Langley School held their second Race for Life event recently.
Girls from Years 6 to 10 dressed from head to toe in pink and completed a 5km course in the school grounds, which had the added surprise of various obstacles to overcome, including crawling under army cargo nets.
There was an opportunity also for the girls to win prizes by being creative, this included the best dressed and for the most creative journey which included dancing all the way around and a seven-legged journey!
Langley girls made a huge fund raising effort for Cancer Research UK and have been collecting money since Easter which has now reached a total of £710.26.
Emily Creed, PE and games teacher and girls ambassador for the school, said: “It was a fantastic atmosphere and it really raised awareness of the charity to all those who participated.”
