Venture Adventure – Vernon’s Amazing Race

May 11 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$100.00
Vernon's Amazing Race

Venture Adventure – Vernon’s Amazing Race is looking for 30 teams of four to participate in the May 11 event.

If you have ever watched “The Amazing Race” on television, you will have a pretty good idea about how Venture Adventure works. Teams progress from station to station where they will need to successfully complete a task before proceeding to the next station. The challenges will be as varied as the sponsors that design them: you may be solving a puzzle at one station then moving on to test your balance or fitness at the next station.

Teams are encouraged to pick a catchy team name and dress correspondingly. Whether your team is in the “fit” or the “fun” division, you will have the chance to win some awesome prizes!

Once you have completed all the stations, grab your teammates and head over to the Marten Brewing Beer Gardens to enjoy some great music, food and refreshments.

One of the top cyclists in the world wants people to join her on an adventure.

Leah Goldstein, a world-class cyclist, will be at the event that will raise money for Venture Training‘s Cycle Cycle program.

Goldstein is participating in Race Across America and has teamed up with Vernon’s Venture Training as a charity of choice.

Lori Moger, No Finish Line Living is organizing the Vernon event for Goldstein, who has an autistic nephew and was so impressed with Venture Training she wanted to team up with them.

Moger said teams of four can compete in the fit or fun divisions.

“They will go from station to station, which will each have a different sponsor, competing in challenges at each one and it could be anything from a fitness challenge to a puzzle to a brain teaser, balance beam – anything to test the limits of what your team can bring,” said Moger, adding registration is open and there is only room for 30 teams.

There is a $100 minimum per team, but there will be a prize for the team that brings in the most money.

While there is no restriction on the male/female split of teams, Moger does suggest they encompass a range of abilities.

By 17, Goldstein was the world kickboxing champion. Shortly thereafter, she enlisted in the Israeli military and became one of the few female instructors of the elite commando division, specializing in krav maga. She then transitioned into a special forces unit, combating terrorism and violent crime.

The extreme lifestyle of the secret police eventually took its toll, and she found her salvation on a bicycle.

She convinced Israel to release her, as she pursued a brilliant 10-year career as a professional cyclist in Europe and North America – and eventually to the longest single stage race in the world, Race Across America.
