My story

[p]I have signed up for Stage 3 of [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/the-route/]The Strive Challenge[/url], cycling from Monaco to Tignes in the French Alps. This is way further and more challenging than I have ever cycled before. The last cycling I did was for a couple of sprint triathlons 10 years ago! So why am I doing this? [/p][p]As you may know I have always been passionate about education and I’m so excited to have recently discovered [url=https://www.big-change.org/]Big Change[/url]. It’s a charity that has education at its heart, it aligns with my own values (see their manifesto picture below) and makes an impact by supporting youth empowerment projects. They want to reimagine education and equip all young people with the skills, knowledge and values to thrive in life and play a positive role in the world. [/p][p]Throughout my own teaching career I have always come back to the same question: “What’s the most important thing for children and students to learn?” Well, I believe Big Change are on the right track with funding Growth Mindset Research and enabling young people to access social emotional skills. [/p][p]To make it worthwhile I would love to exceed my £3000 fundraising target! If you donate here every penny will go to supporting projects and I will be hugely grateful. I have already paid for my own place on the trip and for the flights. To make it actually happen I need a good deal of training and your support and encouragement! [/p][p]You can check out my progress on my [url=https://www.facebook.com/susan.kelly.7547031]Facebook Page[/url].[/p][p]Update:[/p][p]It's just a week to go now and I've been putting in the miles. Myself and Ruby White (my new bike) are ready for the mountains! Thank you to all those who have donated. I really appreciate it. Do check out my FB page for updates when I am up the mountains. [/p]
