This year, they are combining what they are known for with a humanitarian cause.
Punk Rope’s founder, Tim Haft, has decided to donate 100% of the profits from the event’s registration fees and merch sales to the valiant efforts of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to provide humanitarian aid to the Syrian refugees. The 7th Annual Punk Rope Games will take place on Sat, Sept 26 from 11:30am-2pm at Newtown Barge Playground.
Subtitling the Games as the “Skip for Syria’s Children” Haft hopes the event will not only provide the IRC with some much needed financial support, but will also raise awareness of the crisis in the eyes of the competitors and spectators. “While we may not all have the ability to host a fleeing family, we can still do something constructive and positive to help the refugees.”
DATE: Saturday, September 26
LOCATION: Newtown Barge Playground
SUGGESTED DONATION: $40 per person for competitors and $10 per person for spectators
