Liverpool Hope University is partnering with the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) to champion and promote the annual inclusive BRIT Challenge between the 23rd January and 23rd March 2023.

We are participating in the BRIT Challenge to help raise awareness of young adult, student and staff mental health, as well as to raise money for the British Inspiration Trust and Student Minds.

What is the BRIT Challenge?

The BRIT Challenge is a national event running From January 23rd to March 23rd, 2023. This year's theme is "23", and we want as many students and staff to get involved as possible. You can enter as an individual (although we recommend you form a team to make it easier - 6 members max). Teams are encouraged to set their own target distance or activity for the duration of the challenge, whether it be physical, creative, or wellbeing related. As long as it is linked to 23, that’s all that matters.

What does the challenge involve?

That's really up to you! Whether you want to test your physical ability, express your creativity, or give something back to the community - there are endless possibilities.

You could even do a combination of challenges e.g. - logging your daily steps to and around campus

Here are just a few examples of activities to help you decide on your own personal challenge.

  • Completing your chosen activity over 23 days.
  • Setting a 23,000 or 2,023 mile team distance challenge.
  • 23-Hour Challenge.
  • Taking 23 minutes a day out of the office to take part in an activity.
  • 23 acts of kindness in the community over 23 days.
  • Completing a piece of artwork in 23 hours with a theme of mind, movement and destigmatising mental health (then auctioning the works of art).
  • 23 minutes of mindfulness activity (including meditation, dance, movement, drawing and knitting) for 23 days.

How can I get involved?

1. Participants can register for the challenge (either as an individual of as part of a team) by completing the online registration form.

2. All donations, including the minimum £1 registration fee, can be paid through our Givestar fundraising page.
