BG 'MILE A DAY MARATHON'

 04/06/2018 (Mon) 
Further Information

As part of our fundraising for the second phase of the front of school, we are going to be doing a 'MILE A DAY MARATHON' over the first 26 days of this half term.

Children in KS2 will be encouraged to run or walk a mile a day, measured out in different parts of the school, and be sponsored for this.  Children in KS1 will complete half a mile a day.  The children will receive a medal and a certificate for completing the marathon but will also have the pride of knowing they have successfully completed a tough challenge.

As well as hopefully raising money, we are excited by the health benefits of this activity.  A number of schools nationwide carry out 'The Daily Mile', which has amassed evidence to suggest it leads to greater academic performance and concentration levels during class time.

For those who would like to sponsor children for this event, then please either use this link to our fundraising site or, alternatively, you can download a paper sponsorship form below.

Best wishes and happy running!

Mr Birch

Deputy Head
