Ark BDA Takes on the Thames

What is the Ark Sports Day Challenge?

Ark is an education charity that ensures that all children, regardless of their background, have access to a great education and real choices in life.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students' lives and education have been disrupted and special occasions such as  the school sports day won't take place in person this year – so we’re doing something different.

Our goal is to collectively travel the distance around the world, which equals 40,000km.

We want to do something fun, healthy and positive, while raising money to help our schools and students recover from the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and build the resilience they need for the future.

We're asking  you - our community of students, teachers, supporters, and friends - to do an activity that adds to the kilometre count and helps us reach our target. Let's inspire each other with what we can achieve together – doing something fun, healthy, and positive along our way.
