WAT a Run - An Unforgettable Journey of Strength, Unity and Determination Captured on Film

18th May 2023

As you may know, we at Windsor Academy Trust recently embarked on a significant challenge to put our unity, endurance, and commitment to the test. A dedicated team of over 40 staff took on an extraordinary feat of running two marathons in two days between each of our 10 schools. This event was all to raise funds for the newly established Windsor Academy Trust Community Foundation.

Today, we are thrilled to share with you an inspirational and heart-warming film that documents this epic two-day event. From the starting line to the triumphant finish and family fun run at Halesowen Athletics Club, this film captures the unity, determination and spirit of our wonderful WAT family.

But that's not all - spot the unexpected star that steals the show halfway through. Our visit to our new free school, Windsor Olympus Academy in Winson Green, brought a delightful surprise: a charming, friendly lamb who came out to cheer us on. An unforgettable moment amidst the sweat and grit, this adorable encounter showcases the unexpected joys of our journey.

Our CEO, Dawn Haywood, as well as all our brave runners, exhibited the power of resilience, camaraderie and civic responsibility through their formidable challenge. Their endeavours are a testament to our collective drive to contribute to our communities and make a tangible difference.

We're excited to share these precious moments with you. Watching this film, you'll feel the passion, the excitement, the energy and the sheer determination that radiated throughout this remarkable event.

And remember, the journey doesn't end here. The funds raised from this event will kickstart our Community Foundation, but we continue to need your support. Donations are still open, and every contribution goes towards helping disadvantaged young people and their families in our communities.

A huge thank you to Notts Sport and Amber Windows for you incredibly kind donations and headline sponsoring the event. We are extremely grateful for your support.
