Year 7 Running to Raise Money for Dol y Moch!

On Sunday a group of students from the Bridge took part in the Dol y Moch mile in Coventry city centre.

The race took part on the Coventry half marathon course and was a mile course around the centre; with student getting to run past famous Coventry landmarks. 

All money from the race will go towards the upkeep of Dol y Moch which is a activity centre in Wales for Coventry students.  We are still collecting the sponsorship money but early estimates are that the Bridge students will have raised approximately £400 for Dol y Moch. 

This is a start of 13 challenges that the students will be completing to help them get fit and to also put towards their Children's University qualification.                                             

The thing I enjoyed about the Dol y Moch Mile, was that the money went to a charity and people are getting out of their houses and exercising.”                                                                                                                                                           Todd Harrison, 7 Leeds

I enjoyed the Dol y Moch Mile because we raised money and  I enjoyed running it.”                                                                                                                                     Kitti Elliot, 7 York

The reason why I took part in the Dol y Moch Mile, was because I wanted to raise money for charity and it was fun to meet up with my friends - I also like running!”                                                                                                                                    Kyle Ward, 7 Leeds
