Raise £4000 for Flying Start and complete a 10 day Race Across Europe challenge to support BA's incredible partnership with Comic Relief

**Additional £205.5 raised which is not reflected in the progress bar**

Hello and welcome to our fundraiser! We are the BA Engineering Graduates. For the first time in eight years, BA has taken on a new cohort of graduates in Engineering including 5 Technical Engineering grads and 5 Planning and Supply Chain grads. We are also lucky enough to have the addition of a Finance graduate, based in Engineering, who will be joining our challenge.


As part of our first year as graduates, we have decided to challenge ourselves to complete a 'Race Across Europe' event to raise money and awareness for Flying Start.The challenge will involve our cohort splitting into teams and racing across the continent, starting in Istanbul, racing via Vienna, to make it to the finish line in Madrid. This will all take place over the course of 10 days in September. *ALL MONEY RAISED IS GOING TO FLYING START!*

There are a number of rules which will be followed including: a meet up of all teams in Vienna on day 5, a strict budget which must be followed, challenges to be completed along the route, and no flying!

The winning team will be the team which manages to reach Madrid first, collect the most amount of points throughout the challenge by reaching checkpoints first, completing challenges, and visiting the most amount of countries. Moreover, there will be opportunity for those donating to pledge their support to one team and track their progress across Europe as the challenge begins. More details about this will follow in the coming weeks.


Our goal is to raise £2000 in aid of Flying Start. All money raised goes to Flying Start, and our challenge has the aim of raising awareness of BA's long-standing partnership with Comic Relief and our commitment to sustainability.

We'd like to thank you for your support, and hope you will donate to such a great cause.

Keep your eyes peeled for our future fundraising events, and live updates on how our teams are getting on.


Let the challenge begin!
