LONDON, ENGLAND – APRIL 30

Princess Beatrice of York is set to join a large number of celebrities and influential people as they attempt the STRIVE Challenge in August.

The STRIVE Challenge by Virgin Group founder Richard Branson’s son, Sam. In it, participants will try to get from London to the summit of the Matterhorn in the Alps using only human power.

Organised as a fundraiser for Big Change, a charitable trust that is involved with youth charity projects that make a difference to the lives of young people throughout the UK. The charity was founded by six friends, including Sam Branson, his sister Holly and Princess Beatrice.

The STRIVE Challenge was officially launched on Wednesday at The O2 in London. The launch saw many members of the team climb to the top of the building, before posing for photos. In attendance were the Princess, Holly Branson, and Sam’s wife Isabella.

The Challenge, which will take place from August 7th to September 6th 2014, will see a core team of people travel from The O2 in London to the summit of the Matterhorn in Switzerland, entirely under human power. They will run from London to Dover in three back-to-back marathons, row the English Channel, cycle 900+km to Verbier in Switzerland, hike seven days across the Alps (The Haute Route) to Zermatt and finish by climbing the Matterhorn.
