One of Exeter’s Jailbreak teams reached New York, setting a new record

Others reached as far as Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria

Just 31 hours after teams broke out of the Forum, team ‘See EU Later’ touched down at JFK International Airport, breaking the all-time record at Exeter.

#travel #like4like #vsco

Using none of their own money (even close friends and family couldn’t help them travel), Exeter’s Jailbreak teams travelled a distance equivalent to the circumference of the world – twice.

Exeter RAG’s Jailbreak is now well on the way to smashing last year’s fundraising total, supporting Cancer Research UK, Balloons Devon and Exeter Student Volunteers.

Event manager Hope Hughes spent more than 36 hours awake with RAG volunteers tracking the teams. She couldn’t give a quote because she’s asleep but she’s probably proud.

So, who got the furthest?
