Introducing Circulate! An event by the Markham Mayor’s Youth Council which features a lot of fun and joy packed into a Saturday evening. If you spend your Saturdays alone, don’t worry! Circulate is a fun event where you can have fun with your friends by playing amazing games, casual competitions, and of course having some amazing snacks! Join us on February 25th from 6:30pm to 10pm at Centennial Community Center for a night of fun. All donations to the event will be going towards the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The Amazing Race will begin at the Markham Civic Centre.
What is the Event?
Markham’s Amazing Race is a full day event that brings together hundreds of youth from across the City. High school students race across a set route and complete a series of challenges at various prepared stations. All participants are given lunch, snacks, an event kit (t-shirt, bag, flashlight, etc), and sponsor gear to aid them throughout the day.
Our Charitable Cause
The Kids at Camp Program is run by the City of Markham to allow youth with special needs to attend summer camp programs at an affordable cost. After completing an application process, certain families will be eligible to send their child to camp for one week. As this cause relies solely on donations, MMYC’s contribution is imperative. The money MMYC raises will be added into an overall Kids at Camp fund that will assist youth all over Markham, ages 10-17, in attending summer camp.
How it’ll Run
Teams will sign up in groups of 2 racers and 1 chaperone (18+) through Google Forms. In order to be eligible to compete teams must raise $100. All proceeds go to City of Markham Kids at Camp Program. In locations around Markham, challenge stations are set up. Racers must decipher clues and follow a designated route to get to each station. Racers can utilise provided public transportation or walk/ run to stations. Each station can range from 20-45 minutes. Racers must complete all the stations, present the physical clues as evidence, and cross the finish line first! Winners will be awarded with certificates as well as monetary/sponsored prizes.

When: October 28th, 2016
MMYC’s first annual event Collage, was an amazing opportunity for over 30 youth councils across the GTA to network and socialise. With over 140 attendees, the event helped strengthen relationships between youth councils and develop long lasting partnerships. The night was filled with food, live music and games, and marked the beginning of yet another amazing year for youth councils.

The Amazing Race starts at the Markham Civic Center.
Raise at least $75 for the Ontario Mental Health Foundation (OMHF). The more you raise, the more benefits you receive!
The Amazing Race is a fast-paced adventure throughout the city of Markham. Form a team of 2 and complete skill-testing challenges that will involve memory, speed, and collaboration. Go against other racers, and raise money for the Ontario Mental Health Foundation! Collect donations by asking friends, family, and neighbours. You must raise at least $75 to compete (but great competitors such as yourselves should be able to do that, right?). Although, by exceeding this amount and being the team that raises the most money- you will be rewarded with advantages during the race! Be the first team to cross the finish line, and you may find yourself with a cash prize! Suit up and prepare for a race so good, it could even be called amazing.
