Do Something Amazing! Join The Salvation Army for The MOST Amazing Race! April 6, 2013
"The 2013 MOST Amazing Race" is presented by AutoNation.
The MOST Amazing Race will take teams of two on a large scale adventure race around Fort Lauderdale. From the starting line, Ameroca's Backyard, teams will receive a clue leading them to a checkpoint somewhere in the city. Upon arriving at the various checkpoints, teams will be required to complete a challenge in order to receive the next clue. Challenges may involve tedious activities, trivia contests, food dares and may be physically or mentally demanding. Racers must travel on foot, Broward County busses or Sun Trolley. Any other means of transportation will result in disqualification.
Teams of two can be made up of friends, couples, co-workers or relatives. The event attracts philanthropic people who love a challenge, are smart, fun, fit and ready for adventure.
The first team to reach the finish line will win the grand prize of $3,000. The second place prize is $1000. The third place prize is two Nike GPS sport watches.
