Belfast Girls Walk for the Cure

27 June 2012

Pupils from Belfast Model School for Girls took part in a walk to cure at their school to raise a fantastic £600 for JDRF.

The girls paid £2 to take part and got extra sponsorship from friends and family.

Teacher Julie Allen said:

“Due to the bad weather on Friday, we set up a circuit in our sports hall for the pupils to walk around. This turned out quite well as we were able to play music and the pupils really enjoyed themselves. I downloaded a video from YouTube called Blake’s Battle which is about a young boy with type 1 diabetes. I sent this to staff and they showed it to their classes a week before the walk to encourage pupils to take part.

We were delighted to raise awareness and such an amount of money towards the cure for type 1 diabetes.”
