Our Race for Life!

This year we held an ‘Our Race for Life’ event here at the Academy

The race took place on 29 June, was open to boys and girls, and they could run either 5k or 10K.  All monies raised will go to Cancer Research.

The event was organised by Mrs Holdich, pictured below, and was supported by our local branch of Tesco, which provided fruit, energy bars and water for the runners.


We are also taking a group of staff and students to Ferry Meadows on 2 July to run the official Race for Life there.

Money from both events will be pooled.  Last year the Academy raised approximately £7,000 and we have raised £13,000 over the last 7 years.  With so many families affected by cancer many of our students are really happy to get directly involved and DO something about the big C!
