Science students at Southport College recently took part in Mission Survive!
Mission Survive is an exhilarating and uplifting outdoor adventure for all ages. Under the watchful eye of highly-trained instructors, participants are encouraged and empowered as they take on a series of Challenges, specially designed to develop life skills. Before you know it, you’ll be facing fears and achieving more than you ever believed you could. You don’t have to be fighting fit or as strong as an ox to take part. A positive attitude and a good sense of humour are far more important.
The students had the chance to complete a range of activities during the two day trip in Coniston, Cumbria including:
• Zip Wiring
• Exploring Tunnels and Caves
• Climbing & Abseiling Cliffs
• Cliff Jumping
• Food Taste Testing
• Problem Solving
The purpose of the event was not only to encourage and empower the students to challenge themselves but to raise money for a very worthy cause. North West Cancer Research is the only independent cancer research charity fighting the toughest cancers in North West England and North Wales. The charity only funds the very best cancer research into fighting those cancers that affect you locally. The carefully targeted research is independently and internationally scrutinized to make sure your donation makes the biggest difference possible. £13 million will be spent on cancer research over the next five years and every penny raised will go towards this ground breaking research.
The students were asked to raise a minimum of £250 to help support NWCR. The students raised the money by holding cake sales, escape room activities and more! If you would like to donate to NWCR click here: http://www.nwcr.org/
