Palace join London clubs in Vitality Westminster Mile

Palace will join other professional London football clubs and have a group of primary school pupils representing us at this year’s Vitality Westminster Mile on Sunday 26 May.

All clubs will bring along pupils who have previously taken part in Super Movers activity to participate in the run, with each participant wearing the colours of their team for the event. Palace will be represented by children from Tweeddale, Raglan and St Mark’s Primary Schools.

As well as their participation in the Vitality Westminster Mile, pupils will be encouraged to join in with the Super Movers activity that will be taking place at the Vitality Wellness Festival on in Green Park. This includes main stage activity hosted by Super Movers ambassador Radzi Chinyanganya which will also feature the Premier League trophy.

As part of the activity, all of the children will be performing the Super Movers ‘Eagle Swoop’, a song and dance originally performed by Palace players Christian Benteke and Patrick van Aanholt, Palace Ladies’ Ciara Watling and Jordan Butler and pupils from Oasis Academy Ryelands in South Norwood.
