The Virgin Strive Challenge 2014
With the tag line: ‘The Journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step’, you know this is going to be one unforgettable adventure. Take some very well-known names; movers and shakers of both the business world and sports world; hair-raising adventurists and big changers and add an unforgettable challenge: travelling from the O2 in London to the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps, all under human power. And a goal of raising £750,000 for the Big Change charity which helps young people in the UK, you know that this going to be a winning combination and one that is too enticing to not get involved in.
Over a month these brave, intrepid adventurers took on this challenge with a determined spirit; whatever the terrain, conditions or bad jokes, they would push through to get to the end. The Matterhorn was conquered and friendships were forged and many, many balls were consumed! Not to forget that a huge amount of money was raised to support Big Change projects.
