Moscow Race for Action

Moscow Race For Action

This year, the Earth Fest Planning Committee is planning a new, fun and interactive race that aims to bring Moscow together and support our local non-profits. The Moscow Race for Action: Bring It Together will take place on Saturday, April 26, at East City Park from 1:00 – 6:00p.m.

How it works: Up to twenty local non-profits will host sites throughout Moscow. Teams of two will be sponsored to race to six non-profit sites and complete a 20 minute activity at the site. Possible activities include, painting a wall, planting a tree or learning about that non-profit through an interactive task. Sponsors will donate $100.00 to have a team in the race.

The first three teams to complete all six activities and return to East City Park win! Each winning team will choose a participating local non-profit to receive a percentage of the total earnings from the race.

1st place – 50% 
2nd place – 30% 
3rd place – 20%

Example:  50 teams would raise $5,000 total. 50% = $2500 to give to the participating non-profit of their choice.

Get involved in two different ways:

  1. Sponsor a team with $100. Support local non-profits by sponsoring a team to take part in the race. The deadline to sign up as a team sponsor is Friday, April 25, 2014. Sign up to Sponsor A Team.
