Thanks to all who made the 2016 MOST Amazing Race a success! From amazing donors and volunteers, to speedy racers and awesome cheer teams - you all played a crucial role in a MOST amazing day.
Like the popular TV show, The Salvation Army’s MOST Amazing Race gives teams of two an all-access pass as they race around the Twin Cities. Teams follow clues to reach checkpoints, where they complete a task before moving on to the next location.
The tasks can be mental, like assembling a gas pipeline, or physical, like performing a choreographed dance. Sometimes tasks are downright thrilling, like jumping off a 10-meter diving platform. Others are just plain fun, like bouncing across a field inside a giant inflatable ball.
All the money raised by The MOST Amazing Race funds Salvation Army food and housing programs in the Twin Cities. Here are specific ways that money helps:
Thanks in part to funds raised from this event, The Salvation Army is able to serve more than 187,000 people a year in the Twin Cities.
