Active EIC community raises over 1,000 euros for the health service

  • Pupils, staff and parents at the school in Marbella have now completed their 4,200-kilometre virtual loop of Spain

Following an immense community effort by the school and parent body at the English International College (EIC) in Marbella, Tuesday afternoon saw the conclusion of EIC's 4,200-kilometre Virtual Loop of Spain.

The responsibility of the final 13 kilometres fell on students Emily and Kevin whose campo cycle around the EIC's surroundings took the challenge, enjoyed by more than 250 participants who had their movements (walking, cycling, swimming...) tracked by an online app, across the finishing line after four weeks.

The EIC Movement Challenge Fundraiser has now raised over 1,100 euros for the Servicio Andaluz de Salud.

After featuring in SUR in English two weeks ago, EIC has now been approached by St Anthony's College to participate in a joint virtual duathlon.
