The MOST Amazing Race(s)!

Ever seen the CBS show “Amazing Race”?

The fun reality game show features teams of two people racing around the world making pitstops for prizes in attempt to win the scavenger hunt’s grand prize of $1,000,000. The show is reminiscent of the manic quest for money in the classic movie It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

A few years ago, various locations of The Salvation Army began their own version of the show called “The MOST Amazing Race”– minus the world traveling and the huge cash prize – but most certainly a ton more fun!

There’s definitely an incentive to win. To participate, teams are required to raise at least $250, every penny of which goes to The Salvation Army’s social services operating in the race’s hometown. If that do-gooder feeling doesn’t get your feet moving, the $5,000 grand prize will put a spring in your step!

You’ll need all the energy you can get to eat pizza on a whim or jump from a high dive!

One challenge required teams to answer 5 questions about restaurants, then call in an order for 2 pizzas, race to the restaurant, and eat their order!
