Oh to be a kid again...

The 3rd Annual Race for Kids being held Saturday, June 16th, 2018 at the Boys & Girls Club – Whitney Pier Youth Club, 111 West Street, Sydney and is presented by Sydney Credit Union.

This event is a return to the best adventures of childhood, embracing the carefree days of being a kid, and a bonding experience for participants as they challenge their skills while raising much needed funds.

It's part The Amazing Race, part Minute to Win It, but all fun. And it raises funds needed to help support our children and youth. Teams of four will compete in 10 themed challenging checkpoints in a race to the finish line. Checkpoints will be designed to incorporate activities that focus the mind and challenge the body.
