My story

[p]In September this year, I will join the [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/]Strive Challange[/url], to highlight the importance of giving kids in London and other big cities in the UK a better start in life. I'm part of a relay of sailing, cycling, kayaking and hiking that takes us from Mt Etna to the summit of Mt Blanc. I will do the hiking leg across Corsica on the famous [url=http://corsica.forhikers.com/gr20]G20 route[/url]. [/p][p]Behind this project is youth charity [url=https://www.big-change.org/]Big Change[/url], with a motto "to ensure young people have a chance to succeed in life, not just in exams". Big Change operates as a social impact accelerator, that will find, incubate, and connect powerful ideas to the people and support that can make change a reality. [/p][p]Many of the ideas we back, would struggle to get off the ground because of their early stage and often unproved ideas, so we provide this "risky" capital. We only back ideas that have the capacity to have a big impact on our society and that will benefit large groups of young people.[/p][p]Below a few ideas we have backed to date:[/p][p][url=https://www.voice21.org/ ]Voice 21[/url][/p][p][url=https://bradford.50thingstodo.org/app/os#!/our-mission]50 things to do before you are 5[/url] (download the app)[/p][p][url=https://www.big-change.org/youth-advisory-board-february-2018/]Our youth advisory board[/url][/p][p]I'm very proud to be a member of the Big Change team and I hope that you can help me raise some money for this incredibly worthy cause. And wish me luck across Corsica.......[/p][p][br][/p]
