STARmazing Race

9 May

Lucky13’ers, I want to tell you about an amazing….no, a STARmazing…event that is coming up in the Boston area that benefits a GREAT organization called the Starlight Foundation of New England.

Starlight Foundation provides entertainment and education activities for kids and families in the hospital and in the community to help ease their pain and take their mind off of what they go through each day because of their illness.  While doctors work to treat the kids, the folks at Starlight work to lift their spirits and help them have fun and just “be kids.” 🙂  They give kids struggling with serious illness experiences such as a first Red Sox game, a live musical, going to a rodeo, or even the prom!  Services are 100% made possible by donor and community support, which is why events are so important to the organization.  The STARmazing Race is also HUGE for Starlight because all of the proceeds directly benefit children struggling with chronic and life-threatening illness right here in the Boston area!

The STARmazing Race is on Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 11:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.  It is an urban scavenger hunt that sends racers on an adventure throughout Boston, following clues and completing crazy challenges!  [get your FITNESS on while supporting a great cause and having fun with friends!!!]  I hope you’ll join me in this race and invite your friends to do the same!!!

It is $50 per racer and you can race in teams of 2, 3, or 4. Registration gets you entry into the event, a swag bag, breakfast at the start line, and food at the finish line celebration at Game On! Fenway. We award prizes for the top three finishers and other silly prizes for best dressed, most team spirit, and more 🙂
