In an effort to promote fitness and instil awareness on the importance of exercise for a healthy lifestyle, the Resource Centre organizes a yearly marathon walk, during the month of May. This activity has been going on for a number of years.
The great majority of students, accompanied by the staff, walk from the Resource Centre through the countryside of Wardija, up to St. Martin’s Cave. This is almost a fifty-five minute walk. When all are gathered at the cave, mass is celebrated and the statue of the Virgin Mary is crowned with a special wreath for the occasion.
The walk is then resumed on the return trip to the Resource Centre.
The marathon walk is also considered as a fund raising activity and all the students are encouraged to collect donations from family and friends for their participation in the walk.
