Amity Global School Cross-Country Run
The Amity Global School Cross-Country Run took place on the 3rd of February, 2015 at the Leisure Valley Park in Gurgaon to raise awareness on cancer. Students from primary, middle, and secondary classes took part in 200m to 2km runs respectively around the park. The teachers were not left out! They took part in a 1km run as well.
Upon arrival at the venue, the students were briefed on the rules before the younger classes began the run. They were cheered on by their teachers as well as students and when they had successfully completed the run, the senior students who the 8th grade and above, began their run. While some were fast and completed the course in a matter of minutes, others walked to the finish line, but no one was left behind and all the students took part, whether by running or by walking. One student was even inspired to begin exercising more often! It was an eye-opening experience for many.
But the day was not yet over! The teachers had not yet run their race! The starting point was marked and the teachers’ race was flagged off, the day was a huge success.
