This past weekend we held the Family Fun Weekend and  the 1st annual Grand River Amazing Race. The race was a huge success raising over $22,000 for Womens Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (Anselma house). What an amazing outcome for the 1st annual Grand River Amazing Race.

Our winners and top fundraisers were the Winmar Restoration Girls Gone Wild! For their fundraising efforts they were rewarded the grand prize which was, use of a luxury trailer and hot/cool tub for the entire weekend. The same team actually went on to have the fastest time in the race and therefore also get their names on the Grand River Amazing Race Cup!!!

We would like to thank all the Grand River Amazing Race teams for raising  money for Womens Crisis Services of Waterloo Region.

We would like to give special thanks to our sponsors as well as  all the volunteers including many from Kin Canada and our own fellow club Members.

In addition to the above thanks, we would like to also thank the 1st London MedVents/Rovers for providing medical services!

Finally we would like to give a very special thanks to the West Montrose Family Camp for hosting the event. The event was a major success because of all their support!!!!!
