Here at Codex, we take our responsibilities to the community very seriously, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t able to have a lot of fun along the way.
When we heard about Depaul’s upcoming Raft Race aginst Homelessness, we leaped at the chance to become a major sponsor of the event because it’s a great oppurtunity to lend a helping hand while also having a great time.
The Raft Race against Homelessness
The Raft Race Race against Homelessness is a unique, excitement packed day full of enjoyable activities for all the family. The races are comprised of 4 teams battling it out on premade rafts to see who can become the overall victor.
Fun for All
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never rowed a boat before. You might never have even been in one. What matters is that you’re ready to put yourself out there and maybe get a little wet along the way. The competition is friendly, the people are too, and the team who wins the lot gets to take home the Winners’ Cup!
How to get involved
There isn’t any preperation required – just register, pay a team entry fee (which goes directly to supporting homeless people in need) and show up on the day. You don’t even need to bring a boat! Rafts will be provided, as well as oars and lifejackets, music, goodies and a whole lot of fun. It makes a great day out for companies and teams of mates.
As a charity, Depaul are constantly striving to serve homeless invividuals or families, at risk, caught in the spiral of homelessness and deprived of all control in their lives. They have done amazing work for many years and with events like this they’ll be able to keep it up for a long time to come.
Depaul’s Annual Raft Race Against Homelessness is now in its third year. This year it will take place on Saturday 17th September 2016 from 11:00am to 1:10pm in the Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2.
We’ll be there, and we hope to see you too!
