About the event

The CEO Bike Build event will help “CEO participants” (leaders from the community – corporate, public and private sectors) experience first-hand the benefits of TRACTION programs in the community.

How your support makes a difference

Funds raised help TRACTION reach more young people in need.

TRACTION applies a social and experiential learning process where mentors support young people to build their resilience, teamwork and leadership skills.

TRACTION helps young people by providing a safe, inclusive, action-based environment where vulnerable youth build self-esteem, find a sense of belonging, discover their potential and create their own future.

The process

As one part in a team of two, you will support a TRACTION graduate in assembling a bicycle within a 3-hour time frame. The TRACTION graduate will be your leader, guiding you through the process, and in doing so demonstrate their skills and knowledge.

You will help get the job done, and along the way share experiences, build rapport and give the TRACTION graduate the opportunity to interact, possibly for the first time with an industry leader. ​

The bikes built on the day will be donated to TRACTION for future participants to receive.

To Enter

To REGISTER, CEO participants &/or the organisations they represent are expected to raise $5,000 for TRACTION, through personal fundraising, a corporate donation, or a combination of both.
