VIDEO: DCU students to race to Berlin with no cash

Daring DCU students are to race to Berlin as part of the Beg, Borrow, Steal challenge next month.

Robyn Kehoe Roche and Rachel Hattaway - of Team Rocket - will be among over 100 duos trying to get to the German capital in the quickest time possible over 24 hours on November 18.

Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? The only catch is that they’re not allowed to use any sort of cash or monetary means to get there. 

It’s all in the name of a good cause, of course, with Rachel and Robyn raising money for the Irish Cancer Society.

They’ll have to solve a series of riddles in order to move forward so there is no way they can pre-plan transport.

"While we know we’ll probably be very tired over the 24 hours, sleep deprived and lost in Europe, we know we’re raising awareness for such an amazing cause and everything we can do to help is worth it," Said Robyn.
 
"We are looking to raise as much money as possible."

The even is run by the DCU Enterprise Society.
