The second Amazing Race for Charity – Greene County will be held on Saturday, September 7 in downtown Jefferson. The chosen charity for all of the proceeds is the new proposed animal facility for Greene County. Pre-registration is suggested through the website at www.amazingraceforcharitygc.com with teams of two competing with good-natured challenges – physical, mental and new experiences. There is a limit of 50 teams. Staff at Greene County Chamber & Tourism and Jefferson Matters: Main Street can assist with registration.
Teams are encouraged to dress up in costume to add to the atmosphere. Check in time is 9 a.m. at the Mahanay Bell Tower. The VFW is offering a breakfast from 8 – 10 a.m. that morning with free-will donations going to the animal facility.
The Amazing Race competition begins at 10 a.m. and will take roughly 2 hours. A BBQ lunch is provided for the participants and volunteers at the end of the race on the plaza area. A local live band that was initiated into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, The Bushmen, will be performing during the post party.
Participation as a sponsor is also available to support the charity with information found on the website. Sponsors can be individuals, businesses or organizations – anyone wanting to support this fundraising effort. Spectators are welcome to watch the teams as they compete and listen to concert.
