Bassingbourn’s Virtual Trek 2022

As part of our drive to encourage our students to be physically active and to fundraise for the local community we are inviting all students to take part once again in a sponsored virtual walk/run/cycle. The event will run between Monday 28th March and Sunday 10th April to allow students to participate over the first week of the Easter holidays. We have a goal to cover a collective distance of around 9000 miles, which equates to approximately a mile a day for each member of the school community over the fortnight.

This year we have chosen to travel around the USA, starting at Harvard University and ending at MIT, both in Cambridge, Massachusetts, going via places such as Orlando, Los Angeles and Seattle and will visit a range of different states and landmarks. We will be updating our website and social media each day to show the progress being made along our virtual trek and how the different colleges are doing.

We inviting students to fundraise for every mile they complete with monies raised this year going to the very deserving East Anglian Air Ambulance, a local charity that delivers highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air to seriously ill or injured people.  More information about the East Anglian Air Ambulance can be found here: https://www.eaaa.org.uk .

The fundraising will also form part of an intercollege competition and every pound a student raises will contribute to their college points. We will be using a separate JustGiving page for each college to be able to see how much each has raised and ask that those donating use the following links:
