My story

[p]I'm massively excited to be taking part in the first stage of the month long 2018 Virgn [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/]STRIVE[/url] challenge.[/p][p]I'll be cycling 100K per day (for 4 days) through a very hilly Sardinia followed by 2 days of kayaking. [/p][p]All the money I raise is going to [url=https://www.big-change.org/]Big Change [/url]charity which invests in initiatives to help young people in the UK thrive in life, not just exams. As someone who didn't do very well at school - I'm extremely fortunate to have found a passion in my life and meet some amazing people that inspire and help me on my journey. [/p][p]The 2018 Virgin STRIVE Challenge aims to raise £1 million to support up to 10 new projects that are creating big change in how we set young people win at life. [/p][p][b]Where does the money go? [/b]ALL of the money raised from STRIVE is used to support early-stage ideas that address unacceptable issues facing young people. [/p][p][b]What impact does it have?[/b] Past projects supported by STRIVE (like Frontline, Voice 21 and NCS) have gone on to receive millions in government and other funding - scaling nationally, influencing policy and changing the way things are done. [/p][p][b]Why focus on empowering change?[/b] We believe prevention is better than treating symptoms - it’s easier to build stronger children than it is to fix broken adults.[/p][p][b]Why early-stage projects?[/b] Unless we support innovation, change will not happen. There is very little funding for early-stage ideas with big ambition for long term system change, especially before they have proved their impact. [/p][p]If you would like to learn more about the [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/]Virgin STRIVE[/url] challenge and [url=https://www.big-change.org/]BIG CHANGE[/url] you can click the links or drop me an email :) [/p][p]Big change is a very worthy cause and I'm so proud to be a part of it.[/p][p]Thank you so much for your support,[/p][p]Jill x[/p]
