A RECORD team of 154 students and staff from The Armidale School will be using this year’s 14km City to Surf foot race to go one step further in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy (MD).

The Stand Tall for a Cure foundation has been established by TAS Old Boy Drew Schofield, from Nundle, who was diagnosed with MD when he was 12.

Mr Schofield is raising the profile of MD through his foundation, including funding stem cell research and equipment for those living with the condition.

This Sunday, TAS runners will hit the pavement from Hyde Park to Bondi, inspired by his message to “give it all you’ve got”.

“As an Old Boy, Drew’s story is a particularly powerful one for our students, and it is a privilege to be able to help in this way,” Athletics MIC Jim Pennington said.
