CHARITY FUN RUN
I am writing to invite you to join us for our Annual Fun Run which will be held this year on Sunday 18th August. The run starts from the school grounds and participants are able to choose to take part in a 2, 5 or 10 kilometre run.
Last year we raised a total of $15,450 which was donated to the children’s hospital and this year we expect to raise over $16,000. This year, we are raising money which will be used to develop the village recreational centre.
To confirm your registration, email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01784 5337841. As soon as you are registered you simply start collecting your sponsors and come along on the day!
Further instructions are found below, please read them carefully.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 18th August,
Fun Run Coordinator
Thanks in advance for your support!
Moorfields School Fun Run
10 Kilometer Run – 8am
5 Kilometer Run – 8.30am
2 Kilometer Run – 9am
Details are available on our website www.moorfieldsschool.com and will also be available on the day from school reception. All routes will be signposted and there will be marshals stationed along the routes providing cold drinks for runners. If you feel ill or need assistance at any time during the run, please let one of the marshals know and they will be able to help you.
WHAT TO WEAR
Shorts and tee-shirts should be fine; however, we recommend you bring a light raincoat in case of bad weather. Comfortable running shoes are a must! Please avoid wearing new trainers on the day to avoid foot problems.
The school car park behind C-block (the language department) will be open on the day. Drive in through the main gates then turn right. Westhill Leisure Centre (across the road from the school) will also allow runners to park their cars there on the day.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE RUN?
There will be a number of entertainers including face-painting and the school band. Food and drink stalls will be available. There will also be a prize-giving event for runners who finish 1st and 2nd in each of the runs and two cinema tickets are available for the best fancy dress if you are interested in running in a special costume!
We expect the whole day to finish at around 4pm.
