My story

[p]The STRIVE philosophy is: [b][i]“Growth happens when you step out of your comfort zone, magic happens when you do it with others.” [/i][/b][/p][p]Having Strived twice before, I can confirm that the challenges push you way out of your comfort zone.[/p][p]This year will push me much further beyond – the route is tougher than anything I’ve attempted before, and I didn’t know I’d be able to Strive this year, so will be heading off with the fitness gained in just two weeks of last-minute training, having been off my bike all summer![/p][p]Over five days, I’ll be cycling 300 miles from Monaco to Tignes, taking in many of the iconic Southern Alps climbs that have featured in the Tour de France over the years.[/p][p]Along with the other Strivers, I’ll be raising money to support Big Change in its mission to support the next generation to thrive in life, not just exams. [/p][p]Big Change funds early stage ideas that address unacceptable issues facing young people. From projects to break the cycle that lead to pupils being excluded from schools to initiatives to support teachers, and much more, Big Change seeks out innovative programs that are empowering change and gives them the funding and support to scale and make a difference.[/p]
