The Sheringdale Marathon to raise money for a trip to the seaside and to help get your children fit and active.
We hope everyone is making great progress with the Sheringdale Marathon and pestering family and friends to sponsor them! If you’ve not got involved yet, there’s still time, especially to do the half marathon or go for the full marathon and tally everything up in retrospect.
To celebrate the end of the marathon fundraiser, the PTA has organised a meet up at Coronation Gardens on Sunday 20th June (after Father’s Day lunches), from 3.30-5pm. Mums and dads can relax on a picnic blanket while their little runners clock up any additional laps / miles needed to finish their goal. The fastest lap and funniest outfit will both get a bonus mile and a treat to take home! Also an ideal opportunity to meet up with class friends and parents over the weekend. We hope to see you there!
We would love to see photos of your children out running/walking and if you’re happy for us to share them on social media, please either tag the PTA on Instagram or Facebook or email them through to us at email@example.com.
GET YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO SUPPORT and SPONSOR YOU NOW!
