The Challenge

This year the BRIT 2021 Challenge is calling on all UK universities to accumulate a total distance of 2021 miles and raise at least £2021 for student mental heath services.

You can help us by running, walking, cycling or swimming your way to help our overall total, and sign up on our Virgin Money Giving page to add your sponsorship to our MDX fund.

We need you!

We're looking to encourage as many students as possible to join in the challenge, raise money for this good cause, and even get a bit fitter along the way.

We all know that being physically active has enormous physical and mental health benefits. During the pandemic, many people have struggled to be as active as normal, and this has had an impact on their physical and mental wellbeing. This challenge is an opportunity for MDX students to join together for a good cause, and to be part of #TeamMDX.

By joining the BRIT 2021 challenge, you can contribute to our collective effort to help us complete the full challenge distance and raise some funds for a great cause.
