STREB’s Action Maverick Award Benefit celebrates the heroes who inspire us, and serves as our signature fundraising event, helping us to pursue our mission and sustain our entire organization. Funds raised support Elizabeth Streb’s groundbreaking work through the STREB Extreme Action Company’s performances, which take place at our home in Brooklyn and around the world; our educational partnerships and community engagement programs that inspire and empower the Action Heroes and leaders of tomorrow; and, it ensures accessibility by supporting our scholarship and ticket subsidy programs.
This year, Elizabeth Streb will present the 2022 Action Maverick Award to the visionary educator Kathy Nobles in recognition of Nobles’ three decade career in NYC’s public schools, where she inspired thousands of students to find their individual passion for physical movement, and emboldened them to feel safe taking risks.
Funds raised support Elizabeth Streb's design and invention of new machines which allow Elizabeth Streb and our Action Heroes to explore and discover new movement territories
Lead sponsors for the event to date include Bloomberg Philanthropies, Neil & Machiko Mazzella and Andrea Woodner & Allison Kavey.
