Treviglas Goes the Mile for Sports relief
Article Created on Monday, 26 March 2012
Treviglas Community College held a mile-long fun run last Friday in a fundraising effort for Sports Relief.
Kitted up in trainers and a wide range of fancy dress outfits, students and staff filled the college field to take part in the national charity event.
Gorgeous sunshine beat down on the course as runners from year 7 all the way up through year 13 strode alongside teaching staff, including Head Teacher Karen Ross, to help raise support for vulnerable people in the UK and abroad.
Running wasn’t the only way to tackle the course either. Racers were seen skipping, hopping and “three-legging” their way across the finish line. One participant even dribbled a football for the entire mile.
To add some friendly competition to the event, the times of the 10 fastest runners from each house were recorded and averaged out to determine the college’s quickest house. The speedsters in the college’s Fistral House ultimately took the honour.
In the end, Treviglas managed to raise close to £1,000 for the biennial charity event through student and staff donations.
Treviglas PE Teacher Molly Leverton organised the fun run and said: “I could not be more pleased with how well everything turned out. It was wonderful to see the whole college coming together for such a great cause, and have so much fun while doing it.”
