• The Grand Race Road Rally Returns for 2009

Grand Race Road Rally

The Grand Race Road Rally returns for 2009.   Once again, teams of 4 will race around Grand Rapids following clues and taking on challenges to learn more about the wonderful diversity of our community. 

The Grand Race Road Rally is staged for us by the Public Museum.  Last year 42 people participated.  This year we have room for even more.

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.

The Road Rally is open to staff and attorneys of Warner Norcross & Judd and their family members and significant others. 

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 21 if you want to participate. 

Here is a video and a slideshow from last year’s Grand Race.
