The aim of our page is to raise awareness and money for charities: the Children's Society, Mind and Smile Train. To spice things up a bit, we decided to take part in the global Jailbreak challenge, which consists of travelling as far as possible from your university without spending any money of yours.
In order to encourage donations and support, we have therefore set milestones and personal rewards for certain amounts of donation

ICU RAG Spring Jailbreak

You asked and we listened - we are running a spring jailbreak this term, just before good old Brexit so you can have the chance to hitchhike away through Europe to who knows where? Our Imperial College record is Bali, Indonesia – set in the Big Jailbreak of autumn 2016. Can you beat it?

The challenge is simple: You have 36 hours to get as far from Imperial College as possible, using any method of travel but not spending your own money. You'll raise money for RAG's charities of the year along the way! This year RAG is supporting the Children's Society, Mind, Cardinal Hume Centre and Smile Train. Your best experience at Imperial awaits.

The challenge will begin on Saturday the 9th of March, and ends the next day!

Io dono nella speranza che SAHRAF detto Er Malaria riesca finalmente a comprarsi un malarone, per guarire da ciò che lo affligge. Vediamo che succede, ma per l'amor di Dio evitate paesi dove possa contrarre altro
