Regular readers of the Cirkle news pages may have picked up on certain trend we have towards fitness and our ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ attitude. So it will come as no surprise to learn that last week we organised a Fun Run to raise money for two local secondary schools.

We led a committee of parents from both schools and got off to a flying start by securing former British gold medalist, Linford Christie, to open the run, and Tesco to be the lead sponsor, helping to donate over £10,000 of sponsorship money. We also established an exclusive partnership with leading local paper, the Buckinghamshire Advertiser & Examiner who provided strong and positive editorial coverage.

The Fun Run took place on Friday 19th March and was a roaring success with nearly 2,000 students and teachers taking part in full fancy dress costume to raise funds for key projects at their schools. Our CEO and Founder, Caroline Kinsey, even entered into the spirit of things by dressing as a pink fairy!

As it stands, the fun run has so far raised £17,000 which will be divided equally between both schools to help them fund new projects. In fact, they are so pleased with the success and collaboration between them that they intend to make this an annual event.

Caroline Kinsey, CEO / Founder of Cirkle said: ‘It was absolutely worth every bit of the effort – it's been overwhelmingly successful. I'm truly delighted with the effort the students put into their costumes and with the whole atmosphere of the day. It is great to be part of such a wonderful local event, especially as it is the first time the two leading schools in the area have come together on such a grand scale.’
