Hope Valley College students and staff pledge to walk, run or cycle around the world in 80 days.
Since starting in mid-February, on average 501km have been travelled per day and they aim to complete the distance by Tuesday, May 4.
Over 570 students and teachers have been taking part and as of April 26, a total of 27,300km has been logged.
Having raised more than £2,000 already, the money raised will be split between refurbishment works on the school sports hall, and its annual heart screening programme for year 11 students.
The school partnered with the Cardiac Risk In The Young (CRY) in memory of 15-year-old student Charlie Craig, who suffered a fatal heart attack in 2017.
“There is a significant cost attached to heart screening so we raise money for it every year. It’s important that any defects are detected early so something can be done about them.”
