Community | Caerleon School Step Up For MND

Pupils at Caerleon Comprehensive School donned the black and amber of Newport County today in support of former player Jason Bowen’s Motor Neurone Disease treatment and awareness campaign.

All students across Years 7 to 9 took part in ‘Step Up to D’Feet’ MND Challenge in school, with Years 10 to 13 also supporting a challenge for pupils of all abilities.

The challenge was for students to ‘step up’ as a team across the week to achieve as many step ups as possible in seven minutes, with the number seven representing the shirt number worn by Jason during his time at Newport County.

Over the course of the week, they aimed to raise the understanding among students and colleagues of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and how fundraising efforts can aid in the ongoing treatment required.

Newport County is incredibly proud of Caerleon Comprehensive School’s great efforts in raising awareness around MND.
