Organizers are leveraging the success of the first year to maximize funds raised

Organizers for the 2012 Grand River Amazing Race anticipate over $50,000 will be raised to support Women’s Crisis Services. This year’s goal more than doubles last year’s hugely successful race which brought in over $22,000 for the local charity.

“The race really caught on this year,” says Family Fund Weekend Committee Chairperson Bill McBay. “It’s a unique approach to fundraising and people are pumped to participate in support of such a worthwhile organization.”

Race designers Leanne Husk and Siobhan Furst say this year’s participants will be “blown away” by what’s in store, but not to expect any details just yet. The information about the race is very confidential. The only hint they have given away is that this year’s race will be a montage of Amazing Race meets Survivor with a hint of other popular reality shows mixed in.

The Grand River Amazing Race takes place Saturday July 21 and is part of an event called the Family Fun Weekend held in West Montrose July 20 and 21, 2012. Since its inception 12 years ago, the Family Fun Weekend has raised over $100,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of KW and Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region.

The Family Fun Weekend had its best year ever in 2011 with the addition of The Grand River Amazing Race. Held during the hottest spells in recent history, the weekend was filled with everything from outdoor movies, midway, carnival games and live entertainment on an outdoor stage. Families come to share the day or the entire weekend with funds raised going to Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region, Woolwich Community Services and Family Counselling Centre of Cambridge and North Dumfries.

“Each year we try to tweak our event to ensure we continue to grow the number of families that get to enjoy it with us,” says McBay. “There is certainly something for everyone.”

As the kids play, parents can check out the over 100 items in the silent auction or spin the crown and anchor wheel while enjoying some tasty BBQ food. Families can come for the day or the entire weekend and camp alongside the Grand River and historic Covered Bridge.

“There is no better way to spend a weekend than in the company of family and friends. The fact that we’re supporting an amazing charity in the process just makes it that much more worthwhile,” says McBay.
