Fun Run on Lismore!

Lismore Primary School hosted a Charity Fun Run for the North Lorn Co-op Schools on Tuesday afternoon to raise money for Argyll Beats Cardiovascular Disease. The event was a follow up to last week’s Health and Well-being Day held at Strath of Appin Primary School.
The Lismore children have spent some time planning the event in previous weeks. They made a Fitness Training DVD to send to the other schools taking part; they designed a sponsor form and safety posters; they made their own Risk Assessment of the event and helped to plan the route.
The children travelled over to Lismore on the ferry and were taken to the start by minibus. They were given a healthy snack before taking part in a warm up led by the Oban High School Sports Leaders. Everyone was very enthusiastic and determined to run the whole of the 2km route. The training in previous weeks paid off and it wasn’t long before the first runners were crossing the finish line where each child received a medal, a t shirt and a goody bag. There was then time to relax and sit in the sun with a packed lunch by the sea before the return ferry trip to the mainland.
