We are Alex, Emma and baby Teie, and we’re taking part in IntoUniversity’s challenge event, 100 for 100k! Between us we’ve worked for IntoUniversity for almost 10 years, which shows how strongly we believe in the charity and the work that it does to support young people from less advantaged backgrounds.
If you want to find out more about how impactful that work is, take a look at IntoUniversity’s most recent Impact Report (which Alex put together!) here.
The young people and families IntoUniversity works with are likely to be among those hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis. Where safe, IntoUniversity plans to reopen centres in September, and students will urgently need help to support their learning recovery, after missing months of schooling due to lockdown.
Due to financial difficulties resulting from COVID-19, a funder has had to withdraw their funding, leaving IntoUniversity with a £100,000 gap for the next academic year. To fill this gap, IntoUniversity is running a challenge event, 100 for 100k, and we are taking part.
Alex's shoulder injury is worse than he'd initially hoped, so instead of push ups/pull ups he will now be running/walking 100km in the month of September, having never done any (non-sport-related) running before! Emma will be picking up 100 pieces of litter from the local area each week. Not wanting to be left out, Teie will be pulling himself up to standing 100 times and crawling 100 metres over the course of the month.
Any sponsorship you can offer to support IntoUniversity will be gratefully received. It will go towards keeping our centres open to support the young people and families we work with.
We’re really excited to get started and you can follow our progress on this page.
