TCA’s 5k challenge for the NHS

Thomas Clarkson Academy has challenged students and staff to walk, run or cycle 5k to raise money for the local hospital.



The PE department launched the challenge this week and has set an initial target of raising £1,500 for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn.

With a number of our students already showing their support for the NHS with various individual challenges, this will be an opportunity for TCA to come together and raise money as a team.

Head of PE Mr Hooper said: “I have no doubt our students will rise to the challenge and help support this great local cause."

Students and staff taking part in the challenge can ask friends and family to make a donation in support of their efforts via the Just Giving website.  

They can also record their 5ks here so the PE department can make a leader board - the competing groups are: Madiba, Pankhurst, King, Sixth Form and staff. The 5k challenge can be completed in stages or all in one go.

Miss Anderson, Second in PE, added: “We all know the super work that the NHS are doing on the frontline, and the funds raised will support this work. Students and staff taking part will feel a sense of achievement having completed the challenge and also a feeling of togetherness, knowing that they are part of something bigger, in terms of TCA’s team effort.”

TCA’s 5k Challenge is part of a collaborative effort by a number of Isle of Ely schools keen to support their local hospitals.
