TRINITY College students have taken part in an annual fun run to raise money for mission programs in India.

The Fun Run for India event is a 6km course around the Swan River, with students from Year 7 to 12 taking part.

The College has been supporting Indian missions for the past 25 years and holds two annual fundraises to raise money for the programs.

Recently two floods swept through one of the school’s leaving them without water or power for weeks, with the college asking for additional donations to help with the renovations.

Principal Ivan Banks said all money raised went directly to people in India, with a goal of $20,000 to be raised this year.

“The fun run is a small way that our college can support the missions in India. Through the combined efforts of the student’s considerable funds, which are donated to a variety of orphanages and charities in India,” he said.

“I congratulate all students involved and thank them for their fundraising efforts, it truly reflects our ‘Men of Others’ ethos.”
