Wisbech Grammar School students vow to fight cancer - by walking all over it!
Pupils and staff at Wisbech Grammar School are getting involved in the battle against cancer ahead of World Cancer Day 2018.
In a life-saving fundraising effort, the school has signed up as the first to commit to supporting the North Cambridgeshire Fundraisers for Cancer Research in their new local project aimed at schools, clubs, and societies.
Sue Simmons, North Cambs Fundraising for Cancer Research UK Group said: “The concept of Walk all Over Cancer is simple - schools, clubs, and societies will be asked to get their pupils, staff and members to walk one mile for £1 in the week leading up to World Cancer Day on the February 4.
“With over 35,000 pupils in the area and a high number of clubs, it is hoped that many will join in with this project to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Monies raised will all be donated to local research activity in Cambridge.”
Next year’s challenge follows another of the school’s fundraising ventures – Race at your Place, which saw students and staff raise £2,896 by running or walking a 5k.
