The Branson Family talk Big Change

I’m not sure either of us can believe we’re about to say this, but we have just over a week to go until the Virgin Strive Challenge kicks off. It seems only yesterday that Dad was announcing this year’s challenge and we were spreading the message far and wide to get people to sign up and join us!

Over the last few months, the Virgin Strive Challenge has been at the forefront of all we do. We have been committed to making this adventure even bigger and better than last time, and with good reason…

Together we aim to raise £1.5million for Big Change to invest into life-changing projects for young people. It’s something we’ve already had great success in and can’t wait to do more of. Watch the video below to hear about some of the projects we’re working with and why they’re so special to us.

We are faced with challenges throughout our lives, but at Big Change, we believe that it’s how you’re set up to deal with them that defines success. And it is this mindset that every Striver is committed to embodying. It’s certainly not always easy, but we are confident that while growth happens when you step out of your comfort zone, the extraordinary happens when you do it with others.

The challenge officially starts on the 1st September and with 26 core members hoping to complete the full journey, and 260 signed up to take part in different legs of the challenge, it is set to be extraordinary. Your support throughout continues to be invaluable – thank you to everyone who has shared training expertise, words of encouragement and donated. We really couldn’t do this without you.

Love Holly and Sam
