Are you a student or professor interested in bringing the Dare Campaign to your campus?
There are lots of ways to do Dares on campus – and support the incredible change that’s happening at the grassroots in Africa.
Members of Team Ashbury College started a dare chain! Charlotte dared to run 5-10km a day. Carolyn and Megan did a dare a day from December 6 -22, 2011. Others dyed their hair red and beard pink.
In addition to their individual dares, on World AIDS Day, the Development and Activism class at Dalhousie took a polar dip into the frigid waters of Chocolate Lake in Halifax.
On World AIDS Day, Elaine pushed her limits and did a headstand in front of 400 of her students. A metaphor for her class on the Social Determinants of Heath, she challenged her students 'to turn their view of the world upside down'.
Dared by the students of his second year course on politics of development and underdevelopment, Prof. Adam Sneyd auctioned off his lecture! Students raised money for their favourite of four possible lecture options, and the winning topic was presented in the next class.
On WAD, McGill Global AIDS Coalition performed a flash mob for a class of 500 physics students who needed a ‘wake me up’. You can watch their dare here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U2HAgb1MPI.
