Amazing Race Niagara 2020 @ Polonia Park
Sep 13 @ 11:00 am
Based on the popular TV shows Amazing Race & Amazing Race Canada – Amazing Race Niagara is a car rally, scavenger hunt, team competition for friends, colleagues or families. It is a fun event consisting of teams of four who travel by car throughout the Niagara Region competing against each other & the clock, deciphering clues to find locations, completing various activities/challenges to receive clues for the next location. You can ‘Be a Hero for just one day’ and let children & youth and their families impacted by abuse in the Niagara region know you care. Over 90% of the funds raised from this event directly support the much-needed programs & services required to provide help, healing & support to children, youth and their families. The race will look a little different this year as we adhere to public health guidelines. The race will be a combination of physical challenges and virtual checkpoints. The event start & finish line is at Polonia Park, conveniently located at 765 York Road in Niagara-On-The-Lake ON. Minutes from the QEW and situated in a beautifully tranquil wooded area. A registration fee of $25/person includes a survivor bag for each team member, snacks, and dinner. Participants have a minimum pledge amount of $400/team to enter the Race.
