ThinkTank December 2017

Leave your mark.

MMYC presents ThinkTank, an evening of inspirational speeches, live entertainment, friends, and food. Annually, it brings almost 200 high school students from across Markham and the GTA together under one roof – allowing youth to network while listening to passionate speakers with topics ranging from personal growth to humorous anecdotes, from personal shortcomings to noteworthy successes. This year, our theme is “leave your mark” and we hope that you are as excited as we are to hear what this year’s amazing speakers have to say.

Join us this year at ThinkTank December 2017! The event will take place at the Rouge River Community Centre on Saturday, December 2nd from 5:30 to 9:30 PM.


Update: Thanks to everyone who came to ThinkTank. We hope that you all had a great time and each took something home – whether that is a lesson or a source of inspiration – from our amazing speakers.

We would also like to send our thanks to our amazing speakers and performers. You all helped to make ThinkTank the unforgettable event that it is.

Finally, a huge shoutout to our many sponsors who made ThinkTank 2017 possible: HCafe Unionville, Quiznos (Highway 7 and McCowan), next to Markville Mall), Brain Power, Mathnasium Markham and Domino’s Pizza.

Amazing Race 2017


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.
