Annual Fun Run Hopes to Raise Thousands
Friday, 20 May 2011
Bolton School Junior Boys took to the field dressed in an array of colourful fancy dress outfits in order to raise money for Derian House and for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal, through their annual Fun Run!
Pirates, cops and robbers, clowns and cowboys ran alongside characters from Star Wars, superheroes, a skeleton and Fred Flintstone! Joined by the Head of Junior Boys Mr Stephen Whittaker, the boys ran around the Senior School field for 40 minutes. The pupils ran in pairs, one would run whilst the other rested, and they were supported all the way by cheering parents. The boys hope to raise thousands which they will split between the two charities.
The annual fundraiser is the main charity event for the Junior boys and they all worked hard to raise their sponsorship and to complete the run on the day despite it being threatened by the rain! Earlier in the year the boys also helped raise money for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal by joining in a Foundation wide fundraising wear red for Japan day.
