The British School of Almeria, in collaboration with the Seur Foundation and the Unoentrecienmil Foundation, organised the charity run “La Vuelta Al Cole” at its facilities in Roquetas de Mar. Funds were raised to finance research projects to help find a cure for this disease. Hundreds of pupils, parents of pupils and all the school staff took part in the walk, running between one and two kilometres, depending on the year and age of the students.
La Vuelta Al Cole is a solidarity race that motivates thousands of children to take action and run to ensure that all children suffering from leukaemia can recover and return to school soon. Each participant receives a race bib and a diploma at the end of the race and, with a donation of €1, supports research into this disease.
As Gillian Greaves, Director of BSA commented, “This is a unique opportunity to share the values of empathy and solidarity with students from The British School of Almeria. Our students have run for other children and in this way, both the children and their families join the Unoentrecienmil cause”.
At the end of the event, The British School of Almeria presented the financial contribution of the students, staff and the school to the Unoentrecienmil Foundation, which uses the proceeds to promote research projects on childhood leukaemia under the slogan “Leukaemia is an enemy too strong for one, but not for a hundred thousand”.
