Race For Life
From the 10th – 14th February 2020 Team JMS hosted a school ‘Race for Life week’, to raise funds for charity, Cancer Research. Student Ace Manthey wanted to continue to support the charity after being diagnosed, and battling leukaemia as a child.
More than 900 students, and a number of staff, participated in the 5km race, with different year group taking part each day. Pupils who took part in the Race for Life runs were able to wear signs on their back with the name of someone they know who has been affected by cancer. As a school we have had an amazing response to this project, raising £8,379.79 in aid of Cancer Research.
