And we are off!
Miss Cox and Mr Dare started the 24-hour challenge at 12.30pm along with our Head Boy and Girl, Mo and Laura.
More pictures to follow and don’t forget to keep up to date with our progress on the live link.
Chris will be riding alongside us so please donate to keep us all going!
We also made it into the Leicester Mercury today – take a look at the article here.
For the past 4 years, the PE department at Guthlaxton College have organised numerous crazy 24 hour challenges, raising thousands of pounds for Sports Relief. This year, now as Wigston College, we have decided to add a twist to this tradition. Former student, Chris Mark is currently cycling from Alaska to Argentina, in aid of Wishes for Kids, and in memory of his sister. The PE department have therefore decided to use cycling as the focus of this year’s challenge, supporting Chris and raising money for both Sport Relief and Wishes for Kids.
Staff, students and guests will be using spin bikes to try and cycle the distance from the capital of Peru to the Bolivian Border (or Beyond!!), where Chris aims to be around the time of the challenge. We will be showing the challenge on a Webcam, so you can stay updated with progress.
