ACRES Project To Host Amazing Race Fundraiser November 6

The ACRES Project (Adults Creating Residential and Employment Solutions) is hosting an amazing race fundraiser from 1 p.m to 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 6, starting at Radio Park Elementary School in State College.

This fundraiser is set to raise money for ACRES itself, as its mission is to “foster independence, self-advocacy, social opportunities, and work/life skills for adults with autism,” according to its site.

The entry fee is $20 per person, and teams can consist of two or four members each. Twenty different stations will be set up along the route, highlighting challenges that people with disabilities have to face every day.

Each team will also add up its points along the route, and the teams that accumulate the most points will win prizes at the conclusion of the race.

Teams can start their fundraising campaigns once they are registered. Additionally, the team that is able to fundraise the most will win a trip to Barony Beach Club Resort on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

If you want to participate in the race, the link to sign up can be found here.
