Strive Sam Branson OSE is pictured taking part in the Virgin Strive Challenge 2018 for the charity Big Change which aims to help disadvantaged young people in the UK. Sam and his fellow

Strivers have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the charity by taking on the extraordinary physical feat of travelling 2,000 km across Western Europe by human power alone – cycling, hiking, trekking and kayaking – to finally reach the summit of Mont Blanc in September. Sam said, ‘Obviously, the summit is the pinnacle point to the end of the journey but I think, for us, Strive is more about the experience of taking on a huge challenge alongside amazing people working towards a common goal. The only way to get through a challenge like this safely is to look out for each other.’ To support Sam and his teammates, visit Virgin Money Giving and search for Sam Branson, Strive Challenge 2018.
