What is the Amazing Race?
The Community (Amazing) Race was a huge success this year, with 32 eager young people across 9 teams running in the Race. Teams raced against each other in a series of physical, creative, and educational puzzles and challenges. They improved their sexual health knowledge with FLYHT, made shelters out of cardboard with Anglicare, pizzas at Cucina105, created fun ads at the Western Sydney MRC, made stress balls with Headspace, and helped promote an important health message with SWS Wellbeing.
The Amazing Race Liverpool is a regular NSW Youth Week event run in partnership with Liverpool City Council and awesome local youth services. The Western Sydney MRC hopes to continue this great partnership and run the event yearly.
This year, the Mesopotamian Emperors took first place, followed closely behind by AGS and Era Band in second and third. The first three teams were awarded Westfield vouchers and all participants received vouchers for free popcorn and drinks at Events Cinemas.
