Flamborough Paint Challenge
Wed, June 28, 2017, 3:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
The Flamborough Paint Challenge, on Wednesday, June 28th, is Flamborough's first youth-led event aimed at building relationships and skills while fighting youth poverty.
The epic 5 km obstacle course winds through Joe Sam's Park where teams are doused with an environmentally friendly, cornstarch based, powder paint. There is also a mini-games area, entertainment and barbecue included in the cost of registration.
A partnership between Healthy Community – Healthy Youth Flamborough, local schools, businesses, organizations, and service clubs, this event is the brainchild of local youth who wanted to make a difference in their community. The goal is to raise awareness of Developmental Assets, which are the 40 positive values, experiences and qualities that help young people make positive choices in life and avoid engaging in high-risk behaviours, while raising $40,000 towards a Start2Finish Reading & Running Club in Flamborough. Start2Finish is a national charity whose mission is to break the cycle of child poverty.
We are empowering youth to take leadership roles and work with partners and sponsors in every aspect from planning to competing in teams.
We hope you will join us.
