A number of staff and pupils are running the Edinburgh 10 km race on Saturday 25 May to raise funds for LoveOliver, our winning charity in this year’s Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) programme.

We have set up a Just Giving page. Details are as follows:

LoveOliver is a charity based in Edinburgh set up by Andy and Jennifer Gill after their son, Oliver, died at of a Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor. Their vision is to strive for a country in which every family with a child diagnosed with cancer knows there is hope of a cure and that they will have appropriate financial and emotional support on their cancer journey.

This charity has helped people across Scotland and even in Knox Academy itself! LoveOliver was the winner of Knox Academy's Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) Programme in 2023/2024, and has a personal connection to one of the team.

We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to support this great charity. Participants are:

Ryan Pirie, Anya Boardman, Freya Maycock, Alice Kirkland, Lucy Darling, Matthew Davison, Helen Stoddart, Ava Middlemiss, Sam Palmer, Euan Farquhar, Emilis Vaicaitis, Fergus Allan, Rory Burns, Ms Borwick, Mr Flood.

If you would like to donate, you can do via JustGiving.
