Marathon for Nelson kids
5:25pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A NELSON school will take part in the world’s largest children’s running event next month.
Marsden Heights Community College pupils are preparing for the World Marathon Challenge on October 23, which will see them raise money for Save the Children.
Headteacher Mike Tull said: “We’re all really excited about the event.
“As well as giving the children an exciting sports event in which they can take part in, it’s a great way of getting the school to work together for a common fundraising goal.
“On top of this, the lesson plans help the pupils understand the problems faced by other young people like them across the world.”
