Race for Life at Saint Paul’s! < < BACK

Staff and students had a fantastic morning when they joined together to take part in a Race for Life to raise much needed funds for cancer research.

The school saw the event as an amazing way to celebrate life but also to remember those who have been lost to the disease.

“Race for Life is non-competitive. It doesn’t matter how fit or fast you are, which meant that everyone at Saint Paul’s could join in,” explained Mrs Angie Holland, from Saint Paul’s. “Taking part was about thinking of others and joining together against a disease that affects all of us.

All the entrants were wearing pink or blue, to some extent, and they ran, walked, hopped, skipped and danced their way around the course. It was great fun and we raised a lot of much needed money for Cancer Research UK! “

Mr Tony Billings, Executive Headteacher, said: “Race for Life is all about fun, friendship and people standing together to unite in the fight against cancer. Our participants walked, jogged or ran but what was important was the power and strength that comes from us all joining together to confront cancer."
