March miles challenge motivates fitness and fundraising in memory of Dave Clark

March Miles, an inclusive fitness challenge, aims to clock up 8,000 miles by motivating Richmond School and Sixth Form students and staff to walk, cycle, run and raise money for two very worthy causes throughout the month of March. The target of 8,000 miles is the area covered by the Great North Air Ambulance Service and 50% of the money raised will be donated to the charity, with the other 50% to refurbish the school’s fitness room with inclusive equipment. The initiative, organised by PE teachers Jack Moore and Helen Southgate, is in memory of Dave Clark, the school’s former Deputy Headteacher who was a keen sportsman and lover of the great outdoors.
