Parkside’s first ever Race for Amazing Charities contained so much good! 12 teams of 2-4 members entered the competition which took them all over town. From jelly belly tasting quizzes to kayaking across Hayward every contestant had a blast. Some threw up when it came time to drink 1L of Perrier. Some found new levels of frustration shooting marshmallow guns. Others simply got lost.
The good news was that every team made it back to a delicious taco bar and we raised over $2,000 for the New Beginnings Women’s Association (a ministry in Mexico that helps single moms get back on their feet).
A bunch of hard working volunteers helped behind the scenes with set-up, hosting stations, and other details. A huge thank you to Maureen, Jessica, and Lynda for planning and organizing this event. Everyone had smiles and is already excited to compete next year. It was so much fun! So, stay tuned for next year’s details and sign-up in advance as space is limited.
