Cadillac YMCA Raising Money with Amazing Race-Style Fundraiser

The Cadillac YMCA is planning a fun way to raise money for the community all while staying fit. Operation Road Block is an Amazing Race-style fundraiser.

Ymca LogoThe Membership and Marketing Director for the Cadillac Area YMCA, Bob Reddick, says it should be a lot of fun.

“All funds that are raised during the event go to our annual campaign which funds our financial assistance program. We offer financial assistance to the community to allow them to have a YMCA membership at a discounted rate based on income and family size,” Reddick explains.

Operation Road Block works kind of like the Amazing Race. Teams of four will rid on stationery bikes to reach a total of 50 miles. Of course, it wouldn’t be like the Amazing Race without a few road blocks. After every 10 miles a team does they’ll receive a challenge. The challenges could be anywhere from trivia or music to coordination challenges and more.

A $50 initial donation is required for teams to reserve their bikes and time slot. Reddick says it’s a fun way for the community to help the community while being healthy.

The races will be held Friday and Saturday April 8-9. Click here to donate or register your team of four.
