Moreton Hall hosted a special event for Cancer Research UK on Saturday 12th May raising over £2500!
Emily King, a Lower Sixth student, organised Moreton’s inaugural Race for Life for Cancer Research UK. With over 2.5 million people now living with cancer in the UK, and over 1,000 people being diagnosed with it every day, she felt it was high time we did our bit to help.
Emily commented: “Sport is a big deal at Moreton Hall, so it seemed an obvious choice to combine raising money for Cancer Research with a nice big run! Cancer Research UK supported the school from start to finish with staging the event, which saw over 200 people taking part – most dressed in pink and all wearing big smiles on their faces!”
Alison McDonald, Director of Sport at Moreton Hall said: “It was such a positive, fun and happy event to be involved with. Everyone pulled together for a fantastic cause – the grounds team worked hard to get the course ready, and our Catering Manager, Stephen Conroy, along with his team, provided a really lovely BBQ for everybody afterwards in the sunshine. There was a great atmosphere all day!”
The event raised over £2,500 – thank you to everyone who was involved.
