4th July 2014
The JCG mile is an annual fundraiser race held at JCG. All students participate as do many members of staff. It is a highlight of our annual fundraising calendar and last year raised £1200.
All the money raised goes towards our House charities which are charities chosen by the students and fundraising for these charities is led by the students as part of our House system which raises, on average, over £18,000 per year.
House spirit is never more evident than on JCG Mile day and it is a great opportunity for students from all year groups to come together to have fun raising money for some very good causes along with some healthy competition.
