Bournemouth university Boat club is holding its annual charity erg. At BUBC we believe the mental wellbeing of all of our athletes takes priority above all else which is why 50% of all donations will go to Mind charity.
Last year, BUBC broke the Concept 2 Record for keeping a single rowing machine going for 120 hours! This week we are back on the ground floor of SUBU erging once again from Monday 18th - Friday 22nd February, 24 hours a day. We are doing this in order to raise money for both our Boat Club and for Minds. Minds provide advice and support to empower students experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding on the issue. We choose to donate to Minds as one of our rowers a few years ago suffered from mental health problems and unfortuantely took her own life
Once again, this year BUBC has seen an enormous sign up in freshers, more than the club has ever seen before - we now consist of 75 members in total!
There is massive potential in both the men and women athletes and we are keen to make the most of the momentum we have created for the club this year! Such a large club requires a lot of equipment which doesn't come cheap with rowing. We keep our membership and costs as low as we can as being a student isn't cheap, we understand that it isn’t the cheapest of sports but we try as hard as we can to keep prices bearable for our athletes! Overall, this doesn't leave us much money for expansion which is critical during a popular year like this.
This fundraiser will massively help us on our journey to making the most of our athletes; making sure every single one of them can train to reach their full potential!
Any donation that you can make will be greatly appreciated by all of our athletes at BUBC and we can guarantee that everyone will be pushing hard through their time slots on this 120-hour row to earn every penny that is donated.
This year's target is to raise £3,000! If this target is reached then our president has agreed to shave his head, live on facebook. So please donate as much as you can!!
