Fundraising event for the Camps International Expedition to Peru
This Sunday, pupils going on the Camps International Expedition to Peru this summer competed in the Bolton 10K race as part of their fund-raising for the trip. Miss Bruce, Miss Shaw, Dr Watson and our Spanish Language Assistant, Pilar raced alongside them and there was lots of support in the crowd for the Westholme team!
It was a rather damp and chilly morning, but the girls did not let their pre-race nerves get to them as they stormed around the course.
A particular highlight (or ‘lowlight’) for all was the monster hill which they had to run up TWICE and Olivia found it difficult running through the residential area as ‘people were sat outside their houses chilling while we were all puffed out!’
The event certainly was a challenge and showed determination and grit from all. It should prove good preparation for our exciting trek in the Andes to the ancient site of Machu Picchu.
Congratulations go to all who took part for achieving this amazing feat.
