Race for Life

Crabtree Farm Primary School is holding its very own Race for Life event for Cancer Research UK and we’d love your child to join the fun.

Our youngsters are the generation that could see ground-breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They’re the young warriors who could be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. By taking part in Race for Life and uniting together against cancer, they’ll be doing something really special.

Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for their research, so the more of us who join the fight against cancer, the more money we can raise to beat cancer sooner.

We’ll Race for Life: On the field at Crabtree Farm Primary School

On Wednesday 23rd May (weather permitting)

Children will be given the choice of walking or running 1km or 2km on the school field.

Years 1-6 children will have their PE kit in school but please ensure they also have suitable trainers/plimsolls for running and a water bottle. Children in Early Years are asked to wear sportswear and trainers all day e.g. shorts and t-shirt. We will be selling squash and snacks on the day so please bring a few extra pennies.

Please complete the form on the back to give your child permission to unite with us at our Race for Life and let us know if you’d like to come along and join in too. Then please send the form back to us at school.

Rather than children collecting individual sponsorship, we are asking that each child pays £1 to take part. If, in addition, you would like to sponsor your child, or you have friends or family members who would be willing to sponsor them, please use the attached sponsor form. Alternatively, you can sponsor directly online by clicking here. The class that raises the most money will win a prize!

Let’s raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research as well as having great fun in Crabtree Farm’s Race for Life!

If you would like to come along to race, please make your way onto the school playground through the main gate, ten minutes before your child’s class is due to race. Children acting as marshals in high-vis vests will be there to greet you and direct you to the right area. This will either be:

-The meeting point on the KS1 yard where you will meet your child ready to race or

-The spectator area on the field where you will watch and cheer the children on but not race.
