Distance to the Moon 10 May - 9 July

With Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) starting on Monday 10 May, we want to celebrate the opportunity to get outdoors, take in the fresh air and the benefits exercise has, both on physical and mental health. With so many people getting behind our Virtual Climbing Challenge last year, this year we are go bigger and further than ever, to the moon!

Join us as the University of Cambridge community seeks to achieve two clear targets, to clock up a combined distance, equivalent to travelling around the world, and then to travel to the moon.
