Students and staff from Hills Road Sixth Form College launched their 7th annual HR4.5 fun run
on Monday. To date, this event has raised £50,000!
This year’s fun run is being sponsored by ARM and Simon Humphrey came along to the launch
at the College along with Judith Anderson, local fundraising coordinator from Teenage Cancer
Trust, the charity that will benefit from this year’s proceeds. 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.”
500 runners will be wearing bright yellow t-shirts displaying this year’s logo, which has been designed by Hills Road student Daniel Hammond, 17.
Judith from Teenage Cancer Trust said, “Hills Road are once again 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.”
Rob Leslie, Maths teacher and one of the organisers said, “This year we are hoping to raise £10,000 and thanks to our sponsors ARM, all the money raised will go to Teenage Cancer Trust.”
Look out for the runners in their bright yellow t-shirts on Wednesday 23rd April. They will be 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.
