After school on Tuesday 13th December our 5K runners made their way down to the start line to take part in the much anticipated Staff 5K Fun Run in aid of Cancer Research.
Supported by lots of fellow staff members, students, families and other members of the community, the staff took on the 6.5 laps of People Park as the darkness was setting in and the rain was starting to fall.
Everyone’s hard work and training paid off and all the runners made it successfully to the finish line to loud applause from the large group of supporters.
The fundraising target we had set ourselves for this event was £2000. However, as the runners were crossing the finish line we had already passed that target, and the current running total stands at a massive £3558.59 and counting!
On behalf of all of the runners we would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who helped the event run as smoothly as it did, to all the people who sponsored us and also those who came out and helped cheer everyone along during the event.
There is still time to sponsor our runners by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Stmatthews-5k with all the proceeds going to Cancer Research.
Now to plan the next event to keep our staff on their feet… any suggestions please email email@example.com.
