A massive congratulations to the boys from FC Seagrave for completing their ‘March in March – 31 Miles in 31 Days’ campaign. A huge amount raised for the NHS!
After unfortunately losing some precious family members during the pandemic a couple of the boys decided to set up a fundraising page in their memory. Taking it upon themselves to do something positive during the latest Lockdown they were supported by their friends, and collectively all agreed to run / march / bike / walk a mile a day throughout the entire month of March in order to try and raise funds for the NHS.
Come rain or shine the boys have been out every day to do their bit, and momentum gathered on their challenge with donations flooding in as a result of their efforts.
As part of this incredible journey over the last few weeks, the boys have featured in the Leicester Mercury, the Loughborough Echo as well as the ‘Make a Difference’ section on BBC East Midlands Today, as well as gaining their Blue Peter Badges in the process.
The challenge culminated in yesterday’s final, socially distanced run, around the athletics track at Loughborough University in the glorious evening sunshine, where they were joined by one of their teachers who presented all the boys with medals and the fundraising cheque to signal the end of a significant achievement that all of them should be immensely proud of!
As of last night, the grand total raised from all of the boys individual fundraising pages stood at £4,520 and this is still climbing!
