St Mary’s Catholic Academy Race for Life 2016

Race For Life
On Wednesday 18th May St Mary’s hosted our annual Race for Life. As usual students didn’t disappoint with their bright outfits including bright pink war paint, pink socks, tinsel and even a few boys in dresses! Everyone really did get into the spirit of the event. Mr Eccles opened the event with a prayer and a few reflective words. This was followed by students from each year group releasing some balloons as a mark of respect to those people who are currently suffering with cancer, who have lost their lives from cancer or who have successfully battled and won their fight! The event then got going with an active group warm up followed by the 8 lap, 5km course on the academy field. Natalia Luczak (year 7) was the first runner across the finish line. However the event wasn’t really about who won but the enjoyment of taking part in such a fun event for a worthy cause.

For the first time we opened the event up to boys as well as girls, Christ the King Academy staff and year 5 and 6 students joined in the fun. There were nearly 100 participants, the sun shone and fun was had by all. Also on the day we also had a staff raffle and a cake stall with all money raised going to Race for Life. Well done everyone.

Please can all students who took part now begin to collect their sponsor money and take it to the main office. The deadline for money is Friday 10 June. THANKYOU for you commitment to such a worthy cause. See you all again next year!
