BRIT 2021 Challenge: Charlie Waller partnering with UK-wide student mental health fundraiser
January 29 2021
We are delighted to be part of the BRIT 2021 Challenge which invites university and college students to work as a team to cover 2,021 miles by either hand-cycling, cycling, wheelchair pushing, swimming, walking, jogging, running, rowing or paddling.
The fundraiser aims to promote mental health and fitness and raise money for charities at the same time. All funds raised will be shared equally between: Student Minds, Nightline, PAPYRUS, The British Inspiration Trust and the Charlie Waller Trust.
Many universities, colleges and student unions are finding creative ways to engage students and staff who are working remotely. This includes one student or staff member completing one mile each for their team and dividing the 2,021 miles between campuses, colleges or departments.
BRIT Challenge 2021 ambassadors include Olympic rower Sir Steve Redgrave, athlete Sally Gunnell MBE and record breaking yachtswoman Dee Caffari MBE.
Clare Stafford, CEO of the Charlie Waller Trust, said:
“The BRIT 2021 Challenge is a great feel-good fundraiser which helps spread awareness about the importance of young adult mental health. We’re very grateful that Charlie Waller has been chosen as a beneficiary of the Challenge and would like to extend our thanks to each and every individual who takes part.”
