The money raised by Aldersbrook Primary School will go towards eradicating deaths by preventable causes in under-fives.
Aldersbrook Primary School hopes to raise over £400.
Head teacher, Miz Mann, said: “We’re all really excited about the event coming up. As well as giving the children an exciting sports event in which they can take part in, it’s a great way of getting the school to work together for a common fundraising goal.”
Pupils will use an interactive leader board to track their progress in comparison to other schools in the UK and across the world.
