Introducing Harbor House's Amazing Race!
Based on the TV show the Amazing Race, Harbor House's Amazing Race will be a service-area challenge throughout Outagamie and Calumet Counties. Challenges will combine physical, mental, and comical tasks to complete to get a clue to the next clue with all teams working to make it to the finish line - all to support survivors of domestic violence!
THANK YOU for helping us raise over $50,000 to provide help, haven, and HOPE
for survivors of domestic abuse here in the Fox Valley!
Stay tuned for 2022 Harbor House Amazing Race event updates!
Harbor House's Amazing Race is all about having fun, spending time with loved ones in your social circle, and most importantly raising funds to support individuals in our community experiencing domestic abuse.
One in three women and one in seven men will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime.
Our vision at Harbor House is to empower communities to be free from domestic abuse through safety, knowledge, and engagement. Join us for our Amazing Race and help us end domestic abuse in our community and beyond!
Harbor House's Amazing Race FAQs
How do I create my team?
A team consists of 2-6 people or a car full. We are encouraging people to ask those already in their social circles in order to keep all participants safe and healthy.
How much does registration cost?
FREE! You can register your team for free, but in order to participate on April 17, your team must fundraise $300 before Friday, April 2.
For every $150 raised over $300, teams will receive a bonus ‘Light Up’ clue to help them navigate the race! Teams that raise the most money will get a prize package valued at over $500!
What is included with registration?
Registration includes the number of people on your team (2-6 people), (2) car magnets with your team name to mark your vehicle, printed materials, and your starting assignment. Your team will receive the car magnets, printed materials, and your starting assignment by mail closer to the event date.
How can my team fundraise for Harbor House?
When you register yourself to participate, you will be prompted to create or join your team's fundraising page. Once you update your team's information and make it your own share your fundraising page with your social networks. Social Media, emails, letters, text, etc. - any way you can reach your contacts to ask them to support your team!
Will every team that enters be allowed to race?
The first 30 teams that enter and raise $300 will be on the roster! Let’s go!
How athletic do I need to be to participate?
This is a test of wits, good humor, and teamwork more than athleticism. It’s not a marathon race, but you will need to be comfortable exerting a little hustle in the challenges. There is limited running/walking required.
Is there an age limit/requirement for participants?
Racers must be at least 18 years old. There is no upper age limit!
What if I can’t race, but still want to support the event?
