With the 2nd Annual Evening of Will Power now in our rearview mirror, we look ahead to the next event. Taunia Kipp has been organizing a Cannonball Run Challenge for the last three years. Each year, she selects a local charity to donate proceeds from the event. This year, she has graciously selected the Brave Will Foundation as the recipient.
So what is the Cannonball Run Challenge, you ask? It’s truly one of the most unique fundraising events we’ve seen in this area. This year, it will be held on Saturday, June 4th at 2:00 at the Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs. We’ll let Taunia explain the details:
Here’s how it works: Please arrive on-time! There will be a short presentation of rules and then placement of everyone into teams of 4 (unless you already have an established team of 4 people at time of registration. Provisions will be made for odd-numbered teams so bring as many friends as you want!). Each team will be given an envelope containing a list of challenges and their point values. Teams will then have 15 minutes to meet to decide a team name, and “strategize” which challenges your team will attempt to accomplish and to plot your route. Teams have exactly 2 hours to accomplish your missions.
The more difficult the challenge, the more points you can earn as a team. The team with the most points after two hours (with supporting photographic evidence) wins a cash prize.
The cost to enter the event is $25 and includes a t-shirt. If you would like to register for the event, be sure to visit the official website.
The Brave Will Foundation would like to thank Taunia for supporting our cause and we look forward to what will surely be a day of many smiles and laughs at a very unique event.
