Thank you to sportscotland for supporting BRIT & championing the annual BRIT Challenge in Scotland

We are delighted that sportscotland supported BRIT and championing the annual BRIT Challenge this year.


Stewart Harris, Chief Executive of sportscotland, and his team encouraged every Scottish university and college to enter teams in the annual BRIT Challenge in order to support and improve student and young adult mental health and fitness.


Over the past two years, almost 180 university and college teams have taken part in the annual BRIT Challenge and we are thrilled that sportscotland will continue to support our work and promote the annual BRIT Challenge in Scotland.


We are sincerely grateful to Kate McCheyne, Head of Communications at sportscotland, for all her support.

Prior to the launch of this year's annual BRIT Challenge, Stewart said;


"At sportscotland, our vision is for an active Scotland where everyone benefits from sport. We want to help the people of Scotland get the most from the sporting system.


We are delighted to support the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and this inspiring initiative for students and young adults. I am pleased that so many Scottish universities and colleges entered teams for BRIT’s 2020 Row Britannia Challenge and hope that they will all take part in the BRIT 2021 Challenge.


This is an inclusive and accessible event that has the potential to engage many young people throughout Scotland and improve their mental health and fitness. For maximum impact and success, I would encourage all our universities and colleges to champion this opportunity, enter teams and encourage student participation.”
