British Athlete T54 wheelchair racer, Lizzie Williams was on hand to officially open North Heath Community Primary School’s new running track which was installed with the aim of improving the health and wellbeing of the pupils and staff.
Lizzie Williams cut the ribbon to the new track at which point the Year 6 House Captains and Cross-Country team embarked on a celebratory lap with Lizzie.
The track has been in use since installation finished in May, and Curriculum Leader, Sarah Head, said that the pupils have loved going out for a daily run around the 200m track aiming to do a mile every day.
Lizzie Williams has visited North Heath Community Primary School on many occasions and has shared her athletics journey with pupils. She is currently Number 1 in the British rankings; Lizzie is looking for sponsorship to help her continue on her journey to compete in major championships such as the European and World Championships, and the Commonwealth Games, before hopefully heading for the 2024 Paralympics in Paris.
