The QEGS 1 Mile Challenge… At Home!

A staple in the QEGS calendar, unfortunately the annual Sports Day cannot take place in the same way this year. However, in its place, QEGS’ Sport staff are arranging a virtual fun run and we want you to get involved!

On Tuesday 7th July, those staff, pupils and students in school will take part in 5 short fun runs in Corporation Park and those who are at home are being asked to take part in their own run, with a parent or carer, and share their photos and videos with us!

This year’s fun run will support ‘Breast Cancer Now’ and ‘Children with Cancer UK’ and all those who take part will be asked to make a suggested donation of £2, via our Just Giving page.

We would love for parents and carers to encourage their child to run one mile at home, wearing bright colours (or fancy dress if you would like!) and send photos or short 10-second videos to GAvery@QegsBlackburn.com, on or before 7th July 2020. Photos and videos would ideally be captured in landscape orientation, and we will then create a montage video of the day to celebrate what a wonderfully active and supportive community we have at QEGS

Over the next week, in the lead up to the event, we will be sharing videos from staff and pupils on why we would like you to get involved and why we are supporting the two charities above.

So, lace up your trainers, take a photo or video and we will see you on the virtual finish line!
