University Mental Health Day: BRIT Challenge update
2nd March 2022
University Mental Health Day brings together the university community in aid of making mental health a university-wide priority and creating ongoing year-round change to the future of mental health.
Here at Hull Sport we aim to inspire conversations, take action and create change. Now more than ever its important to get the University of Hull talking and support the cause. We all have mental health, we all have stories to share and we all have the power to shape the future of student mental health.
To celebrate University Mental Health Day, Hull Sport have taken part in the BRIT challenge to complete 2,022 miles from the 1st February – 3rd March. We have exceeded the target and have achieved 2460.56 miles! This would not have been possible without the amazing efforts from the universities swimming, squash and lacrosse clubs along with the Hull Sport team. Donations from the event will support Hull Breast Friends and BRIT charity with the link still live and any donations are welcome: https://bit.ly/3qdzI0J
