Rally4Shelterbox 2018

It’s that time of year again - FXU GeogSoc are preparing for Rally4ShelterBox! We are looking for keen volunteers to take part in this enormous charity event. For those hearing about this for the first time, Rally4ShelterBox is a non-stop 280-mile relay circuit around Cornwall in aid of ShelterBox, a local charity who provide disaster relief around the globe. The event is split into legs, which participants either run, jog, walk, row, kayak, cycle or swim. The event will run continuously from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th of June. If you want to get involved, please express your interest. Here are some ideas on how you can:

1. Are you interested in participating in a leg of the relay? There are a whole range of available legs including running, swimming and cycling, with the aim of every participant raising a minimum of £50 sponsorship (with potential incentives for those who raise over £100). Additionally, if you can think of an innovative man-powered leg, please let us know, as we have a one-mile long creative leg that needs filling.

2. If you answered yes to question 1, are you able to provide your own transport for yourself and any equipment (in the process of organising logistics).

3. There will be a huge Fun Run at midday on Sunday 10th June for the last leg of the relay from Gylly Beach to The Front on the high street, where we will celebrate the end of the relay. There will be a £5 entry fee for the Fun Run in which participants will receive a goody bag from our sponsors. The Fun Run will be fancy dress and the best dressed will get to carry to relay baton home. The organisation process is still in early stages but it would be great if you could express your interest in the event now and reply with the questions above answered. We are planning on making Rally4ShelterBox bigger and better this year, with a longer route and a fundraising target of £5,000! Also, look out for our pre-event fundraisers and launch party coming soon. If there is any other way you could offer your support, please let us know.
