challenge_271_sponge_event-14-2

A teacher at Kingsbury High School will embark on a gruelling challenge to cover 271km in just five days. The physical Education teacher, Gary Froy will run three 40km marathons and cycle two 75km bike rides to cover the distance.

The challenge aims to raise awareness and money for Kidney Research UK. Gary’s five day challenge, #challenge271, will take place during 26th – 30th May 2015, but Gary launched the project in school on the 3rd December 2014: a year after the loss of his father, Colin Froy, Police Constable 271, Hertfordshire Police.

Since the launch, Year 8 students have been holding mini fund raising projects within the school to help Gary on his way. The latest ‘Sponge the Staff!’ event took place on Friday 13th February 2015 in the lower school playground and raised a total of £145 which will go towards Challenge 271.
