Craven College Manager Aims For Peak Performance
Student Services Manager, Catherine Jackson is leading by example as the whole college, based in Skipton and Leeds Bradford Airport takes part in the Brit 2021 Challenge.
The vision of the British Inspiration Trust’s 2021 Challenge is to improve the mental health and fitness of young adults and students throughout the UK and raise vital funds for its partner mental health charities. The aim is for the challenge to be an inclusive feel-good fundraiser to improve mental health and fitness, all whilst raising vital funds to support young adult mental health.
Catherine says ‘I aim to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks, 3 times in 3 days during the Spring Bank holiday. That will be 75 miles, 4,755 metres of ascent over 3 consecutive days. This will be a huge challenge but worth every step if it helps us to achieve our goal of £2021. Our aspiration as a college is for as many staff and students as possible to be encouraged to take part and unite in support of young adult mental health. The Challenge is designed to be completed by individuals working as a team to cover the 2,021-mile distance by either hand-cycling, cycling, wheelchair pushing, swimming, walking, jogging, running, rowing or paddling (canoeing, kayaking or paddle-boarding).’
The challenge finishes on 1 July 2021 and all funds raised will be shared equally between;· Nightline, PAPYRUS – Prevention of Young Suicide, Student Minds, The British Inspiration Trust, The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.
Lindsey Johnson, Principal added, ‘Mental health is always important, but it is even more crucial in current circumstances that we support our students through our actions and this is why Craven College supports the BRIT 2021 Challenge.’
