On Tuesday 28th June, despite grey skies gathering, lots of students made their way over to the field after school and joined in with Newcastle Academy’s 2016 Race for Life event. The rain came, but didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those taking part. We had staff, students and parents involved, running 3 miles around the field in aid of Cancer Research. Once all the sponsorship money was collected, we had raised an amazing £1744.27. Well done! We are very proud of all those students involved, some of whom are photographed here.
