All students will join forces with the teaching and non-teaching staff, to take on cancer and walk, jog or run in aid of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.
To help the pupils prepare, teachers have been using a schools’ resource kit specially created by the charity which includes everything needed to stage the event as well as an assembly plan and top fundraising tips.
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.

Schools across the UK are being invited to hold their own Race for Life events in aid of the charity. They can choose a day that fits with the term calendar and pick a distance which suits the age and abilities of all pupils.
