STRIVE Morocco 2017

2 November 2017: posted by BigChange

October also saw the completion of another Strive Challenge Event. This time in an entirely new format, bringing together 25 business and thought leaders from around the world to raise money for Big Change, Strive together and think about how we can collectively move the needle for future generations.

The event started with 2 days of mountain biking through the desert and Atlas Mountains, followed by 2 days climbing Mt Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. With stunning consistency, what was intended to be significantly gentler than previous events, ended up being far tougher than anticipated. It was a true Strive, with the final summit day declared in the top 3 hardest days of striving ever completed. Participants left having accomplished something they didn’t think they were capable of, with new friends for life and a renewed vigour for driving change, hopefully using Big Change as a conduit for doing so. The week has only served to strengthen our belief that growth happens when you step outside of your comfort zone but magic happens when you do it with others.
