Stage One- The Hike

The Virgin STRIVE Challenge kicked off this week with a bang!

The Strivers started off the challenge with a 5 day hike; over 70 km, with 5,000m+ elevation from Zermatt, to Northern Italy. The Core Team, led by Holly, Sam and Richard Branson were joined by over 100 STRIVERs on the hike, to begin their epic adventure from the Matterhorn to Mount Etna. The team are aiming to raise £.1.5 million for Big Change a social impact accelerator supporting young people across the UK.
