At 8.00am on Friday 18th March, pupils and staff at The King Edward VI School started their 24 hour sport and physical activity challenge in aid of Sport Relief. The challenge began on the school’s athletics track where staff and students ran and walked either 1,3 or 6 miles. This was followed by a day and night of sport and physical activity in a bid to keep King Edwards active for 24 consecutive hours.
Throughout the event students and staff donated money to take part in a wide range of activities including tug of war, Taekwondo, Hoop Starz, Zumba, hockey, POUND workout, Clubbercise, Crossfit, dodgeball, Kwik cricket, badminton, table tennis, volleyball, curling and yoga. The event closed with members of the school returning to the athletics track to run their final miles for Sports Relief.
Thank you to all of those who supported the challenge. It was a big success and this was down to the individuals who gave up their time to try something new and get active for Sports Relief. So far we have raised £2500 and sponsorship is still coming in.
