2014 FAO Hunger Run

St. George's took part in the FAO Hunger Run on Sunday 19th October, which marked World Food Day.

For the first time, St George's British International School formed a team with other Rome IB Schools: American Overseas, Marymount International, Rome International and St. Stephen's School, to create “TEAM IB SCHOOLS OF ROME”. Students from these five IB schools participated in the 5km fun run - a lovely route in a unique, traffic free setting, suitable for all ages, abilities and speeds. The weather was fine and sunny, and students and parents alike had a great (if exhausting) day!

190 St George's students took part in the run, and 890 from the IB Schools Team. The total number of runners was in the thousands.

Nearly 9000 euros was raised between the 5 schools (final figure still to be communicated), which will contribute to providing school meals for children in need.
