GETTING INVOLVED WITH DUCK
TAKE PART IN A DUCK EVENT
Taking part in DUCK events is easy to do and a great experience!
The DUCK teams are in place to offer a large, completely diverse set of events for Durham students and staff. Over the course of the year we try to engage with as many people as possible to raise large sums of money for fantastic charities. This year we have the Events, Challenges, Endurance and Ragraid teams who will run events throughout the year to test, thrill and excite! In doing so we are supporting wonderful charities throughout the UK and beyond and we’re very excited for the year ahead. Be it growing moustaches for Movember, taking on the Tough Guy challenge, partying in your back to school attire, running the London or Paris Marathon, or canoeing across Scotland, we believe there’s something for everyone.
Please follow the relevant tabs (above) to find out more about this year’s individual events.
Volunteer abroad on one of our expeditions where you get the chance to experience a new culture.
