Students and staff from The Axholme Academy attempted to walk/jog from Lands End to John O'Groats during Sport Relief Day at the school on Friday 23rd March. This was a total distance of 1068 miles and presented an ambitious but achievable challenge for everyone! Contributions varied in distance but every student completed at least one mile at some point during the day. Khai Wilmot in Year 7 did remarkably well and completed 10 miles towards the total. 

Miss Harrison was plotting where we were on a map after each lesson and it all came down to Year 11 period 5 who needed to get us through the top of Scotland and to John O'Groats. The 1068th mile was completed by Jade Garland at about 2.40pm to complete a fantastic achievement on the day. The mile course was on the field and involved the students snaking back and forth in order to make the distance on one lap exactly one mile. Miss Harrison organised the day and ensured that all students were given the opportunity to take part. 

It was a fantastic day and one that gave everyone the opportunity to do something for a good cause. We now await to see how much has been raised in sponsorship money when that is due in following the Easter break.
