Pupils will virtually explore as many of Cavan's towns and hills as they possibly can by accumulating their steps (walking, jogging or running) within the 5k radius and skipping, jumping jacks or mountain climbs to accumulate the metres and reach the top of those hills.
All participating schools will be offered a FREE fun physical activity session in the new school year.
