Register your team for one of the three sports challenges
UCT Day features three main sports challenges in which teams, drawn from across the university, will compete against each other. Participation will levy a small fee which will go towards one of the four UCT student fundraising projects. Visit the UCT Day events page to register for one of the following UCT Day activities. Start times are available on the website:
Please note: there are a finite number of places available for each of the above activities so make sure to register your team this week, and extend a challenge(s) to other faculties and departments who you think you can take on.
Don’t forget to participate in the ‘I am UCT because…’ digital challenge that was launched on the UCT official social media channels. We want to hear your unique UCT story! Your story will be shared on the UCT Day website and on our social media platforms.
We look forward to seeing you at UCT Day on Friday, 6 October for a day of fun, reconnecting and fundraising in support of UCT students!
