Race for Life and uniting together against cancer, they’ll be doing something really special. Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for their research, so the more of us who join the fight against cancer, the more money we can raise to beat cancer sooner.

Year 7 will take part in the 5k event on Wednesday 11th May during their PE lesson. They can run all the distance themselves or work as a team in a relay format. Other year group pupils who wish to take part can do so at lunchtime, also on the 11th May. All who run will receive a Race for Life medal.

Registration is free to all pupils. We are suggesting that pupils aim to raise between £2 and £10 sponsorship money. Sponsors can use the Just Giving school website here to donate online or pupils can collect a printed sponsorship form from the PE staff. Any money collected will need to be handed to Miss Hemmings in the Finance Office by Wednesday 18th May.
