This morning our sports students took part in a ‘Santa Dash’ to raise money and awareness for the when you wish upon a star charity.
Santa Dash for a good cause.
35 students in total took part in the Santa dash event held at the college to raise awareness and funds for the, ‘When you wish upon a star’ charity. The charity event included planning the route, organising sponsorship forms and hats. The students ran/walked a total 1.5 miles and are hoping that this will become an annual event.
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. The charity was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White OBE who was so inspired by a seriously ill four year old with a dream to meet Mickey Mouse that she wanted to bring smiles to the faces of many more brave and courageous children. Our Wishes have the power to transform the lives of the children and families we work with and since 1990 we have proudly granted over 18000 Wishes across the UK.
