The Amazing Race for Rescue is a Road Rally. You will receive clues that direct you to a stop, where you must complete a task before receiving your next clue. The first team that completes all the tasks, and is the first to arrive at the Finish Line will receive the $1,000 Grand Prize.
The clues should not be too difficult to figure out but an answer envelope will be provided. However, you will receive a 5 minute penalty if you have to use it.
There will be Elimination Rounds.
All players will receive tickets to attend the Finish Line Festivities the day of the race. It starts at 6 pm and will be at the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple. The public is invited to attend, it includes dinner, prizes awarded and a silent auction benefitting the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission.
