Join us as we take on the challenge to row 2020 miles in 5 days to support University Mental Health Day (UMHD) and raise funds for Sport Relief.
The Row Britannia Challenge for University Mental Health Day is taking place from Monday 2 March to Friday 6 March.
What is Row Britannia?
Row Britannia is an inclusive mental health, fitness and wellbeing challenge set up by The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) to increase positive awareness of mental health and raise vital funds to support people living incredibly tough lives, in the UK and around the world, via Sport Relief.
Who can take part?
All BU staff, students and partner organisations. We welcome teams and individuals from across the university. We want as many people as possible to be involved, have fun, improve their mental and physical fitness and raise funds for Sport Relief in the process.
When and where is this event taking place?
Our rowing challenge will span five days from Monday 2 March to Friday 6 March. Rowing stations will be available on both Talbot and Lansdowne Campuses.
What do I need to do?
Take time out from your work/study day, get away from your desk, challenge yourself and help us reach our target of 2020 miles in 5 days. Sign-up either as an individual or a team, turn up and row, log your distance, share your distance and action pics on our Facebook Group #BU_row2020.
Throughout our 5 day challenge we will be offering spot prizes and giveaways for individuals and teams. Plus staff members signed up for Green Rewards can also earn extra points for taking part.
Want to take part but rowing isn’t your thing?
We want as many people as possible to be involved but understand rowing isn’t for everyone. So, why not come along and cheer on a colleague or team – your support could make all the difference!
