Amazing Support Made “The MOST Amazing Race” a Hit – Again!

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Last weekend, the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota were transformed into one giant race course for several dozen brave adventurers.

The Salvation Army Northern Division hosted their sixth annual “MOST Amazing Race,” patterned after the CBS hit show “The Amazing Race.” 24 teams of two hussled from checkpoint to checkpoint where they faced mental and physical challenges that ranged from fun to silly to difficult to tasty! See the photo captions for more details – there’s one challenge in particular that would make even the bravest of the brave think twice…

Congrats to Grant Dietrich and Jesse Struve of the team “Two Guys,” first-time winners of The MOST Amazing Race and the $5,000 grand prize provided by the race’s corporate sponsors! They crossed the finish line with an impressive time of 4 hours, 8 minutes, followed closely by teams “Let’s Winning” and “Super Karate Monkey Death Car.”

While the race is a ton of fun, it also supports an important cause as teams fundraise in order to compete. The earnings benefits The Salvation Army’s Bed and Bread Club, which helps alleviate hunger and homelessness in the Twin Cities. Over $214,000 has been raised since the event started in 2006. This year competitors and donors helped raise more than $22,000!

We also want to shout the praises of our teams who did an amazing job with fundraising: congratulations to our top fundraising team “Adventure Guy and Gal,” along with “House of Luu’s” and “Two Guys.”

Find more info about the race, plus awesome photos, at www.thesalarmy.org/race. We already can’t wait for next year!
