Hundreds of pupils from Cundall Manor School donned fancy dress, braved the bitterly cold January weather and traversed an obstacle course as they conquered the Race for Life in an attempt to raise funds for Cancer Research.
Pupils from the school braved the weather to take on cancer and walk, jog or run in aid of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. The fancy dress theme saw innovative outfits take to the course. Several pupils also decided to work together to tackle the course and compete in their own three-legged challenge.
Louise Bessey, said: “The Race for Life is a great addition to the school calendar. This is the third year we have completed the race and we have raised thousands of pounds for an unbelievable charity. The whole school community is supporting the event so it is something that really brings everyone together, all whilst raising money for a wonderful cause.”
“Most of us know someone who has been affected by cancer and we all have our special reasons for taking part and wanting to help more people survive.”
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring series of events which raises millions of pounds every year to help fund vital research.
