Crystal D to Compete in Salvation Army's The MOST Amazing Race
St. Paul, Minnesota-based Crystal D, a leading supplier of corporate awards and plaques, announced it will be participating in The Salvation Army’s “The 2009 MOST Amazing Race” on July 25. This fourth-annual fundraising event benefits The Salvation Army’s Bed and Bread Club, which helps alleviate hunger and homelessness in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Bridget Dahlgren, marketing coordinator, and Angela Wurst, marketing coordinator, will be Crystal D's participants in the 2009 race.
The scavenger hunt-like race includes a qualifying round in the morning with no more than 20 teams of two becoming eligible to compete in the afternoon's finale. Participants will be given a clue leading them to checkpoints throughout Minneapolis using only public Metro Transit. Upon arriving at the checkpoints, racers will be required to complete a physical or mental challenge before receiving the clue to the next checkpoint.
Teams raising $1,000 or more receive a one-minute head start at the qualifying race and teams raising $2,000 or more automatically qualify for the final race.
“We are both very excited to participate in such a unique fundraising activity for The Salvation Army,” said Dahlgren. “The MOST Amazing Race is a great way for Crystal D to fundraise as a team and show our commitment to the Twin Cities community,” she added. This is the first year Crystal D has participated in The MOST Amazing Race.
