AMAZING RACE FOR CHARITY 5TH ANNUAL WRAP-UP PARTY

AMAZING RACE FOR CHARITY 5TH ANNUAL WRAP-UP PARTY

Eustis, Fla. (May 2, 2018) Each year in April, hundreds of racers descend upon Eustis to tackle more than 20 wacky, fun challenges at area businesses, schools, and parks as part of the Amazing Race for Charity.  During its first four years, the race’s 300-plus volunteers raised more than $100,000 for local charities. 

“The Amazing Race for Charity is unique because it raises money for a dozen non-profit organizations all on the same day,” says Jill Baker, one of the race’s founding board members who is in charge of sponsorships.  “We are able to not only donate tens of thousands of dollars to these local charities, but we connect hundreds of people to raise awareness.”

The Amazing Race for Charity will celebrate their 5th Annual Wrap-up Party by announcing the total net proceeds from the race and distribute checks to the charities on Monday, May 14th at 5:30 p.m. located at My Favorite Things in Eustis (132 E. Magnolia Ave). They will also have a video to view the actual race.
