Stretford goes the extra mile for Sport Relief!

Over £500 was raised for Sport Relief on
Friday 19th March as Stretford High School
went red for the day!
Throughout the day, every student and staff
made their way out to the specially marked
out Sport Relief Mile.
Students completed the course by either
walking or running the distance. Thankfully
the weather made the day run smoothly and
Project 9 students marshaled the course
throughout the day.
Sport Relief is the sporting arm of the Comic
Relief Charity that aims to support vulnerable
people both in the UK and overseas. 50% of
the money raised is spent in UK charities. By searching on the Sport Relief website, SSM found
out about 6 charities all within 5 miles of school who
2010 has so far seen £32 million pounds have received nearly £2 million pounds work of fund-
raised and every penny counts! Just £5 buys ing from Comic Relief!
