Teams are gathering this week to enter “The Amazing Island Raise” on Saturday, June 8, a fun event in the Put-in-Bay area on South Bass Island. The race, which mirrors “The Amazing Race” television show, will have teams competing to solve clues, complete challenges and win prizes.
The competition benefits Joyful Connectsions, a supervised visitation and exchange center in Oak Harbor that provides a child-focused, healthy, safe and homelike environment where children can visit and stay connected with family members.
The Amazing Island Raise entry deadline for teams is Friday, May 24. Entry is $40, and includes round-trip transportation to South Bass Island on the Miller Ferry, team T-shirts, drawstring backpacks and food after the event.
To enter, visit www.joyfulconnections.com or email Sheila Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teams will meet at 11 a.m. for the trip to the Miller Ferry dock on Catawba Island on June 8. The ferry will leave at noon.
