$19,000 RAISED AND 101 PARTICIPANT SPONSORS SECURED

Last week’s annual celebration and awards night - the 'Pit Crew BBQ' - was a fantastic evening. Thank you to those that attended and gave so generously. So far we’ve secured 101 sponsorships for TRACTION participants, however we need another 139 to reach our target of providing 240 workshop places in 2018.

TRACTION relies on donations, grants and sponsorship to fund the program, so if you can support us it would be appreciated. Participant sponsorships are $100 and are fully tax-deductible.

THANKS A TRUCKLOAD 99 BIKES

For the second year running, staff of national bicycle retailer 99 Bikes have chosen to support TRACTION. 36 new bikes were delivered to TRACTION earlier this month. The truckload of BMX and mountain bikes will be used for training purposes in the workshops and be given to the community. The company also donated close to an additional $10,000 to help TRACTION.

ABOUT TRACTION

TRACTION empowers young people in need, helping them positively engage with their communities, discover their talents and create their own future. We understand that everybody learns differently and some young people do not realise their potential in a classroom.
 
TRACTION provides a safe environment where young people restore items donated by the community, and with the guidance of mentors learn new skills and put them into action through participation in real, tangible and meaningful learning activities.
