March 2023 York Sport BRIT Challenge
York Sport BRIT Challenge
As part of our University Mental Health Day Celebrations on Thursday 9 March 2023, York Sport raised money and encouraged people to take part in 23 minutes of well-being activity of your choice throughout University Mental Health Day in aid of the BRIT Challenge.
BRIT supports young adult mental health and fitness in the UK and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, which puts world class athletes shoulder to shoulder with young people. Equipping them with a winning mindset and shaping their futures – it’s a teammate like no other.
We’re continuing to raise money for BRIT and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust with a target of £2,023 by continuing our efforts and putting our team and members to the test on Thursday 23 March 2023.
BRIT is also supported by leading experts in young adult mental health, chief executives of national charities, education and sport governing bodies and universities and colleges throughout the UK.
From the morning of Thursday 23 March 2023, we are challenging our team, members and the general public to collectively exercise the distance of 2,023km on our equipment at the York Sport Village or Centre throughout any form of exercise that you wish!
There will also be exercise equipment set up at the entrance of both facilities for the general public to contribute!
This will be tracked through the York Sport Wellness app and York Sport Social Media and added up throughout.
When you are participating in the challenge we encourage you to post your pictures on our socials below and members can also submit whether they have done run or walk, etc. to let each other know how you’re getting on!
For members, the challenge is available on York Sport Wellness app, so click on your app and get involved!
For public who aren’t members you can click on the York Sport Social Media links at the top of this page to post on our BRIT Challenge post on the day your exercise contribution.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!

York Sport Red Nose Day Fundraiser 2023
York Sport joined people across the nation to show that laughter has the power to change lives as part of Red Nose Day on Friday 17 March 2023.
Throughout the day we ran classes at the York Sport Village and encouraged staff, members and public to dress up and wear RED and donate!
Our donation link is still available and however much you can spare, your donation will make a powerful difference to people here in the UK and around the world.
Don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid option, if you can, so Comic Relief can claim an extra 25% from the government.
From all of us here at York Sport and thank you. You’re wonderful and inspirational.
