Although this year is different in many ways, we are of course still focused on raising awareness and funds towards the mental health charity Movember.
This year we have set our UEA target to raise £20,000, having raised just over £12,000 in 2019.
Ways to get involved?
1) Get fundraising
Sign up to the Movember page – this is where you can physically raise money for the cause
As an individual
Visit this link https://uk.movember.com/register?prod_intent=grow&mocamp=G to set up your own profile on the Movember page and start raising money for the cause. You can do this in a number of ways – more details on the website above.
As a team
Once you have created an individual account you can join a team (see the left hand button in your ‘mo space’) so you can work together to raise money for Movember, for example as a club or society – this is a great way to see how much your specific team has raised for the cause.
Once you have set up a team you can then join the overall UEA challenge and see how much we are raising as a University. It also is there to create a little bit of friendly rivalry between teams (Men’s Rugby led the way last year). To join the UEA challenge click the arrow on the top tab of your mo space and then click on challenges – then search University of East Anglia and click to join this challenge. This is really important as it enables us to boost how much we raise as a University if everyone joins the challenge and hopefully achieve the £20,000 target.
2) Get donating
For the 1st of November we are putting Movember charity donation options on the UEA+Moves App. There will be both £1 and £10 donation options for you to use. This means you can build up points for how much physical activity your record via the app (steps, miles ran, miles cycled and distance swam) and then use these points to buy a donation under the rewards section of the app. To find out more about how to download and use UEA+Moves please click this link here
3) Get nominating – 4km ,£4, 4 friends
In line with the successful summer campaign, run 5km, donate £5 and nominate 5 friends we would also like everyone to join in our campaign along a similar theme. Out of all suicides in the UK 3 out of 4 are Men. We would therefore like you to either run, cycle or walk 4km, donate £4 and nominate 4 friends. Even better, track the activity on the UEA+Moves app and build up your points so you can also donate the points to the Movember charity on the app.
4) Get active – 1, £1,1
To help you showcase all your fantastic clubs and societies we want you to showcase all the wonderful activities that you do. Therefore, we want you all to get creative and get your club or society members to film themselves doing 1 minute of your activity and then post it on their social media account (tagging in the UEA Movember accounts – details below)– the more creative the better. The individual should then donate £1 to Movember and also pass the nomination on to 1 other student, hence the 1,£1,1.
5) Get promoting
Please use the below hash tags in all the posts you and your members put out please and also tag the UEA Movember accounts (details below).
For more information on the charity, please website their website.
