Class 9/10 BIG Run

Our AMAZING Class 9/10 are doing a charity run on 1 July to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. They’ve each set themselves individual challenging targets ranging from 2K in 15 mins to 20K in 1 hour 10 mins. After researching and presenting on different charities they overwhelmingly voted on raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Some have personal experiences that have contributed to this decision and all can appreciate the impact of the weight of a diagnosis of cancer in your teens. Can you support them to reach their target?…


What distance goal have you set and why?

I set a goal of 5k because I don’t want to push myself too hard but I don’t want to make it impossible.

What are you doing to prepare yourself for the run?

I like doing some running from time to time, as well as in school. Just trying to keep running and keeping up my fitness.

How has it been benefiting you, and what have you enjoyed in the challenge?

So far it is showing me that I can go a lot further than I thought I could. It is a nice challenge to do. I think it has helped me physically and mentally.

Have you encountered any challenges and what have you done to overcome them?

Probably to keep up the same running pace, it’s more about focusing on the end goal.

As a class you chose the Teenage Cancer Trust. What does it mean to you?

I think it is a good idea to do this one, because it’s people actually our age so we can relate to this age and the fear they might feel when being told they have cancer.
