Young runners on the prowl
Friday, 8th May, 2015
Students from Broken Hill High School will be running in the adidas School Fun-Run to raise extra funds for their school on May 11.
Students have already started seeking support from the local community for running in the event and will continue to do so as sponsorship is vital to make their fundraiser a success.
Jennifer Dannatt, from Broken Hill High School, said the adidas School Fun-Run presented an excellent platform to get students excited about physical activity.
“I’m proud to be involved in a program that raises money for our school while delivering positive messages about the importance of physical activity to children’s health, growth and development,” she said.
General Manager of The Fundraising Group, Brendan Hopp, said it was wonderful that organisations such as adidas and CUA are making this style of health-based school fundraising possible as this sector is traditionally dominated by junk food fundraisers.
Over the last four years the adidas School Fun-Run has helped schools to raise over $11.4 million to purchase computers, books, sporting equipment and other resources.
