The HR4.5 fun run took place yesterday!

Students and staff from Hills Road Sixth Form College took part in the 7th annual HR4.5 fun run on Wednesday afternoon! 500 participants could be seen in their bright yellow t-shirts running, walking, hopping and skipping the 4.5 kilometre route along Hills Road, down Brooklands Avenue, along the Hobson’s Brook footpath, out onto Long Road, down Sedley Taylor Road and Luard Road and then back out onto Hills Road.

The College are aiming to raise £10,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust. Judith Anderson, Teenage Cancer Trust’s local fundraising coordinator said, “Once again Hills Road students and staff are raising funds to help Teenage Cancer Trust build and maintain wards for young people (14-24 years old) so that they can be treated for cancer in an environment that recognises the needs of young people.”

Thanks go to Cambridge Water for supplying bottles of water and S H Pratt, Luton for providing bananas to all participants, free of charge.”

This year’s fun run sponsors are ARM and Simon Humphrey, Corporate Responsibility Manager at ARM said, “We’re delighted to be sponsoring this year’s HR4.5, the funds raised by Hills Road students and staff will be going to a worthwhile charity.”
