Worldwide sponsored fundraising challenge meets global rave
In Autumn 2021, Around the world in 80 Raves started engaging members of the public and the worldwide music industry partners in a collaborative fundraising challenge – to cover the 7,200 mile / 11,600km distance across some of the 26 countries where In Place of War has projects: Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Participants choose their own goal to be completed at their own pace, to contribute to the overall distance. You can choose to dance, walk, run, cycle or swim your distance goal and seek sponsorship for your efforts. There is the chance for you and your team to win amazing prizes donated by some of the event’s DJs, partners, and entertainment industry networks.
Each weekend of October will be soundtracked by streamed raves by DJs from all over the world, celebrating the efforts of all the fundraisers being sponsored to complete their distances. You don’t have to work in the music industry to join the Around The World in 80 Raves challenge, you just need to want to get moving to some fantastic music to play your part in making a real difference.
Through collaboration and partnership, they hope to create more than a fundraising challenge or campaign, they believe “This will be a movement of the music industry and music lovers becoming activists, harnessing the uniquely universal power of music to bring us all together and make a positive change with massive impact, and we’re encouraging industry teams, friends and family to get involved”
