My story

[p]Throughout 2014 the Virgin Galactic London team have taken on the elements, pedaled up hills, ran half, full and ultra marathons and clambered through mud all to raise money for Galactic Unite. We are a sporty bunch and we LOVE raising money for this great cause![/p] [p]To summarise the efforts we have gone to here is a list:[/p] [ul] [li][b]Pilgrims Ultra Marathon:[/b] 30 miles of running by Rose[/li] [li][b]Marathon des Sables:[/b] 250km miles of running by Rose[/li] [li][b]Tour of Wessex:[/b] 116 Miles of cycling by Gemma[/li] [li][b]Ride London:[/b] 100 Miles of cycling by Gemma[/li] [li][b]Spartan Sprint Challenge:[/b] 5km of obstacles by Becky, Clare, Susan, Tom and Rose[/li] [li][b]Royal Parks Half Marathon:[/b] 13.2 miles of running by Clare and Gemma[/li] [li][b]White Rose Ultra:[/b] 60 miles of running by Rose[/li] [li][b]Cycle for Freedom:[/b] 100 miles of cycling by Gemma[/li][/ul] [p]This means that the team would have collectively travelled over 300 miles on foot and over 320 miles on a bicycle!! If that is not worthy of your money then what is?![/p] [p][b]What is Galactic Unite?[/b][/p] [p]Galactic Unite was established in 2010 in partnership with Virgin Galactic and Virgin Unite as the global vehicle for the Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut community to channel its collective energy and resources to achieve positive change in the world.[/p] [p]Since then, we’ve been moving full steam ahead and we’re already helping future rocket scientist’s reach for the stars! [/p] [p]The funding raised from this event will provide a three year scholarship for a disadvantaged South African student with academic excellence and achievement in science and mathematics.[/p] [p][b]Who are we?[/b][/p] [p]We are a community of like-minded ‘Future Astronauts’ (people who will be flying the world’s first commercial suborbital spaceflights on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo).[/p] [p]We are united by the belief that the world needs to increase opportunities for young people to learn and apply STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills and technologies to social and environmental challenges. [/p] [p][b]Our Vision[/b][/p] [p]We want to help inspire and skill up a generation of people who will power the emerging space industry, and use their skills and expertise to solve global challenges. We aim to do this by: [/p] [p]Using the energy around commercial space travel to inspire a whole new generation to get excited about STEM skills and entrepreneurialism;[/p] [p]Creating and delivering innovative educational content and award-based programs around STEM and space-related activities.[/p][ul] [/ul][ul] [/ul][lt]ul style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: -9.390625px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; list-style: none; color: #333333; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;"[gt] [/ul]

"I sighted Elvis at Planet Alexis." That's what the t-shirts stated at a party I had as a young teenager. I'd like for that to become my reality and not just a funny saying.
