Olympic challenge for Erewash kids

More than 14,000 children across Erewash have been invited to take part in events to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics.

Erewash School Sport Partnership is inviting 46 schools in the borough to be part of the Launch to London challenge during National School Sport Week this week.

The idea is to get each pupil to perform a run, throw and jump, which will be measured and a total distance collected for every county school.
