Team Information for the Amazing Race, Sept 22, 2018
We've compiled all of the information you need for Race Day in one spot, including: Registration, Waivers (must be completed ahead of time for minors whose guardians are not attending race), Prizes, the Remind app we will use to communicate with you, and a special contest involving a Food Drive for Zion Lutheran Church.
We will have more contests at the after-party for everyone. And bring some cash to take part in our Plinko game to win even more!
- Registration begins at 12:15 PM. Our Parking Guides will direct you once you arrive at Cordage Park.
- Your team captain will be provided with a drawstring bag for personal belongings and your race packet that includes all the details you’ll need. Water stops are placed along the course.
- Race FAQ’s can be found at: https://healthyplymouth.org/ healthy-plymouths-amazing- race-faqs
- Follow us on Facebook for updates: https://www.facebook.com/ HealthyPlymouth/
- Plan to earn some prizes!
- Ask friends and family to support your team - Top three fundraising teams over $200 win prizes (and each team earns $25 gift card for every $100 raised)
- Best Team Costume – not mandatory, but teams had a ton of fun with this last year (see recent post on FB)
- Most Team Spirit – to be judged by the Pit Stop volunteers. Make an impression!
Waiver of Liability
Team members will be asked to complete a waiver and photo release at race registration.
Important: If you are racing on Saturday with a minor, and you are not their parent or guardian, you must bring a Waiver and Photo release, signed by the minor's parent or guardian, with you on Saturday in order for that racer to participate! This is very important! Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Wendy at 774-217-9667.

The Food Drive
During the race we hope you learn a lot about North Plymouth and its history while you are having fun.
For example, did you know…During the Depression, The Cordage Company rented movies and showed them onsite for the workers’ families. The price of admission was a canned good. The company then gave those canned goods to the neediest of their families. In the spirit of this tradition we introduce… The 2018 Amazing Race Food Drive
Join Healthy Plymouth in the fight against hunger and food insecurity as we support the food pantry needs of one of our longtime crusaders, Zion Lutheran Church.
Pastor Robert Stott and the congregation of Zion Lutheran Church have been an essential link to the work we do in North Plymouth. As our partner, they are the host venue of our annual April Vacation Week camp, family cooking classes, Middle School Coffee House performances and more.
This year we ask each racer and volunteer to bring at least one non-perishable item to the Amazing Race. This food will go to the Zion Lutheran food pantry for their Thanksgiving basket program. For every item you donate, you will receive a ticket to be entered into our raffle for an overnight at the 1620 Hotel! Items neded include:
Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets
Stuffing/bagged like Pepperidge Farm or boxed mix like Stove Top
Gravy/Jar or can
Canned Vegetables: Corn, Green Beans, Peas, Carrots
Cornbread Mix...preferably "just add water" like Jiffy or Krusteaz
Fruit Snacks (boxes with individual packets)
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Meals in a Can like hearty soups, Dinty Moore stew, Chef Boyardee products
Personal Hygiene Items...toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, deodorant, shampoo, feminine hygiene products
