Welcome to Carla's Fundraising Most Amazing Race Page
The Salvation Army’s Most Amazing Race is an annual city-wide challenge race held in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a Saturday each Fall. This year the race will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2016.
Patterned after the CBS show “The Amazing Race,” this Most Amazing Race combines challenges that are physical (kayaking, running, rock climbing), mental (puzzle solving, strategizing), and sometimes even silly (singing, eating contests), which scatters teams of two all over Pittsburgh.
The conclusion of the race involves a check presentation to the winning team as well as prizes to other top performing teams. Teams must raise funds to benefit The Salvation Army’s youth programming in order to qualify for the race, and are awarded advantages in the race and great prizes for being among the top fundraisers.
The Salvation Army aims to ensure all children have the opportunity to learn and prosper in a safe, compassionate environment. Our programs are designed to address the needs of youth where they live. As a result, we not only strengthen kids for a healthy future, but we also strengthen their families.
