The team at the GFC School are taking on a challenge this Red Nose Day!
Hiking shoes and bike helmets on because… It’s another COLOSSAL Red Nose Day challenge for The GFC School!
Staff and students will not only be ‘scaling’ the highest points of England, Scotland and Wales on March 17th but they will also be cycling the distance between them.
The school will be using the stairs of the Rainham End stand to walk up throughout the day to match the amount of steps it would take to ascend Snowdon (1085m), Ben Nevis (1344m) and Scafell Pike (978m) as well as getting on their bikes to replicate the 462 gruelling miles it would take to travel to each point.
“The Three Peaks challenge is a titanic mission for our students,” said PE teacher Tom Creed. “It will take an incredible amount of effort and drive, but they are excited and definitely up for it.”
