THE STORY:

Please donate to our team and help us raise awareness, and provide better education, on the subject of sexual assault. If you can, come on out to Youngstown on August 2nd and support our Thruway Hardwood & Plywood Corp sponsored contraption team!

What is the It Happened To Alexa Foundation?

The Alexa Foundation is a national foundation located in Lewiston NY that supports victims of sexual assault and the funding raised through the Great Contraption Race is to expand our WNY educational outreach in the schools teaching healthy relationships and personal safety. If you would like more information please go to www.ithappenedtoalexa.org.

What is the Great Contraption Race?

The Great Contraption Race (GCR) is a fun, 2-person and or 4-person team race that will soon become The WNY event that will be on everyone’s bucket list near and far! On Saturday August 2, 2014 teams will race down the lower Niagara River on their floating contraptions beginning in Lewiston, NY finishing in Youngstown, NY, and finishing in Youngstown, NY's Veteran's Park. . 

The race occurs on floating contraptions designed and built by each team. The contraptions must be made mostly from recycled materials, they must be able to float and the contraption can only be powered by human power, and or, a man made sail to float down the River.

Costumes and themed contraptions are highly recommended. Food and beverage will be supplied at the finish line where we will celebrate a fun-filled day in the incredible lower Niagara River Region with music and awards for team competitors and their support crews. This area is also open to spectators and visitors as well as the communities that make up the lower Niagara River Region.

Proceeds from this great event are going to the very worthy, 'It Happened To Alexa Foundation.' The Alexa Foundation is a national charity based in Lewiston, NY that assists rape victims and their families. Please join us for this fun filled event starting on Aug 1, 2014 with our VIP event under the stars – Saturday Aug 2 – Race on the mighty Niagara ending with a fun- filled day of music and delicious food from local eateries.
