Wisbech Grammar School have committed to ‘Walk all Over Cancer’.

Wisbech Grammar School have committed to ‘Walk all Over Cancer’.

In a life-saving fundraising effort, pupils, and staff at WGS are uniting in one incredible #actofunity for World Cancer Day 2018, 4 February.

 

Mr Staley, Headmaster of Wisbech Grammar School, has signed up as the first school committed to supporting the North Cambridgeshire Fundraisers for Cancer Research in their new local project aimed at schools, clubs, and societies. Walk All over Cancer will be officially launched on the 30 October 2017.

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 4 February 2018. 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."

 

 

Every day around 11 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. Despite improving survival rates, cancer is the leading cause of death in children, teenagers, and young adults.

This simple fundraising effort will raise money to help beat cancer sooner, enhance the education of many young people and encourage them to undertake some physical fitness too!

WGS pupils are passionate about fundraising, and their latest fundraising efforts saw the School hand over a cheque to Cancer Research UK for a staggering £2,896.20.

The School generated funds by holding  ‘Race at your Place’ on the 5 July 2017, where pupils from all years, staff, parents, and friends of Wisbech Grammar School donned on their running shoes and tutus and ran, jogged or walked 5k.
