Weʼre raising £6,000 to help fund a Daily Mile Track around Charvil Piggott Primary School
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are a group of parents and teachers running the Reading Half Marathon on 5th April 2020 to raise money for the Charvil Piggott School Association to install a Daily Mile Track at Charvil Piggott Primary School.
Our runners are: Alys Hilbourne, Caroline Hatchett-Walker, Cathy Jeffrey, Chloe Cox, Chris Edwards, Clare Morrison, Gemma Edwards, Graham Sewell, Jessica Sewell, Mr Hillerton, Lee Fellowes, Mr Hamilton, Matt Hatchett-Walker, Paul Morris, Sarah Hilling, Sarah Townsend, Stephanie Parker and Tom Loudon
The Daily Mile is simple and free and gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.
The Daily Mile Works! It takes place in 15 minutes, with most children averaging a mile, or more, each day. Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier. There’s no set up, tidy up, or equipment required. No staff training is needed and there is no extra workload for teachers. Children run in their uniforms so no kit or changing time is needed. It’s social, non-competitive and fun. The children return to class ready to learn. It helps to improve fitness and achieve a healthy weight and supports emotional wellbeing. It encourages children to be aware of their health. It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, can succeed at The Daily Mile.
Please support this excellent cause so Charvil Piggott School can have their own Daily Mile track to implement this wonderful initiative for the children of the school.
