University of Gloucestershire takes part in the BRIT challenge
The University of Gloucestershire is taking part in the national BRIT (British Inspiration Trust) challenge, to improve young adult mental health and fitness throughout the UK.
BRIT is striving to unite the education, sport and charity sectors to ensure that every UK university, college, student union and student can take part in the BRIT 2021 Challenge – an inclusive feel-good fundraiser to improve mental health and fitness and raise money for charities providing vital support to students and young adults.
The BRIT 2021 Challenge is designed to be completed by individuals working as a team to cover the 2,021mile distance, between now and 1 July 2021, by either hand-cycling, cycling, wheelchair pushing, swimming, walking, jogging, running, rowing or paddling (canoeing, kayaking or paddle- boarding).

“The BRIT 2021 Challenge is enabling students and young adults to unite wherever they are (at home or on campus) and take part in a feel-good challenge to raise vital funds for charities who support young adult mental health, all while improving mental health and fitness. I am delighted to be joining the BRIT Ambassador family and look forward to encouraging and supporting students at the University of Gloucestershire as they take on the BRIT 2021 Challenge.”
