Two of Ireland's top Intervarsity Handball Clubs; NUIG and UL Handball Clubs, are joining forces to run a fundraiser all next week in aid of Jigsaw Galway & Jigsaw Limerick, a Mental Health service.
It is called “5 for Jigsaw” with 5 challenges over 5 days for a €5 donation.
Why not join us and take part in our virtual challenges! (Days 1-4 are open to ALL)
We will post the Top 5 results at the end of the day so we look forward to seeing everyone take part and your attempts at the challenges!
- Day 1 - NUIG to UL Steps Challenge - The aim of this event is to get out & about (within your 5K) and try and get in as much steps as possible! There is 119km (156,200 steps) between the NUI Galway and UL Sports arenas. Can you help us reach the goal by 9pm Monday evening? If you would like to take park, post your progress on your own social media with the #5forJigsaw Hashtag or you can send us your results privately!
- Day 2 - Homecourt Challenge - Download the Homecourt app on an IOS Device and follow the instructions in the tutorial video that will be posted on our social media pages on Tuesday morning!
- Day 3 - Killshot Challenge - Back to basic's for Challenge No.3. Find a bottle and put it up against a wall, take a few steps back and showing us your best handball skills, try and knock the bottle over ! Again, we would love to see your attempts on social media with the #5forJigsaw hashtag.
- Day 4 - Jigsaw4Jigsaw! - Yes, you have read that right! It's time to take down the dusty jigsaw's out of the cupboard. You have trained for this since you were a toddler ! Keep it simple, it doesn't have to be any complicated 1000 piece 'Cliff's of Moher' jigsaw, the funnier the better!! The objective here is to put those phones down, to take some time out of your day to concentrate and turn what can look to be a complete mess in the beginning, piece by piece, into an achievement. Ask your family/housemates for help, together you can solve the puzzle. Take a snap of your achievement with the #5forJigsaw Hashtag !!
- Day 5 - Intervarsity Quiz! - The final challenge is for our past and current ICHA Members, The ICHA table quiz is an event we look forward to every ear, to laugh, socialise and challenge ourselves with our fellow collegiate handball members from all over Ireland after a weekend of battling on the courts. Sadly we havn't had an Intervarsity since Feburary 2020, therefore to keep spirits high we've decided to host a Zoom quiz in aid of JIGSAW Galway and Limerick for the ICHA members and remind you all that we are still here and looking forward to future battles on the court. The quiz will take place on Zoom for past and current ICHA members at 7:30pm on the 19th/Day 5 of the challenge. All you have to do, is let us know!
Message us on instagram or Facebook (links below) or contact any of the organising committee before 5pm on Friday 19th!
Go n-éirí libh, stay safe and don't forget to donate!
