WorkVentures’ 2010 Amazing Race is off to a flying start after receiving a $10,000 donation from the NSW Government on Monday 31 May.
The Hon Graham West MP, Member for Campbelltown, and NSW Minister for Juvenile Justice, presented the cheque to WorkVentures’ CEO Arsenio Alegre, commenting, “This is a positive, fun activity for our local Campbelltown youth, and timed perfectly for school holidays.
“I was pleased to present prizes to the 2009 winners, and was so impressed I wanted to make sure the event was even more popular this year, so more people could participate.”
WorkVentures’ Amazing Race is a free annual event for youth from the Campbelltown/Macarthur area to race around Sydney city. This year will be the fourth year it’s been run.
It’s a team-based event, with participants entering the race in teams of four. This year’s race will be on 30 September, starting at 8.30am at Koshigaya Park, Campbelltown.
All teams are given a map with five allocated checkpoints in the city. They must photograph the entire team in one photo at each checkpoint, and then travel back to the starting point at Koshigaya Park.
Prizes are given to the winning team along with second and third places. There will also be prizes for funniest photo, best effort and many more.
Entry is free and includes free rail travel, thanks to City Rail, breakfast, lunch and all event activities.
