We Care to Challenge

As the Olympic Games  were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic - and the school trip to Japan cancelled as a result we decided to embark upon a virtual journey from Farnborough to Tokyo instead. Our aim was to try and cover the 9,600 kilometre distance as a school community whilst out on our daily exercise!

We set off on 16th May 2020, uploading the distance of all walks/runs/cycles completed by staff, students and their families reaching Tokyo in 9 days.

Not only did we make it to Tokyo but we also completed the 24,000km round journey through 24 countries to return back home again! A huge thank you to everyone who took part and contributed to our epic journey.
