We are running for St Helens!
28 February 2018
As part of our 60th anniversary celebrations this year, St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School will be taking part in Sunday’s St Helens 10K. All monies raised by Team StCuthberts4Precky will be shared equally between the school’s Student Wellbeing Fund and The Steve Prescott Foundation.
Since the start of the St Helens 10K Run in 2010, as a school St Cuthbert’s have always been represented well with many older students and staff taking part. Last year was no exception when a number of staff braved the wind and rain to finish the 6.2mile course and to don the "North Road survivor" t-shirt in triumph!
This year, the team of 27 includes students and staff, both current and past, staff partners and friends of St Cuthbert's. Mrs Catherine Twist, Headteacher will also be taking part together with our current Y11 student Cody R.
Today, Martin Blondell and Linzi Prescott from The Steve Prescott Foundation visited us at school and passed on our Team Precky Technical T Shirts which team members can use to train and run in on the day.
Mrs Twist said “The support and donations we have received so far from colleagues, parents, friends and family have been fantastic. As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of St Cuthbert’s this year, by entering a team for the St Helens 10K we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to raise the school’s profile and share our message with the rest of the town. As a school we are passionate about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and by involving ourselves in this event we continue to embrace this ethos as a whole community and leading by example”.
Linzi Prescott said “We are very proud that Team St Cuthbert’s are supporting The Steve Prescott Foundation and the GWP Recruitment St Helens 10K run as part of their 60 year celebrations. It will be great to see them running the course in their team t-shirts, continuing Stephen’s legacy. Thank you to all the team for their efforts and I wish you all the best of luck on the day”.
