Have you ever wanted to run a marathon?
How about PAINT A MARATHON?
That’s right, we are talking epic proportions! We, aspiring Naropa art therapy students, are hosting a 48 hour painting relay and are currently scouting participants for our three teams!
The Painting Marathon Relay is a fundraising project for the Naropa Community Art Studio International (NCAS-I). The event is part of a continued effort to raise awareness for the mission of NCAS-I and to raise funds for the Summer 2013 Service Learning Project to Cambodia. While in Cambodia, we will continue our partnership with Transitions, an organization that provides holistic and innovative longterm aftercare for adolescents girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking. We are also looking forward to collaborating with a number of other non-profits.
The relay will take place at a T.B.D. location on November 9, 2012 through November 11, 2012. We will begin at 9pm on Friday night and finish at 9pm Sunday night. The challenge is that each team will keep the brush going until the end of the relay where we will have created 3 paintings that will be given to each teams highest donor! The themes of each painting will be decided by each team captain and will be started and completed in the duration of this marathon.
What can you do to help?
You can sign up for a painting slot (3 hours) on one of our teams! Tell people to go to your team's crowdrise donation page and sponsor your time by making donations to the cause.
You can bring your family and friends to cheer us on!
