This September Darren Smith, CTO at Elonex, will be taking on the Virgin Alpine Strive Challenge to help raise over £750,000 for Big Change, an amazing charity reimagining education so that all young people in the UK are set up to thrive in life, and I really need your support please.
The challenge requires Darren, as part of a team of 30 individuals, to journey from Lake Passy in France to the summit of Mont Fort in Switzerland, entirely under human power.
So that means our CTO will be swimming, cycling, hiking and climbing his way through the Alps from 8th-15th September and bidding to conquer Mont Fort, which stands at an incredible 11,000ft!
Darren’s fundraising commitment, along with the £10k he’s paid to take part, is to raise £25k for Big Change.
Big Change funds pioneering projects that create positive change for young people in the UK, and allows them tothrive in a world of constant change.
And the charity in extremely close to Darren’s heart. Darren says:
