Welcome to the Pit Crew!
The purpose of the event was to reflect on another wonderful year for participants and mentors of the program and to recognise TRACTION supporters who generously provide the donations, resources and encouragement, often from behind-the-scenes, that provides the fuel in the tank to keep the TRACTION program rolling.
TRACTION participants hosted their families and friends at the Capalaba workshop and helped showcase the program. TRACTION has empowered more than 350 12-15 year old participants to complete bicycle build and small engine projects since kicking off in July 2015.
It was the first time we’ve honoured participants with the presentation of TRACTION “School Excellence Awards” for students nominated by their schools for demonstrating any of the following:
Congratulations to the award winners, including:
Special thanks to Jan, Robyn and Richard from the LIONS Club of Capalaba who have been tremendous supporters of TRACTION this year, raising funds for TRACTION and donating critical supplies like tools, paint and sandpaper that help reduce operating costs for TRACTION. The Club also provided its BBQ trailer which was used to prepare gourmet burgers and hot dogs for attendees at the event.
Thank you also to school representatives, fierce advocates for TRACTION, for attending the event and sharing the outcomes they’re seeing being realised back at school by students participating in TRACTION.
