York Sport Fundraising

Helping the community


Free classes, raising money for charity!



We hope you’ve enjoyed the fitness classes our fantastic instructors have been hosting the last few weeks. Such is the community spirit at this time that some people have been asking if they can make a contribution for the classes they have enjoyed.

If anyone wishes to make a donation, we welcome any voluntary contributions (however big or small) in aid of York Foodbank and Mentally Fit York!

  • Ride to Roses

    The Tour de Living Room

    Our very own Keith is tackling his own challenge by (virtually) cycling the 104 miles to from York to Lancaster, riding for 5 hours and 15 minutes on what would have been the opening day of Roses 2020. He is cycling to raise money for Mentally Fit York and the York Foodbank.

    Virtual Roses

    To make up for this years cancelled Roses, The University of York Students’ Union will be hosting a Virtual Roses 2020! Taking on trains and challenges while fundraising for Age UK and Cancer Research UK.

    To kick it all off, York Sport Union President Maddi, is aiming to complete the Three Peaks in three days on her staircase…

    • Ben Nevis – 4,413 ft
    • Mt. Snowdon – 3,560 ft
    • Scafell PIke – 3,209 ft

    That’s a total of 799 trips up the stairs!
