This half term, St Benedict’s Catholic High School will be joining thousands of schools across the country, by hosting our very own ‘Race for Life’ in support of Cancer Research UK. This is a charity close to our hearts with many of our students, parents and staff being affected by cancer. We are delighted to be able to actively support Cancer Research UK, to raise money for crucial work around the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Each of our ‘Race for Life’ events will take place between Monday 24th May and Thursday 27th May, for all year groups. All students will have the option to complete the 3km or 5km course, alongside St Benedict’s staff, during one of their normal PE lessons. Students may choose to walk or run during the event.
In preparation for the event, each student will be provided with a link to our fundraising page and an ‘I Race for Life for….’ back sign, which they can then personalise and wear on the day if they wish. On the day of the event, students will need to bring their school PE kit and trainers as normal; they may also wish to bring a drink of water for after the event. Specific information, including dates and times for each PE class, will follow.
Unfortunately, we are unable to invite spectators to our 2021 ‘Race for Life’. If you would like to support us, please visit our fundraising page and help us meet our target of £1000.00 for Cancer Research UK.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
