Students and staff at Wakefield Girls’ High School tackled an endurance challenge for a cause close to their hearts.
Around 70 students and 20 staff took part in the 24-hour ‘gymathon’ in aid of the Back Up charity.
The charity helped Wakefield Girls’ High pupil Sophie Carrigill, pictured with Alex Brown, Lora Colwood, Nat Brown, Lou Lumley, Hollie Firth, Beth Atkinson, Lucie Baker, and Lucy Larveth-Johnson, turn her hand to wheelchair basketball after she was paralysed in a car crash in America in 2010.
Sophie, 18, from West Ardsley, said: “If it were not for Back Up I would not have got back into sport again and be happy living my life as normally as possible.
“I am really grateful to everyone who took part [in the gymathon].”
Teams-of-six used various pieces of gym equipment at Wakefield Girls’ High throughout the 24-hour fundraiser.
The event generated more than £1,700 for Back Up.
