Fundrais­ing run a healthy choice

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

RED­CLIFFE Pri­mary School chose to host a school fun run as a healthy al­ter­na­tive to junk-food fundrais­ing.

The $4000 raised at the Au­gust 13 adi­das School Fun-Run will be used to pur­chase sport­ing equip­ment.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Steve Daniels said it was the sec­ond event of its kind hosted by the school.

“We raised con­sid­er­able amounts of money both times; this year we were even more suc­cess­ful,” he said.

“We in­tend to buy var­i­ous pieces of sports equip­ment for the stu­dents to use to help them to be fit and healthy.

“The school is con­tin­u­ally pro­mot­ing healthy life­style choices, so the fun run fit­ted very well with that mes­sage.”
