Amazing Race coming to Chilliwack streets

Registration deadline nearing for day-long fun race around Chilliwack

Who doesn’t love a day just to play and dress up?

On March 3, the Chilliwack Amazing Race will be the perfect day for both. The Shape Your World Society is holding the race as a fundraiser for their society and the Chilliwack Food Bank. Registration deadline is Monday, Feb. 26, and teams of four or five are invited to sign up and get creative.

Create a team name, and dress the part. Each team will require a car to get from point to point along the race route, and a phone with the ability to take photos.

The cost of registration is one item for the food bank or $5 (per team member). There are prizes for the winning team, but prizes for others as well, say organizers. Teams should prepare to spend the entire day at the event.

To register, email trish@shapeyourworldsociety.com with your team name and members of your team. For more information 778-240-2921, or visit totalmakeoverchallenge.com
