Race for Life 2022
On the last Sunday of the academic year, we were given the opportunity to take part in Cancer Research’s 5K Race for Life!
Cancer affects 2 in 5 of us, meaning the cause is particularly close to our hearts. Cancer Research UK sponsors finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, helping to save more lives.
We all worked very hard in getting our sponsorships, knocking on doors, and pestering teachers is never too much when it comes to charity. As a result, we were all really motivated and enthused when we got to the start line in St. Dominic’s Park. Our sponsorships meant that every agonising step we took was worth it.
The event was a testament to the College's vast array of athletes, even if some walked at a leisurely pace. Although the winning time was 18 minutes, if the day was about distance, Helena’s dogs would surely have the top prize.
Pink is the colour of love, but on Sunday it was the colour of sheer determination.
Charity is central to the college’s Catholic ethos, so I’m pleased to say we’ve outdone ourselves as a devoted community that cares.
Well done to everyone who took part!
