ESS Bug Push for United Way

UPDATE: DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO NOVEMBER 20TH

What: UVic Engineering Students’ Society Bug Push for United Way Charity Event
When: 6am – 6pm, Sunday, November 20th.
Where: Ring Road (Tent set up in front of the Student Union Building)

Bug Push is the charity event that the UVic Engineering Students’ Society hosts in partnership with the UVic United Way campaign. Teams of UVic students, faculty, staff, and corporate teams from across Victoria test their stamina, have fun, and raise funds while manually pushing a hollowed-out 1972 VW Beetle around UVic’s 2.2-km Ring Road. Each team pushes for a half-hour shift, with the goal of keeping the bug rolling for 12 hours straight. This year we have given the “Bug” a fresh zebra-inspired paint job!

Lunch will be provided for participants.

Follow this link to register your team and help us keep the bug moving for 12 hours straight!

You will need 3-5 people to push the bug: at least two to push and one to drive. Minimum $20 donation per team, and teams are encouraged to fund-raise on their own. All proceeds go to United Way. A fundraising pledge form can be found here.
