Sign up still available for Race for Kids

There’s still time to register for the wildly popular Race for Kids fundraiser.

There’s still time to register for the wildly popular Race for Kids fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake and District.

The Amazing Race-style event, which takes place June 3, will see all proceeds go to the organization’s programs to help benefit kids in the community.

The Race for Kids is for adults 18 years and older who will compete as teams of four.

“Participants receive a clue sheet and they’ll have to solve 10 clues which will lead them to 10 different locations in town, and once they get to those locations they’ll have to complete a small five- to 10-minute challenge and then move on to the finish line,” said operations co-ordinator with the BGCWLD, Stefanie Hendrickson.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers, along with the top individual fundraiser, the best dressed team and the best effort team.

“We try to do new checkpoint locations — change it up a bit so no teams have an unfair advantage if they’ve participated before,” Hendrickson said. “It’s just a really fun, team-building event for a group of friends or a group of co-workers.

“The event has been really well received in the community so we’re really excited to be able to offer it again and it’s really something that is unique to Williams Lake.”

Anyone wishing to put in a team can register at www.raceforkids.ca/williamslake.

The cost is $10 per participant and there is a $360 fundraising minimum per team.
