My story

[p][url=http://big-change.org/]Big Change[/url] is a youth charity set up by Sam and Holly Branson in 2012. Big Change invests in young people to thrive in life, not just exams. Giving young people the [b]support[/b],[b] skills [/b]and[b] opportunities [/b]to believe in themselves and drive change in their own lives and the world around them.[/p][p]Entrepreneurs, thought leaders, disruptors, philanthropists, inspirational speakers, extraordinary young people and educational trailblazers come together every year to complete a physical challenge that can transform the way we support the next generation and raise much-needed funds for the Big Change charity.[/p][p]This is the [url=https://www.strivechallenge.org/]Strive Challenge[/url].[/p][p][b]The 2018 Strive Challenge[/b] will start from Cagliari in Sardinia and travel to the summit of Mont Blanc, in France, entirely under human and sail power. The Core Team will be joined by up to 200 stage participants as they cycle, kayak, hike and climb their way across Europe [b][i]and I am honoured to be joining the first stage of the journey in August. [/i][/b][/p][p]We will be cycling an average of 100km, with a 1000m of climbing, a day (for 4 days) and kayaking 10-15km a day (for 2 days).[/p][p]I am not an accomplished cyclist.[/p][p]I have NEVER been on a Sea Kayak, let alone circumnavigated a small country on one.[/p][p]I want to show that when you reach a high level of general strength and fitness, you can set your mind to anything.[/p][p]And I want to invest in the future of our country by helping change the lives of young people - breaking the cycle of hopelessness, unemployment, drug use & gang membership and creating individuals who are net contributors to society.[/p][p][b]So far, Big Change has raised £4m in funding and £20m in follow-up funding for over 18 different projects across the UK via...[/b][/p][p]Mentoring, coaching and tutoring some of the 3.7million children in the UK growing up in poverty[/p][p]Providing targeted mental health support to schools[/p][p]Supporting young people leaving education early to improve employability and life skills through high quality work experience[/p][p]Building skills and confidence amongst young people in areas of high crime through mentoring and peer-to-peer support[/p][p]Follow my journey as I train harder than ever to achieve peak fitness in preparation for the challenge. I will be updating my Instagram and Facebook profiles with news of my progress and of course, the challenge itself will be widely publicised. [b]If you would like to sponsor me just £10 towards my overall goal of £3,000, it would make a huge impact. I have covered all my own costs, so every penny I raise will go to the charity. Small changes x lots of people = BIG CHANGE.[/b][/p][p][i]‘If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere’’ [/i]– Frank A.
