Birmingham Leadership Programme rise to the UpRising 100 Challenge!

February 23, 2017

Members of the UpRising Leadership Programme in Birmingham managed to raise over £340 by taking part in a hiking challenge in Colwall.

On Saturday 21st January, three teams braved the cold and went head to head in a hiking race to raise funds to go towards supporting our Alumni once they graduate.

One of the hikers, Brian said, "I believe we have to be the change that you wish to see in the world. I am proud that we went the extra mile and overcame the challenge, in order to push for social change through supporting our Uprisers!"

And Kiah said, “I feel delighted that I can make a difference through Uprising, so I am even happier to give something back to such a cause, being a part of organising the hike has given me countless rewards!”

This is an excellent example of UpRisers putting their leadership skills into practice to give back to UpRising and the wider community, we would like to thank and congratulate them.  

Many thanks to Afifah, Andreii, Alex, Brian, Charlene, Chantelle, Charlie, Joseph, Dale, Kiah and Romwell for all of their efforts as well as the countless people that donated.
