PGS: 50 Ways to 50K
Fundraising for Sheffield Children's Hospital

Penistone Grammar School have supported Sheffield Children's Hospital for the past 4 years, reflecting the incredible support the hospital gives to some of its school community. To date they have raised just shy of £46,000 and are hoping to hit the £50,000 milestone before they break up for summer. To do this staff and students are taking on a range of challenges, from walks to runs and everything in between.


Adam Gillett, Assistant Principal and charity lead at Penistone, is taking on the Peak Challenge, running 50km (31 miles) on Saturday 9th July and then another 50km on Sunday 10th July. The challenge involves over 2500 metres of ascent and given he's never run beyond half-marathon distance promises to be a real challenge. Adam said, "The hospital means such a lot to our school community and even though it'll be the hardest thing I'll ever do, I can't think of a better cause to do it for".


Other staff taking part in the challenge are:

  • The Maths Department are tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. This challenge is a circular walk which encompasses three major peaks in the Yorkshire Dales, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough. It is a gruelling 24.5 miles walk with 2153 metres elevation!

  • Mrs Taylor is tackling the Penistone Boundary Walk, an undulating 16 mile walk around our wonderful community. If you see her in action, give her a cheer!

  • Mrs Kelly (Post 16) and her daughter are identifying 50 different species of plant, tree, bird, insect and animal on our walks around Penistone and the surrounding areas.

  • Ms Pestell will be walking 150km in June as well as completing 150 squats and 150 sit ups a day.

  • Mrs Richardson will be running 50km on the challenge weekend (9-10 July).

  • Mr Wright is walking 30 miles on a gruelling up and down route across West and South Yorkshire.

  • Mrs Thornhill is climbing Kinder Scout, navigating the steep 610 metre climb!
