Update! Race for Life 2017

This has been the first Race for Life for our new school, The Beacon Folkestone, following our Federation event last year and previous separate Races by Foxwood and by Highview School.

This year we invited our friends from health and social services who are based at The Beacon to join us and our families raising money for Cancer Research UK, which is again one of our three chosen special charities for the year.

Following recent tradition, to add to the occasion, we asked participants to come to school wearing something pink, or in fancy dress, or in their favourite dressing up outfit, and we certainly saw some unusual sights both from pupils and staff!

We are grateful to our neighbours, The Folkestone Academy, for the loan of their facilities during the morning, and especially to their many Sports Leaders who helped in many and varied ways to make the event so successful.

A huge “thank you” goes to everyone who has sponsored us this year. At this current time, we have raised the fantastic total of

£3057.48. The JustGiving page remains open if you wish to donate!

For those who would still like to donate, please go to our own official on-line Race for Life JustGiving page, through which you can donate directly to Cancer Research UK. Please see the links below.
