On Saturday 29 February, EG, Ryan Avery and 1,000 community participants will gather at the Flour Mill of Summer Hill and attempt to break the world record for the largest human image of a house.
The current world record, 787 people, will be broken with 1,000 people to represent the 100,000+ homeless people in Australia. Not only will the event raise awareness of homelessness in Australia, but all proceeds will go toward Youth Off The Streets to support homeless young people.
EG and Youth Off The Streets are inviting the community to support the event and help form the shape of a house in Mungo Scott Plaza.
Lex Nadine Lutherborrow, Deputy CEO at Youth Off The Streets, says it is crucial that the community is aware of homelessness and is part of the response.
“Our Inner West services work with around 770 young people a year who either live in the inner west or seek support from this area. It is clear that the existing strategies need a review in approach. Increasing community awareness of the issues our young people face is a first step.”
“The world record attempt with EG is a great way to come together as a community, raise funds to support our services, raise awareness and start conversations on the issue so many young people still face,” says Lutherborrow.
Youth homelessness is an issue close to the hearts of the EG team as well, says CEO Adam Geha.
“EG has partnered with Youth Off The Streets in this World Record attempt because we are passionate about supporting local communities. Sharing this beautiful space at our Flour Mill development at Summer Hill will make the day all the more memorable,” added Geha.
The world record attempt will raise awareness of this national issue and support Youth Off The Streets as they continue providing support for at-risk young people. In addition, the day will also include: food and drink stalls, photo opportunities with the world record plaque; an announcement of the fundraising tally and celebrations.
The event is generously sponsored by a range of contributors to the Flour Mill of Summer Hill community; EG Developments, Daiwa House Australia, Cosmos Australia, Sumitomo Forestry Australia, Colliers International, Richard Crooks Constructions, National Facilities Management and Rombro Constructions.
