The Amazing Race will begin at the Markham Civic Centre.
Saturday, April 14th, 2018
What is the Event?
Markham’s Amazing Race is a full day event that brings together hundreds of youth from across the City. High school students race across a set route and complete a series of challenges at various prepared stations. All participants are given lunch, snacks, an event kit (t-shirt, bag, flashlight, etc), and sponsor gear to aid them throughout the day.
Our Charitable Cause
The Native Canadian Centre of Toronto is an organization that offers an extensive range of programs based on Indigenous traditions and teachings to youth across the GTA. They provide youth with the opportunity to explore several areas of their lives through education, recreational activities and traditions. As this cause relies on donations, MMYC’s contribution is imperative. The money MMYC raises through the Amazing Race will be donated to the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto’s youth programs.
How it’ll Run
Teams will sign up in groups of 2 racers and 1 chaperone (18+) through Google Forms. In order to be eligible to compete teams must raise $70. All proceeds go to The Native Canadian Centre of Toronto’s youth programs. In locations around Markham, challenge stations are set up. Racers must decipher clues and follow a designated route to get to each station. Racers can utilize provided public transportation or walk/run to stations. Each station can range from 15-30 minutes. Racers must complete all the stations, present the physical clues as evidence, and cross the finish line first! Winners will be awarded certificates as well as monetary/sponsored prizes.
