University of Galway Students’ Union today launched their Raise and Give (RAG)
Week campaign. The events will all be taking place on the University of Galway
campus Sunday 11th – Friday 16th of February to raise funds for Galway Rape Crisis
Centre and Cancer Care West. Fundraising events over the week will include a
Firewalk, a head shave, a charity auction, a 5km fun run, a Taylor Swift Night and a 5-A-Side Tournament.
We’re delighted to be bringing the craic back to campus this February with our Raise and Give week events. These events are a great chance for our whole campus community to come together andStudents’ Union President Dean Kenny
have some fun whilst also raising much needed funds for our nominated charities. I’ll be sacrificing my hair at the Shave Off event and would encourage all our students and staff to get involved in the events over the week.
The Firewalk will involve students and staff braving an exhilarating walk across hot
coals in the spectacular setting of the Quadrangle on Monday 12 th of February. The
charity auction will see 20 spectacular items going under the hammer to raise as
much funds for charity as possible.
