WE ARE YOUNG (WAY) IS HOSTING A NEW EVENT THIS SUMMER THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!! JOIN US ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 24TH, 2019 AND COMPETE IN THE ULTIMATE URBAN ADVENTURE RACE!

WAY is excited to be holding its first Race to Bridge the Gap event and is searching for teams of two to register, fundraise, and compete against other teams in a race to bridge the generational gap.

The race will have teams completing a series of challenges located throughout our city.  Here’s how it works… when you start, your team of two will get a map. There you will find challenges located throughout downtown Halifax and Dartmouth. You and your partner need to strategize your route and then navigate your way through ten of these challenges before you can race back to the finish line to claim your victory.  WAY’s goal is to create a one of a kind experience for our Haligonians. Something that will challenge both your body and mind and something that will take you outside of your comfort zone. Teams will be faced with both physical and mental challenges and you will be racing by foot, or by other forms of public transportation, from one challenge to another.This race will give you the opportunity to meet elders in our community while working with them throughout the day to support WAY’s initiative to grant wishes to a generation who are often times forgotten. So if you are looking to try something new and exciting, join our race today. It’s sure to be the highlight of the summer!
