A team of nearly 100 Chigwell School parents, staff, and Old Chigwellians ran in the Royal Parks Half Marathon for charity again this year. The team had a wonderful day running in the capital and the race took the athletes on a stunning route past many of London’s most iconic sights. All the hard work and fun saw them raise just over £87,000 for Cancer Research UK. It is brilliant to see so many of our Chigwell community come together for an exhilarating and exhausting event which has raised such a staggering total again for such an important cause.
Selena Colmer, the Senior Manager Sports at Cancer Research UK, commented, “Every year Chigwell School come out in force and fundraise enthusiastically for CRUK with a huge range of events that engages everyone: staff, alumni, governors, parents and pupils. Congratulations to each and every one of you who have taken part in an event. Whatever you have done – pulled on a pair of running shoes or supported someone else’s challenge, you are making a difference. You are helping Cancer Research UK to save lives and improve quality of life. Thank you all for your support and every penny you raise is helping us to make faster progress towards our goal of 3 in 4 people surviving cancer by 2034.”
