WHAT:Patterned after the popular television show "THE AMAZING RACE", teams of two race against other teams around a one (1) mile cross country course that includes up to eight (8) fun-filled stations. The clue cards provided at each station directs the team to perform a task (game, relay, obstacle course, etc.) before proceeding to the next station. The team that completes the tasks and reaches the finish line with the fastest overall time is declared the winner. Contestants should be prepared to get a little dirty and wet - it's part of the fun! This is a rain or shine event.
WHO: The race is for teams of two (2): adult/kid, kid/kid or adult/adult. (Kids = Kindergarten thru 12thgrade. ) Pre-K is allowed if paired with an adult. Teams can choose a recreation path (easier tasks for those teams with younger participants) or a competitive path (more difficult tasks for those physically active participants).
BENEFITING:Benefiting 30-MINUTES-A-DAY family initiative, a national campaign aimed at encouraging families to devote 30 minutes each day, at home, to 3 core activities (physical exercise, reading a book and healthy eating) that have the power to improve student's academic performance and family quality of life.
