Children’s Cancer Run – Final Details For Participants

Dear Parent/Carer
With less than a week to go, we hope you are all set and ready to go for the Children’s Cancer Run this Sunday. Please see below some information for the run and if you haven’t yet registered it’s not too late to join us. 
 
School Start Time and Car Park
We have been allocated a start time of 11.30 am. If you would like to run with other pupils from school and the teachers, please meet at the school meeting point at 11.15 am and we will then walk over to the start.
 
The car park for GCMS is Car Park A.
 
T-Shirts
For those children who registered before 23rd April, run t-shirts were distributed to them at school. Any runners who registered after 23rd April will need to collect their t-shirts on the day from the T-shirt Exchange near to the 3/5 mile start. If any children need to change their t-shirts for a different size, please go to T-shirt Exchange before you run.
 
Registration is Still Open  
It isn’t too late for runners to join our team as on-line entries are open until midnight on Thursday 17th May. You can also enter on the day, however please note that the entry fee is higher for any on the day entries.
 
Sponsorship 
It would be fantastic if we can raise as much money in sponsorship for this very worthy cause. If you are running we encourage you to get sponsorship from friends and family. If you can’t run this year, why not sponsor another GCMS pupil or the teachers who are coming out in force this year! Click on this link to sponsor the teachers:
 
 
Every little counts and all of the funds raised will support the research team based at the Wolfson Childhood Cancer Research Centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne, helping children everywhere beat cancer. You can check out how our school is doing with on-line fundraising on the School Leaderboard at www.childrenscancerrun.co.uk.
 
We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.
