The Thomas Crosbie PACE Foundation (TCPF)– raising funds for our activities and the “Coldfire Festival”
This fund raising campaign is aligned with the Big Half Marathon being run on 1st March in London, focusing on the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich. The race starts at Tower Bridge. The Foundation has entered a team of 30 runners who thank you for your donations and support on the day. Thomas Kareem Crosbie, aka PACE, had a great passion for music and sport. He was a creative, sensitive and deep-thinking individual. He cared greatly about his family, friends and his community. He was a natural communicator and had an amazing capacity for bringing people together. The Foundation wants to make a difference to people’s lives in his memory.
He touched many people’s lives and will be remembered for his unique energy, and unbound kindness. He believed that all people were equal and felt great sadness for the inequalities that exist globally. He cared about the environment and human rights. He wished for the world to be a more peaceful and loving place. Thomas’s vision was to form a creative support hub that would be a place of inspiration and promote young people's wellbeing through the arts and sport by helping them understand the talents they have.
Those who loved him and those who studied with him, played football with him and worked alongside him have created the Thomas Crosbie PACE Foundation to honour that vision and continue his legacy. It is recognition of Thomas’s life and will not only celebrate his life but the lives of everyone involved. We are presently raising money for the next Coldfire Festival, which will take place in East London in summer 2021. Entrance is free, which will promote wellbeing; supporting and encouraging young people to discuss their mental health issues and promoting up and coming young artists through performances, writing workshops, music and sports. The Festival will reflect Thomas’s beliefs. We will be running workshops in schools prior to the Festival, involving sport, theatre and spoken word and promoting safe environments for young people to talk. But we need to work with and have the support of professionals in the area of mental wellbeing.
