The New Baden Lions Club will be hosting the sixth annual Clinton County Amazing Race on Sunday, Oct. 4, beginning at the New Baden Civic Center.
It’s not really a race, just a name. Time is not the winning factor. This event is designed and geared to be an entertaining day for everyone regardless if you are 5 years old or 75 years old. This year’s event will benefit HIS KIDS organization.
The event is a spinoff of the Amazing Race reality show, with a few tweaks. Teams will begin at the New Baden Civic Center, where they will be given a clue to find their first location within Clinton County. Once the team arrives at their first location, the team will be given a fun challenge to complete. Challenges are designed to accommodate all ages while providing entertainment for all involved.
If you are not familiar with the Clinton County area, no need to worry, as maps and hints will be provided to help you find your way. Teams are responsible for their own transportation to complete the route. All ages are welcome, but the driver must be at least 18 years of age.
A basket raffle, 50-50 tickets, food, and non-alcoholic drinks will be available all day at the Civic Center. Free games will also be available this year for the kids to play.
Teams can have two to six members, adults $10 and children 2-14 are $5 each. Registration begins at 11 a.m. in the Civic Center, with race to begin around noon. The event should be wrapped up before 6 p.m. Pre-registration is appreciated to help us with planning, but not necessary.
HIS KIDS Cancer Support is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Highland that has been serving childhood cancer families in our area since 1984.
