Fancy Dress Fun Run for Charity
Friday, 25 June 2010
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 Cancer Research through their annual Fun Run!
Rock stars, bananas, clowns and cowboys ran alongside characters from Star Wars, penguins, chefs, and various sportsmen including cricketers and footballers! Joined by the Head of Junior Boys Mr Stephen Whittaker, and ADT Coordinator Mr Tim Dickinson, the boys ran around the Senior School running track 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 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 on such a warm afternoon!
Head, Stephen Whittaker, said: "The boys all made a fantastic effort today! Taking part in events like this is important as it gives them a sense of responsibility and benevolence towards others, and allows them to engage with the world outside of school in a fun way."
