My story

[p]Hey Guys,[/p][p]As per usual, I’ve had a moment of spontaneity and decided to sign myself up to the first leg of the strive challenge. The strive challenge is a month long challenge, where as a group we make our way from Mt Etna in Sardinia (Italy) to the peak of Mont Blanc (France). While this sounds like an awesome road trip, there’s a catch - we can only make our way there using human power. This means we can run, swim, cycle kayak, climb, sail, hop, crawl etc, but not use anything that has an engine. Unfortunately, I can’t CrossFit myself there, So I will be cycling the length of Sardinia (400km) and kayaking to Corsica (20km), before passing on the Barton to my fellow strivers. If you’ve ever seen me on a bike, you’d probably be willing to sponsor me just for the opportunity to see it happen again, but I’m also raising money for a great cause. A lot of us take for granted how seamless our trajectory from school to university was and how most of it was mapped out for us from quite a young age. However, some people have no idea what they want to do or where they should be going, so either end up following the masses because that’s the done thing or go off on their own with no direction or guidance. I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to find themselves and where they belong and Big Change is an organisation that is trying to make that happen. I still don’t have a clue what I’m doing half the time, but I at least have a strong and close support network around me which gives me the confidence to try new things, make mistakes and grow as a person. I just want to give others the same opportunity. [/p]
