As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (Monday 18th May – Friday 22nd May), the Cambridge University Sports Centre is running a Virtual Climbing Challenge. They are challenging individuals and teams to choose a target of climbing a building, set of buildings, or even a mountain – all virtually. Participants can climb the stairs in their house or the hill in their local park.
The Sports Service have also nominated a cause to donate to as part of the challenge, and that is the one being co-run by Professor Farooqi: the Cambridge COVID-19 PPE Appeal! To find out more, you can go to the campaign website (www.4cppe.com). You can donate to sponsor the GOOS team climbers here: https://www.philanthropy.cam.ac.uk/give-to-cambridge/virtual-climbing-challenge
The GOOS team have decided to climb Mont Blanc together. That is 30,420 steps over the next week. Wish us luck!
