Santa Fun Run
We will be joining forces with the other schools in our Rise MAT family by taking part in the famous Rainbows Santa Run as we aim to complete the distance from Rainbows Loughborough Children’s Hospice to Santa’s workshop in the North Pole to raise money for this wonderful charity.
Collectively there will be around 4000 pupils and hundreds of staff, running, skipping or walking the 2575 miles around sports fields, school halls and play areas to cumulatively complete the distance it would take to reach Santa in his workshop! As the famous Helen Keller once said “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. Which is why we know, by working together we can achieve this huge distance.
Mark Cole, CEO of Rise MAT, said: “Being a part of Rise MAT means having a commitment to the community and helping our children realise what we can all achieve if you work together. We want to provide our schools with the opportunity to work in collaboration with each other, and what better way to do so than with a fun filled Christmas themed fun run raising awareness and vital funds for an amazing charity!”
We will be completing our Santa Fun Run on Friday 8th December. We fully understand how there are many pressures on families, especially more so at this time of year, but any support you can give to this amazing charity, would be hugely appreciated. Every step and every donation, no matter how small will genuinely make a difference.
Donations can be made through our Just Giving page, unfortunately we are unable to accept cash donations. https://tinyurl.com/OakthorpeSanta
