Could you do 50 things for the first time in five days? To celebrate the Virgin Social Marathon (more on that soon) Alex Ferguson is taking on an incredible #FirstTimes Charity Challenge.
Alex is aiming to do 50 First Times in five Days for Virgin Unite – Virgin’s not-for-profit foundation.
His challenge will start on Saturday, November 12th, building up to the Virgin Social Marathon on November 16th. It will include “physical challenges, mental tests, painful things, scary things, funny things and disgusting things”. Nice!
Alex wrote on Virgin Balloon Flights’ blog: “When was the last time you did something for the first time? It was probably just this morning. Was it cool, fun, interesting, surprising, scary, disgusting or totally unforgettable?
“Life is made up of first times and the first time is often the best. Life also tends to be more fun if you’re open to trying new things, even if they take you out of your usual comfort zone. I’ve recently become a dad for the first time – so this has opened up a whole new world of first times!”
