Race 2 Raise – Maya Youth in Performing Arts
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Palmera Projects used to host an awesome yearly event in the past called ‘Human Race’. It was an Amazing Race style event where teams solved clues and challenges while racing around Sydney.
We at Maya used this as our inspiration to come up with our own event ‘Race to Raise’. We teamed up with UTS Tamil Society to host the event.
MAYA have made a long term commitment to Palmera. We are working with the Thervipuram village to help families re-establish themselves after the civil war. We believe in the philosophy “giving a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”. So this is why we will be partnering with Palmera to achieve just that.
For the ‘Race to Raise’, teams of 4 are going to race around Sydney CBD collecting clues, solving puzzles and completing challenges to help rewrite the stories of one village.
This is the first year we have organised a ‘Race to Raise’. We are nervous and excited about how the day is going to go and we are working very hard to make sure it’s a success.
Date – Sunday, 5 February
Time – 9:30-4pm
Venue – Sydney CBD
Race to Raise will be the first event of many for 2017 to kick off our three year journey with Palmera. Maya has pledged $35k to Palmera’s Thevipuram project for 2017. We have partnered with Palmera because we believe they bring the transparency of a large organisation and the heart and community focus on a grassroots agency.
