Families have a chance to have fun and raise money for the Reimagine Project during next month’s Grand Haven version of “The Amazing Race.”

The event is slated for 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 12.

Teams of 4-6 people, ages 8 and older, will stop by venues in downtown Grand Haven where they will complete tasks. The first team to complete all of the tasks will be named the winner. The teams will receive clues to figure out venues where they will complete various tasks.

Participants can register online at gh-reimagine.org/news-2/. The cost to register is $35 a person. 

While registration is open now though May 5, organizers won’t be able to guarantee shirts for participants registered after Monday, April 30, according to Jeff Troupe, a member of the Reimagine Project’s accessibility steering committee.

Teams will pick up their packets between 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. on race day at the Grand Haven Community Center, 421 Columbus Ave., where they will begin and end their adventure.

Packets will include a bag, T-shirt and other items for participants. Food will also be available following the event.

Troupe, a special-education teacher at Grand Haven High School, noted that roads won’t be closed during the event, and adults should sign up to be on teams with children.

More than 30 people have registered so far, and spaces remain open.

The Reimagine Project to build a new Imagination Station at Mulligan’s Hollow is estimated to cost about $500,000. Volunteers are expecting to build the new play space this fall.

Anyone interested in volunteering for “The Amazing Race” can sign up online at www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b44abad2fa5fc1-grand.
