Race 4 Good is a ‘hand up’ revolution birthed to tackle life-threatening challenges in devastated communities around the globe. Teams comprised of the best and brightest minds — private sector leaders and university students — come together in highly game-ified competitions, vying to implement their unique, sustainable solutions to urgent and very real social and economic crises. Harnessing their collective experience, innovation, passion and entrepreneurial acumen, some of the world’s seemingly intractable problems are solved within surprisingly collapsed time frames.
Where lives and livelihoods are imperiled, problems are solved in a “21 Day Challenge” that banishes donor fatigue, worker burnout, dependence, perpetual need and well-intended but unsuccessful ‘hand out’ relief efforts. Race 4 Good teams are tasked to research challenges facing a third world community and develop a 5-year business plan which, if implemented, would bring long-term, sustainable economic and social uplift to that area and transform lives. Race 4 Good has provided unique opportunities for business leaders and students to make a measurable difference and forge long-term links with communities in need.
