Relay adds ‘Amazing Race’-style scavenger hunt
Relay For Life of Mower County will host a new event in June that will also raise funds for the American Cancer Society — and it promises to be a challenge.
The first annual Relay For Life of Mower County Amazing Race will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, at Mill Pond Park. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The fee to register each car is $11 if pre-registered before June 17; day of the event registration is $15 per team/car. A team is comprised of as many people as can get fit into one car.
All of the challenges are a test of skill or luck — they are not physical in nature, said organizers.
While time is of the essence, the race is a type of scavenger hunt. The event requires teams to travel to five locations, with a challenge at each stop. The first team to reach the end point will receive a Relay For Life Gift Basket that includes a ribbon fleece blanket, other Relay For Life items, and a $20 gift card to Perkins Restaurant in Austin.
All participants will get a piece of cake once they finish the race.

Funds will be added to those raised by the annual Relay For Life of Mower County event, which will be held from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, at the Mower County Fairgrounds. A silent auction, vendors, kids’ activities and entertainment are all part of the day, and the Luminary Ceremony will begin at dusk.
