Gail Harrison – sister of long-standing Falcon staff member, Richard Harrison – and 13 friends are heading to Victoria Falls on 3rd July to run the marathon or half-marathon and are looking for sponsors!
All funds raised will go to the Falcon College Overseas Trust. In her own words, Gail says…

Having known some who have already benefited from this scheme, we feel it would be good to facilitate others to follow in their footsteps.
