Crystal D Participates in The MOST Amazing Race
Crystal D, St. Paul, Minn., a leading supplier of corporate awards and plaques, announced four employees participated 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 both St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Bridget Dahlgren, marketing coordinator; Angela Wurst, marketing coordinator; Matt Schramm, production craftsman, and Tone Contreras, production manager, made up Crystal D’s two participating teams.
The scavenger hunt-like race included a qualifying round in the morning with no more than 20 teams of two people competing in the final race in the afternoon. Crystal D’s teams completed five challenges during the qualification round. The challenges included an obstacle course, a Metro Transit quiz, trivia and a food challenge. Crystal D’s teams did not qualify for the final race.
Crystal D raised more than $1,600 to help The Salvation Army surpass its overall goal of $35,000.
“The MOST Amazing Race was such a great experience,” said Dahlgren. “We didn’t know what to expect, but it was fun to participate in the event, as well as raise money for such an important cause.”
