My story

[p]What could go wrong with taking on the great climbs of the Alps as someone in their 52nd year following a bunch of (mostly)young entrepreneurs and fund raisers up the various peaks of Bonnette, Col de Vars, Col d’Izoard,Galibier and de Isersan. For someone who has never really had the marathon gene this looks suitably tough and is making me extremely nervous. Luckily its for a great charity to help shape the future of a younger generation so hopefully something we all feel is important .Big Change [url=http://www.big-change.org]www.big-change.org[/url] helps across a number of fronts with education,communities or issues such as mental health so its a great cause.[/p][p]I’ve paid £7,500 to kick things off so any contributions would be fantastic, I do fully understand that charity demands come through thick and fast from many deserving charities but this is a challenge and as per the name The Virgin Strive challenge I will be striving to get to all these peaks next week !I am doing stage 3 which gets 9/10 for difficulty so this is definitely not a jolly![/p][p]Please visit the website to see the challenge [url=http://www.strivechallenge.org]www.strivechallenge.org[/url] and www.big-change.org to read about the charity .[/p]
