Cook House’s TCS London Mini Marathon was a huge success earlier in the term, with boys from all Houses embracing the spirit of the marathon and community to come together in their fundraising for Diabetes UK. As a result, the grand total of money raised for this wonderful charity has hit £2743!
Boys in Reception to Year 8 took on the 2.6 miles over October Half-Term, around the time of the actual London Marathon. Boys and parents alike got extremely creative with a number of star examples shared below.
Ollie and Harrison decided to walk three miles to Adams Park as part of their challenge; a few treks around London for Toby and Thomas; Jake and Dylan completed theirs in Yorkshire; Alex went on a four day marathon in the Gower; Harry took his steps at Chesington World of Adventures and Alex even took his running bib to Rome and went around the Coliseum! A number of teachers also took part so thank you to Mrs Jackson, Mrs Prentice and Mr Homer for joining me in the event.
Seeing as Marathons are about coming together, Cook House hosted one giant House Assembly to celebrate the success of all boys in all houses in their pursuit of the TCS pin badge and certificate. With the photos displayed on the big screen, boys were called up in groups to collect their awards. An extra well done also goes to William, in Year 5, and Rayan, in Year 4, who earnt two very special London Marathon medals for their creative dress-ups.
An extremely worthwhile event which bought the Davenies community together and raised a lot of money for Diabetes UK. Thank you all who took part.
