    Funded on Friday, 15th April 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    This year the BUCS Mascot race will be raising money in aid of the Danny Porter foundation for a third year. Dan Porter MBE was an inspirational individual, who championed sport at Sheffield Hallam University, and across the Country and was a strong advocate for BUCS Nationals.

    For two decades, Dan was the driving force for the development of sport and physical activity at Sheffield Hallam University. He was inspirational to all at Hallam and The University of Sheffield with everything he did, especially to rugby union who have held numerous charity events for the foundation over the past few years. Sadly, he passed away after a strong battle with numerous cancers. After his first diagnosis, Dan set up the Danny Porter Foundation to raise money for good causes. In 2016, he was honoured with an MBE for services to Education and Fundraising.

    The Foundation provides donations and grants to other charities providing research, support, care and equipment to people suffering from cancer and/or requiring neurological surgery. It also exists to share Danny’s experience to help others through their own experience with cancer. The Foundation helps patients whose friends and family are struggling to provide the support they would like due to their personal circumstances.

    The Mascot Race will take part on Saturday 19 February 2022 as part of the Indoor Athletics event at BUCS Nationals. The suggested donation is £30.00 per entry for Mascot teams and any other donations welcome from supporters, athletes and spectators. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR TEAM NAME FOR THE MASCOT RACE IN YOUR DONATION TO CONFIRM YOUR ENTRY
