Shropshire Shufflers running club and Lingen Davies Cancer Fund have offered Bascurch and Myddle Primary Schools the chance to take part in their 12k of Christmas charity challenge this term. We have accepted the challenge because so many of the children loved taking part in the schools half marathon, and it is good to have a similar challenge at a different time of year – and also to raise money for a brilliant local cause.
The challenge is to commit to run, walk or jog 1k a day for 12 days whilst helping us to raise money for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund.
No sponsorship is required; simply pay the discounted school entry fee of £4 and in return , you will receive a special Santa Snowflake medal to reward your hard work.
Lingen Davies has been funding projects to improve cancer services our Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales for over 40 years. This is the fourth year that the Shufflers have organised their Christmas charity challenge and this year there will be at least four Shropshire primary schools taking part.
We will be hosting our 1k walks and runs at school during our golden mile sessions, break/lunchtimes. If your child wants to do more than 1k per day, that’s fine but we will still need to complete 12 separate runs for the challenge.
The entry price is £4 per child. We are keen to see as many children from the school take part, but we have only been allocated a limited number of places so these will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
Please log on and pay via School Gateway to secure your medal. It will be called ’12 Kilometres of Christmas Deadline is October half term as we will be beginning the challenge after that.
