A HUGE THANKS to all the racers who participated in this year’s Amazing Race to Serve! Together we raised almost $25,000 for this year’s Weekend of Service, and that’s pretty exciting! Click the following links to view the Winners Circle, Race Results, and Race Photos!
The 2013 Amazing Race to Serve took place on Saturday, February 2 and drew more than 400 participants. The entry fees helped North Coast Church reach their goal of raising $150,000 to cover materials for the 2013 Weekend of Service projects.
The event, inspired by “The Amazing Race” reality television show, featured wacky costumes, zany physical challenges, jaunts on public transit and a mad dash for the finish line. This is the second time North Coast Church has held this “scavenger hunt on steroids,” which dares teams of two to follow clues leading them from Oceanside Pier to Vista without using personal vehicles.
The high-energy kickoff event started at 8:00am at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheater, where each team received an envelope filled with 30 different top-secret tasks. Challenges included interaction with the public and mind-bending trivia leading to key area landmarks. Prizes were awarded for top finishers and best costumes.
The 2013 Weekend of Service will be April 27-28 and is expected to be bigger than ever. North Coast Church will cancel all church services and send over 6,000 people into the community to complete over 100 high-impact projects across San Diego North County.
