Ben Smith Assembly

Ben visits on Anti-Bullying Week and inspires us again.

On the 20th of November, Ben Smith, an anti-bullying fundraiser, visited our school to talk to us in support of anti-bullying week. Ben Smith is an inspiring person who has achieved many different things and has overcome being bullied at school. Two years ago, Ben began the ‘401’ challenge to raise money for two anti-bullying charities. During the challenge, Ben ran 401 marathons in 401 days. On the day that he came in, we wore odd socks in support of anti-bullying week and to remind us that everyone is unique and special in their own way.

Ben also told us about his future plans for the next two years in advance. He will be running from San Fransisco all the way to New York in 38 days whilst running 80 miles per day!
