Year 11 Race For Life

On Monday 26 March the Year 11 Stroud High School team took part in a school-led Cancer Research Race for Life. The runners and their tutors were challenged to complete the 5k route back in September and have been training for the event both in lessons and out of school.

The runners were encouraged to dress in pink to support the Race for Life theme of the 'Pink Army', many donned tutu's and fairy wings, with the majority of the year group also choosing to dedicate their run to someone they know that has fought or are fighting cancer. Some students took on the additional challenge of completing the course tied to a friend in a three-legged race!

The event was also supported by Michelle Leighton, Area Event Manager for Cancer Research UK, who spoke to the girls at the start line about the impact their fundraising would have in the fight against the disease. In total the year group managed to raise a staggering £1890 for the charity.
