KES to Paris!

breast cancer200Thurs­day 10th Decem­ber saw 31 stu­dents from Eagles House embark on a mas­sive chal­lenge to raise money for our two cho­sen char­i­ties this year — Can­cer Research UK and Breast Can­cer Care.

The chal­lenge was sim­ple — to travel the dis­tance from our school to Paris in six hours by RUN­NING to Dover, ROW­ING to Calais and CYCLING to Paris. The 31 stu­dents worked in ten relay teams in the school fit­ness stu­dio and under­took five 30 minute shifts dur­ing the day cov­er­ing all the dis­ci­plines to cover the dis­tance. It was a mas­sive task and by the end of the day the stu­dents were utterly exhausted but they achieved their goal.

In total the stu­dents trav­elled 398 km (85 km run­ning, 58 km row­ing and 255 km cycling) — our tar­get was only 378 km! The stu­dents were mag­nif­i­cent dur­ing this gar­gan­tuan effort and now the big task is col­lect­ing in all the spon­sor money which we hope to exceed at least £700. Dona­tions to our cause can also be made via our fundrais­ing pages on line at www​.just​giv​ing​.com/​k​e​s​e​a​g​l​e​s OR www​.vir​gin​money​giv​ing​.com.

The stu­dent roll of hon­our for this event was Oliver Bar­rett, Abi­gail Carl­ton, Baran Cicek, Jake Con­sta­ble, Aston Fred­er­icks, Cal­lum Friend, Danny Gilbert-​Wynde, Mar­cos Green,Leo Hewitt, Syd­ney Hod­der, Alfie Hughes, Chelsea Irv­ing, Ryan Jones, Archie Lucas, Ethan Macabe-​Fisher, Lily Marsh, Tamzin Moor, Lewis North, Alfie Pen­nie, Claire Rus­sell, Lewis Rye, Jamil Saidy­jah, Gemma South­wood, Kai Stokes, Jade Styles, Nicole Thomas, Noah Turner, Rowan Tyler, James Warnes, Paige Williams, Tia Woodcock.
