Oxford Raise and Give Jailbreak 2019 is a massive fundraising initiatives at Oxford. In short, the 3 of us have 36 hours to get as far away from Oxford without spending any money. In the past, students have made it to Tokyo, the Western Sahara, and New Delhi. Another team wrote to Richard Branson’s personal email, to which he replied, “Is Sydney, Australia far enough?” If you know anyone with access to any form of transport near the U.K. we'd love to know!

But most importantly, your donation here (none of which is used for our travel shenanigans) contributes effectively towards four charities selected by Oxford RAG. The Porch and Aspire both provide incredible relief & resources for the homeless community here at Oxford; IntoUniversity, a UK-based charity, fights for equality by supporting children from disadvantaged backgrounds; and Education Partnerships Africa provides assistance to students in Kenya and Uganda. Each charity listed has fought hard to earn their place on Oxford RAG's charity list, enduring rigorous nominations, shortlisting, and campaign processes in order to be selected. Rest assured, the money you donate will truly go towards bettering peoples lives.

Jailbreak 2019

36 hours. No money. How far could you get?

THE CHALLENGE: You’ve got 36 hours to escape from Oxford, and get as far away as possible without spending a penny of your own money. How far could you get?

On the 9th March our brave Jailbreakers are going to find out in Oxford’s biggest race against the clock yet.

Relying on their wit and charm to talk their way onto planes, trains, and buses our teams will compete against each other for victory, completing a series of challenges along the way. Last year competitors made it to Singapore, Barcelona and Tokyo - how far will Jailbreak 2019 go?

 All of the sponsorship that our participants raise will go to Oxford SU RAG's 2018/19 charities; Aspire Oxford, The Porch, Education Partnerships Africa and IntoUniversity, all of which do amazing work changing lives in Oxfordshire and further afield.
