Alpine STRIVE Challenge








Striving for more with Big Change

Big Change wants to see a society where all parts of society work together to support all young people to thrive. They fund and support pioneering people and projects at the frontline of change, and unite a community of supporters to help them achieve the greatest impact.

The STRIVE Challenges are the charity’s way of engaging supporters and fundraising for projects. Threshold have been striving with Big Change for five years with 2019 being the most recent edition in the French/Swiss Alps.

What did Threshold recommend?

We wanted to once again deliver an unforgettable experience that was challenging enough to drive high levels of fundraising.

We designed a gruelling 5 day human powered journey with a few touches of luxury thrown in as reward for their efforts. The disciplines would be hiking, lake swimming, road cycling and a grand finale paraglide into Verbier.

Who took part and what were their highlights?

  •   35 change makers
  • A bespoke glamping site looking out over Mont Blanc
  • A bracing swim across Lake Passy
  • An adrenaline pumping paraglide finale

How did we do?

  • The total amount raised for Big Change was a huge £800k


“It was another amazing week, from almost every perspective. The participants had the time of their lives, seriously strong relationships were developed or strengthened and we managed to raise around £800k for Big Change.”

“Thank you for everything you do – the hard work does not go unnoticed and you guys play such a vital role in making the event what it is.”
