These events were sponsored by Virgin and were in aid of the Big Change charity. They involved multi day hiking trips with groups of up to 60 hikers, followed by an Alpine Climb (Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn) by the core team of 10-15.
We provided detailed planning, preparation, logistic support and full operation of the Alpine stages of this event. Harnessing our experience in the Alps we operated different hike stages over the various years of Strive including successful summits of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.
Virgin Strive Challenge– 2014/2016/2018/2019
Fifty hikers from the missionary church group Operation Mobilization, crossed the high alpine range from Chamonix to Zermatt along the world famous Haute Route. The group, consisting mostly of women with little hiking experience trekked for 8 days, covering 200km and 12000m of elevation.
Support by our team and steely determination, all 50 hikers completed the challenge and were rewarded with life changing experiences. The Freedom Climb was in aid of enslaved women and raised a considerable amount for this cause whilst also spreading awareness.
