Accor’s race raises over $240,000 for Mission Australia

Twenty-one teams from Accor hotels across the country participated in the inaugural Race to Survive: Mission Possible Australia,

a three-day adventure challenge and raised an incredible $240,855.21 to benefit disadvantaged Australians through Mission Australia.

The hotel teams not only held fundraising events in their local communities but also competed in a gruelling three-day adventure challenge of strategy, strength and camping out on the Sunshine Coast last week. Australian ironman and ironwoman champions, Matt Poole and Candice Falzone were also on hand to race teams to the finish line at Novotel Twin Waters Resort.

Accor Australia VP, Simon McGrath presented a cheque for $240,855 to Mission Australia CEO Toby Hall at a celebration dinner at Novotel Twin Waters Resort on 28 October.

Funds raised from Race to Survive will directly benefit Mission Australia services including Café One on Wickham (QLD) – connecting people and combating homelessness; MissionBeat (NSW) – combating homelessness; Charcoal Lane and Aboriginal Driver Education Program (VIC) – pathways to employment for Indigenous youth; Parents Staying Connected (TAS) – strengthening families and children; Youth Beat (SA) – empowering and supporting young people; Drug and Alcohol Youth Service, Yirra Rehabilitation Program and Youth Accommodation Support Service (WA) – providing pathways to a successful youth; and Saltwater Kitchen (NT) – pathways to employment for indigenous youth.
