NUIG SU Charity Challenge

This year with our Charity Challenge NUI Galway Students' Union will be fundraising for 3 amazing charities who are: Galway Autism Partnership, Galway Rape Crisis Centre and Helplink Mental Health.

Each month students and staff will be taking part in 6 different Charity Challenges to raise funds for the charities starting in November and running through until April.

Challenge team members will set themselves a personal goal for each month based around the challenge theme.

So far our Challenge Team of 365 members have completed: November Kilometre Challenge, December Random Acts of Kindness Challenge, January New Year Challenge and our February Kilometre Challenge part 2!

Our March challenge is the Hair Raiser. Volunteers are going to get their hair dyed, shaved or cut at the end of March. The fate of their hair lies in your hands as you can vote for what option you want them to go with at: https://bit.ly/2OmWbrK
