Connie’s The Amazing Race is happening Saturday, May 18th here in Pendleton!! This is a fundraising event for Connie Hathcoat and will be a LOAD of fun for all involved!! The winning team claims the grand prize of a “Pendleton” Basket!
Format: The Amazing Race Fundraiser
It’s a race to get the most points! The format for the contest is 4 person teams crisscrossing town and working together to solve clues to destinations in and around Pendleton. Then they will complete challenges at each location. The teams are working to get the greatest number of points!
Complete the challenges quick to get the most points. There will also be other ways to get points that require being aware of your surroundings!
All teams will take off from the starting line armed with their team bags for collecting and with some useful tools. They will scatter in different directions as they follow their first destination clues. Once they reach their destination, they will complete the challenge that awaits! We will have business owners and/or Race Volunteers at each destination to verify their challenges.
Then, they will receive their next destination clue and do it all again! The Pendleton business owners have been very generous in donating to this event! We won’t tell your their names yet, as we don’t want to give away any of the locations prior to the race!
Teams will report to the finish line when they complete their mission and we will tally the scorecards to find out the winners!
The first 6 teams registered will also receive a Swag Bag for each team member filled with goodies! Are you signed up yet?
The Finish Line
The fun doesn’t end at the end of the race! Everyone is welcome to join us at the finish line for MORE fun! We will have raffles, t-shirt sales, food, a bake sale, music, etc… And, of course, the presentation of the Pendleton Basket to the winners! Come one, come all to greet the racers as they cross the finish line and for the festivities! Again, ALL the proceeds will go to Connie and help during her own amazing race.
Rules & Info, Registration Sheet, Sponsor Info and more are below. Get signed up quickly! Registration ends on May 10th and the event coordinators reserve the right to limit the number of teams!
Fundraiser for Connie
Connie Hathcoat is the beneficiary of the first annual “The Amazing Race” hosted by The Real Estate Pros of Keller Williams.
We live and work in the community and are passionate about giving back, as we are sure you are, too!
Connie is a lifelong Pendleton resident having raised her children here. She is a mother, grandmother, nurse, member of First United Methodist Church in town and is passionate about her kids, grandkids, church, working outside/gardening and fitness.
You may remember her as the manager and an instructor at My Time Fitness for a while! Connie has always been a giver – volunteering at church, with youth groups and numerous local organizations. Now, it’s time for Connie to “receive”.
Connie was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer and received treatment. Recently, she has also been diagnosed with colon cancer. She has been unable to work due to her treatments and this has put a financial strain on her family.
ALL the proceeds from The Amazing Race will be given to Connie as a token of our solidarity and to help offset her expenses during this trying time. Connie says she is in a race for her life and that she wins either way: staying with her earthly family or meeting her Lord. What a wonderful way to look at this.
Please join us in donating to this event or to Connie with your cash or check monetary donation. 🙂
