JOIN US SATURDAY, JUNE 11, 2016 FOR THE 11TH ANNUAL AMAZING RACE!
THE HISTORY OF THE AMAZING RACE
The Amazing Race was launched in 2006 to create awareness and support of our work to provide more affordable housing in the Region of Waterloo. Based upon the hit reality show, The Amazing Race for Heartwood Place includes interesting and unexpected challenges across Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge which test skill, navigation and speed. With modes of travel limited to bicycles, public transit, walking and running - with the occasional chartered bus trip for relaxation, racers are challenged to determine how to reach each destination as quickly and easily as possible. At the end of the day, participants have a lot of fun!
The fun exchanging stories about what happened along the way, sometimes complaining that their team members were not as swift as they hoped! There’s a great blend of camaraderie and competitive outpouring and strong commitment to supporting Heartwood Place. Other teams are “in for the fun of it” and relieved to reach the end point, then share a hearty meal.
