3rd Annual Heroes Amazing Race

In support of the Vernon Jubilee Foundation

May 26, 2018


Ages 12 - 65

**Minors MUST be accompanied by an adult and have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian**


Test your limits and join the fight with Heroes Amazing Race! This race is for ages 12 - 65, and good for all fitness levels. Great for team building, competition between friends and a great way to connect with your kids or partners. Teams of two will race around Vernon. This race will take you on a trip around the city, with each leg requiring teams to deduce clues, navigate through foreign areas, interact with locals, perform physical and mental challenges, and vie for Sponsored Cars, buses, taxi and other public transportation options to arrive at your destinations. The first team to arrive at the end of the final leg wins the grand prize of $1 million dollars! Just kidding!! But a Wateway Houseboat Trip for 22 people is kinda AWESOME too!!


Ticket Price: $45 per person ($90 per team) or waive your ticket fee by raising $250+ as a team (There will be prizes for the most money raised!) If you will be raising money instead of purchasing a ticket please use PROMO CODE: PLEDGEME to get your tickets and we will take your money at the door.

ABOUT VERNON HEROES

In July of 2015, Melissa Gobbett and Lindsay James shaved 9 heads outside of a small salon on main street, in an effort to raise money for Brain Cancer Research. It was a blistering hot, the razor was over-heating and all the hair was sticking to the poor souls having their heads shaved. Nothing went as planned, but with the support of the community still managed to raise $10,000 that year. This was the only event Melissa would make it to. Sadly she passed away from Brain Cancer April 13th of the following year, just a couple months before their 2nd event. Heroes Amazing Race was created in their 2nd year and has doubled in attendance each year. May 26th will be the 3rd annual event and we are expecting approximately 300 in attendance. To Date Heroes has raised $49,000.


This year profits from the race will be donated to The Cancer Clinic Comfort Fund at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. The Comfort Fund is designated by the doctors and counselors at Cancer Clinic to patients expressing a need for financial support while dealing with cancer.
