• Details on the Grand Race Road Rally – June 14



On Saturday, June 14 from noon to 5:00 p.m.  the Grand Rapids Public Museum, along with local merchants and community organizations, will be staging The Rally exclusively for Warner Norcross & Judd.

Similar to CBS’s The Amazing Race, participants in the Rally will use clues to discover the diversity within our Grand Rapids community. Teams of two or four people will traverse through our local community via car. (Depending upon the level of participation, we may have to combine two person teams into teams of four.)

Each team will begin at the Public Museum, where teams will receive a parking pass (one per team), map and first clue. Clues will direct teams around Grand Rapids to seven or eight local destinations. At each stop, the teams will have to complete a challenge or activity, such as learning to count to ten in Chinese or trying a new ethnic food. Upon completion of the task, teams will be given the clue to their next destination.  

Teams will come full circle and meet again at the Public Museum at the end of the race where there will be refreshments and an awards ceremony.

Because there are many logistics and community businesses and organizations involved in this event, it is important that you RSVP to Robin Keith by Friday, May 22 if you want to participate. 

The event is limited  to 100 people and 25 teams on a first-come first-served basis. We encourage you to sign up as a team, but you may sign up as an individual and we will assign you to a team. You may include family members and/or your significant other as part of your four-person team.
