'There Were Tears, but We All Pulled Through'

September 20, 2012

HUNDREDS of people packed out the grounds of Passmores Academy on Monday to cheer on students and teachers as they completed an epic five-day endurance challenge.

The Lupus Five team overcame fatigue, injury and a few wrong turns along the way to finish their incredible 320-mile fundraiser and raise more than £14,000 for charities supporting people suffering from the auto-immune condition.

The group of Passmores staff and pupils took it in turns to undertake cycling, rowing and running relay stints alongside challenge organiser and student engagement teacher Jules Ruddick (40) as he took on the 240-mile bike ride, 21-mile row up the River Thames and two back-to-back marathons.
