'Gess' How Far Ben Ran?
100 students - £100 each - lots of money for charity. This is the simple idea behind the student-led initiative which has been taking hold over the last month at the Universities of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent. ‘100 for 100,’ innovated by Dan Clyne and Rebecca Schapira, is a scheme which has encouraged 100 students affiliated with the Jsoc to undertake separate fundraising activities in hopes of raising £100 each. The last month has seen space-hopping around campus, semi-naked three-legged runs, a certain Mr Sobell chaining himself outside Jsoc House for 24 hours without food or drink, and much more. Personally, I undertook a 6 mile run. This distance being a personal challenge for me, it felt great when I reached the finish line, especially because it coincided with a Macdonalds.
The current total raised by everyone stands at just over £11,500. It is inspirational to see how such a small group of people can raise such a commendable amount in such a short space of time. The money raised will be split between 8 very worthwhile charities
