Race for Life 2016

Posted: 20th June 2016

Adcote School will be holding its very own Race for Life on Thursday 23rd June at 2:00p.m. to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  We would like to invite all family members to join us in this whole-school event to take part in the event alongside your daughter(s). 

The event will be starting with a “Zumba-Style” warm up at 2:00p.m. with the race starting at 2:15p.m.  Participants are encouraged to wear pink and are welcome to run, jog or walk their way around the course.  This year there will be a few obstacles along the route for those who want an extra challenge!  There will also be a prize for the “best outfit” which will be judged on the day.  Refreshments will be provided afterwards including an ice cream van.  Following the race you are invited to have a sit down and relax to watch the “Dramafest” starting at 3:30p.m. which will showcase some of the excellent work carried out by Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils.  This will be performed (weather dependent!) in the gardens. 

From your support in previous years we have been able to raise a fantastic amount of money and this year our target is to raise £2500.  To try and reach this, we are asking for a £2 entry from every participant.  Before Half Term, pupils were also issued with sponsorship forms for them to collect sponsorship money and they should return this to their tutor next week.  Alternatively, donations can be made directly to our Just Giving website page which contains all of the event information.  Please see https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/adcote-school-for-girls23-06-2016

Thank you very much for your support of this event, we look forward to seeing you all on the day!
