I knew I wanted to be a challenge leader after undertaking one of RAG’s fantastic challenges in my first year. I discovered a love for fundraising and RAG captured my heart, it’s such a wonderful society and I knew I wanted to become a bigger part of it going forward. I applied and was lucky enough to land the job of skydive challenge leader raising money for Unseen UK!
Another reason for wanting to be a challenge leader was that I was returning from a year abroad and knew it would be a great way of meeting a new bunch of people! And I was right!
There are so many ways to get involved in RAG and being a challenge leader is a fantastic opportunity! Knowing that I played a part in helping to raise RAG’s grand total of £90K this year really is the icing on the cake.
I would recommend being a RAG challenge leader to pretty much anyone, but perhaps more specifically: to anyone looking to gain skills in leadership, teamwork, and fundraising; to anyone who wants to make a difference to the world by helping to raise money for a bunch of amazing charities; or to anyone simply looking to make new friends and is willing to put in some work to do so!
