FoSS Half Marathon Fundraiser

26th May 2017

Last Saturday, after months of training and fundraising, - 35 intrepid mums, dads, friends, teachers and pupils set off from the school to run 12k/ or half marathon. Mrs Gwilliam ran a “wake up, shake up” to get everyone in the mood – and then we were off! The scenery was lovely and the team spirit amazing from runners, marshals and supporters alike. The torrential downpour was less welcome; but although drenched through, everyone battled on rewarded by great cheers from the support team on the field!

It was a great day – despite the rain, with many people pushing themselves to achieve far more than they had imagined! The camaraderie and support was fantastic. What a great team – thank you to everyone who trained, ran, walked, marshalled, timed, first aided, cheered, sponsored, match funded and fundraised…

This massive Sparsholt team effort has raised a fantastic £5300!

All money will go towards the playground improvement project, which at a time when funding is being cut, relies completely on our fundraising efforts.
