Race2Paris is a hitchhike race where teams have to get from Bristo Square, Edinburgh to Paris in the quickest time possible. It allows you to raise money for any charity you choose (with a UK charity no.) whilst having the time of your life!

Learn more about it by visiting our Facebook event page here.

Edinburgh Students’ Charities Appeal is the oldest and largest student fundraising group in Edinburgh, made up of students from all of Edinburgh’s universities. We organise a range of student-led events from hitchhikes to marathons to pub quizzes, with the aim of raising as much money as possible for charity. Every academic year ESCA chooses a group of charity partners who receive the majority of our fundraising total for the year.

We always need enthusiastic volunteers and have lots of opportunities for people to get involved with event organisation. As well as supporting our charity partners we encourage the work of other fundraisers on campus. If there’s a cause close to your heart we offer grants for students to propose and run their own fundraising events – for more information have a look at our Support tab.
