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.
