About the challenge

Being active is not only great for your physical health but can also improve your mental wellbeing by raising your self-esteem and helping you to set goals or challenges and achieve them.

So as part of the University of Cambridge Mental Health Awareness Week, the Cambridge University Sports Service is inviting individuals, Teams, Clubs, Departments, and Colleges to join them in completing a Virtual Climbing Challenge. Funds raised will go towards the University's COVID-19 PPE Appeal Fund, which is helping to purchase and transport essential high-quality PPE for NHS workers, from China to Cambridge.

There are a range of different individual, family, and group challenges that you can take on from climbing the University Library Tower to scaling a mountain! You can do them in a day or across a week depending on the time you have available and your current fitness levels.

To find out how to participate visit: or support the challenge by making a donation to 4CPPE via the University of Cambridge Philanthropy page.
