Team story

[p]Team Virgin Galactic[/p][p]Team Virgin Galactic is made up of three Future Astronauts and four team members. Training has begun and we are all ready to give the 2015 Virgin London Marathon our best shot!!To travel to outer space is the stuff of childhood dreams. Virgin Galactic’s not-for-profit initiative Galactic Unite provides practical support to the young people who will help make those dreams a reality by pursuing an education focused on science and engineering. Driven by Virgin Galactic’s customers, partners and staff, Galactic Unite educates and inspires through partnership initiatives, community engagement and mentoring, as well as providing science based scholarships around the world. Better access to space to improve life on Earth has never been more urgent or relevant. With your help, Galactic Unite will ensure that future generations are equipped to apply the space perspective to Earth’s greatest challenges.[/p][p]We are raising funds for Luyanda Mazibuko, who was awarded the Virgin Galactic Mandela Day Scholarship earlier this year. Virgin Galactic announced this scholarship in celebration of Mandela Day in 2013, and it is made possible through a commitment made by Virgin Galactic staff to raise funding that will support a South African student in need for 3 years.[/p][p]Luyanda is an orphan and his adoptive parents struggle financially. He is 15 years old, well-spoken, polite and gracious. Luyanda joined St Stithians Boys’ College in January as a weekly boarder and is already doing well. He was thrilled to receive the scholarship and said: [i]“I feel very lucky to have been chosen for this amazing opportunity. I will invest my time and energy to make you proud. I’m going to give my all to excel at Mathematics and Science”[/i] [/p][p]We know that Luyanda is going to give it his all, and we are going to apply the same commitment to the marathon and our fundraising efforts![/p][p][br][/p]
