The Human Baton is a sporting event for this generation; a super sport relay race that combines 6 extreme sports into a race across land, sea, and air. It’s a new race experience that places the audience at the center of the action while creating a human connection between participants and spectators. We provide a positive impact to communities by creating lasting bonds and touching the lives of those involved. Join us as we set out on an adventure to change racing history!
This past September 11th, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, The Human Baton produced the Florida-based “Tribute to America’s Heroes” race event, in conjunction with The Veterans Trust, a veteran support organization. This was a slightly condensed version of the full blown THB super sport relay race, which included skydiving, drift car, supercars, and Thundercat boats, all along the main beachside streets of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
True to its “Tribute” name, the four teams who participated were Military, Police, Fire Rescue, and Patriots teams as a tip of the hat to our first responders who have sacrificed so much. The event was considered a critical success by the City of Ft. Lauderdale’s Visitors Bureau, the viewing audience in attendance, and by the municipal teams that participated.
Another huge win that came out of the event was the positive social impact that we had on those involved, as well as the community around us. Each of the Human Baton Athletes on the four teams represented local municipalities and competed to raise money for their charitable organizations, i.e. Fire Rescue, Police SWAT, Coast Guard - Military, and Veteran cancer survivors (American Patriots). Together, we were able to raise over $20,000 in charitable donations!
Through partnerships with select outside organizations, we were able to further expand our social impact and even address several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These impacts include increased food security, expanded education opportunities, increased job opportunities, and notable donations to a variety of charitable organizations. One of our highest callings at The Human Baton is to leave the world and the communities we operate in better than we found them. We are extremely happy to have had such a large impact through this event.
