Tour De Wellspring

01 Oct 2020

25 Academies….263 participants….. 4952.2 miles completed in 7 days. 

September’s Tour De Wellspring 2020 initiative ran across the Trust in support of National Fitness Day and the wellbeing of our workforce. It was a brilliant success!

Health and wellbeing continues to be a key strategic priority for the Trust and it is even more important in these tricky times. It is well known that exercise has a profoundly positive impact on physical and mental health and wellbeing. It relieves stress, improves memory, helps with sleep and boosts overall mood.

Our Tour De Wellspring initiative was also a marvellous expression of togetherness of our community of schools. Two hundred and sixty-three of us walked, ran or cycled a staggering 4,952.2 miles. This included both brilliant individual achievements and a marvellous collective achievement for wellbeing and teamwork amongst our community.
