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.
