At its core, Row Britannia is a team 2020mile rowing challenge by The British inspiration Trust (BRIT), to be completed between 12th November 2019 and 13th March 2020, to raise £3,000 for Sport Relief.
We have invited every university and college in the UK to register a team and have extended the invitation to the UK Fire & Rescue Service, Royal Navy and British Rowing.
If every UK university and college registers just one team and hits that target, they would collectively raise almost £1.5m for Sport Relief! In addition to raising vital funds, the positive awareness of mental health, fitness and wellbeing that they would raise within their communities could be extraordinary.
We hope that you will take on the Row Britannia
1) Promote mental fitness and raise awareness of mental health
2) Engender team spirit, inclusivity and reduce isolation
3) Raise funds for Sport Relief
Please raise whatever you can - it is a fantastic cause
We have partnered with Universities UK, the Association of Colleges, Colleges Scotland, Colleges Wales, the National Union of Students (NUS) and British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS).
Every Vice-Chancellor and College Principal has been invited to share Row Britannia with their students & staff and asked to row a mile! The NUS will encourage all university and college Inclusivity & Disability Representatives to champion Row Britannia. BUCS will encourage all university and college Heads of Sport to support students and staff.
Row Britannia is encouraging a whole university, college and community approach to mental health. The bigger the team, the more awareness, and funds, we will raise for Sport Relief.
We hope that every person who takes part in Row Britannia for Sport Relief will feel great about being part of something special.
