Winners of the 5th Annual Grand Race Road Rally

Nine teams competed in the 5th Annual Grand Race Road Rally on Saturday.  Organized by the Grand Rapids Public Museum for Warner Norcross & Judd, the Grand Rapids Road Rally sent teams racing around the Grand Rapids metropolitan area following clues that lead them to 7 different cultural locations. At each location, the teams had to complete a challenge to earn the clue to the next location.

The first team to finish this year was Team #1 from Fifth Third Bank, competing in the clients and friends division. Coming in first from Warner Norcross & Judd was the Team #8.  Following the Road Rally, the teams gathered at the museum for an awards ceremony, with winners receiving gift certificates from area merchants and loving cups turned on a lathe at the Public Museum.

Our thanks to Gina Bivins, Public Programs Manager at the Public Museum, and all of her staff and volunteers who made the 5th Annual Grand Race Road Rally another big success.
