This event was supported by Edinburgh University Students’ Association, and the Sports Union at the University of Edinburgh as well as the university itself in order to reach the biggest audience.

Please aid this program and reach out to your friends or other students who might need help, check in on them and ask them how they are doing once in a while. Make sure your friends are okay! This will make the university community a much better, safer place for all of us. We hope you all are alright.
