Team story

[p]On 13/04/2020, The University of Bath Rugby Club are completing many thousands of metres (already over 1500KM) and exercise repetitions to raise money and awareness for the nurses and volunteers on the front line fighting corona virus. [/p][p]Why now? [/p][p]As of 04/04/2020, 3,605 people in the UK have died from Corona Virus with 38,138 cases having been confirmed. As a result, there have been fatalaties in the front line. But we are yet at the peak ferocity this virus has to offer. By running, cycling, pressing, rowing and squatting, UBRFC aims to raise awareness of the fantastic work the NHS staff are doing in risking their lives so that others may keep theirs. [/p][p]Why UBRFC? [/p][p]We are young athletes who believe that we can help save the lives of older generations and frontline medical staff whilst also advocating for people our age to stay at home. All forms of running and cycling will be the single dose of daily exercise for the Rugby Club Member (as government guidelines suggest) or will occur on stationary platforms (i.e. treadmills or watt bikes) indoors and in isolation. There is currently already over 1500 KM being covered and the aim will be posted once numbers and target distances are set.[/p][p]What can you do?[/p][p]First and foremost, stay at home! As students, we can understand the urge to go for a pint(s) or to meet friends. But health professionals are starting to lose lives and the lives of the elderly are in OUR hands. Secondly, share what we are doing and donate! All proceeds will be going to the NHS Charities Together via this Virgin Money Giving Page. For more information regarding the charity, please use the link on this page. Together, generations working with generations, we can minimalize the damage of COVID-19.[/p]
