Stu­dents in race to raise funds

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

THREE hun­dred and eighty one stu­dents at Biloela State School have raised $10,337.61 after tak­ing part in a School Fun Run to raise much­needed funds for their school.

Lise Haber­mann, from Biloela State School, said the stu­dents’ com­mit­ment to the fun run was se­cond to none.

“Our stu­dents are so ex­cited about the money they’ve helped raise for school re­sources, and they thor­oughly en­joyed par­tic­i­pat­ing in the School Fun Run along­side their peers as they cheered each other on,” Ms Haber­mann said.

School Fun Run pro­gram di­rec­tor Bren­dan Hopp said the or­gan­i­sa­tion took great pride in help­ing schools im­prove stu­dent well-be­ing and their learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“The School Fun Run has been sup­port­ing schools for more than 30 years,” Mr Hopp said.

“As one of the few school fundrais­ers in Aus­tralia that is purely health based, we love see­ing the kids take part as they work on build­ing ac­tive and healthy life­styles.”

More than 280,000 stu­dents will take part in the School Fun Run this year.

They will jog 560,000km and raise around $6 mil­lion this year.
