When people ask us Gish? What is that?” we usually don’t have a short answer to give. The very short way of explaining it would be something along the lines of “doing crazy stuff for charity and for fun, while gaining points for your team”. But for those who have participated for several years, it’s become much, much more than that.

Below we've collected a bunch of pages and blog posts to help explain what exactly it is we're doing every year in August, how Gishers work with charities and how we finally won the whole thing in 2018.
