Welcome to our fundraising page. We are two students with one very simple aim for this challenge: to get as far away from Oxford as possible, without spending any money, whilst raising as much for the RAG charities as possible. We will be hitchhiking, charming, and busking?! our way onto boats, trains and planes in our effort to beat the other teams and escape from Oxford! Rohan will use his excellent interpersonal skills and awkward humour along the way and Conor will contribute rusty French, rudimentary German, and a healthy dose of positivity. We have never attempted anything like this before and are excited to give it a crack.
     Ultimately we're doing this to raise money for the fantastic charities that RAG supports and Jailbreak is one of their biggest fundraisers. Education Partnerships Africa works with schools in Uganda and Kenya, providing material resources and extra-curricular activities to help young students. Aspire Oxford is a social enterprise that helps homeless and disadvantaged people in Oxford secure employment and housing. 100% of donations go to these charities and two others so please help them by donating! Thanks.

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.
