The 2024 BRIT Challenge has launched at Edge Hill University. The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) supports young adult mental health and fitness in the UK through the delivery of the annual BRIT Challenge. And we have lots of activities to get involved with over the next few weeks.
Throughout February the Student Life team and Edge Hill Sport are raising awareness of BRIT Challenge with ResActive. Get active and improve your mental and physical health in the process. As part of both BRIT Challenge and Feel Good February, all of the Campus Sport programme will be free to engage with for the whole month of February. So where does ResActive come into this? Simply book and attend a Campus Sport session to be in with a chance of winning. The more you attend throughout the month, the more likely you are to win. Challenges include:
- Most attendances in a week
- Most attendances across the month
- Attendance across the programme
In addition to this all EHU residents can earn ResLife points for getting involved. This is in line with the ResLife points guidelines. The winning halls will also be awarded a free Halls Social. So spread the word. The more your Halls get involved, the more chances you have of winning.
What are you waiting for? View the full Campus Sport programme and start planning your month of activities.
BRIT Challenge Week

This week will focus on BRIT Challenge in its broadest sense. Not just focusing on being physically active, but looking at a range of activities to improve your wellbeing and raise awareness of the importance of BRIT Challenge.

Technogym MOVEs is a way of measuring physical activity that unites us all. It is based on actual body movements. Allowing you to measure and compare the level of activity during the campaign. The faster you move, the more moves you collect. To get involved, just down the Technogym app on your phone. It is all free of charge and you can join our Edge Hill community with access code ‘edgehill’. Once you have joined you can join the MOVEs challenge to compete and be entered into a prize draw.
