Entertaining Amazing Race for Life of Westchase Returns in May

The Sixth Annual Amazing Race for Life of Westchase is coming on May 21.

For the sixth year the Amazing Race for Life is back in Westchase! If you've participated in it before, you know how much fun it is! But if you've missed one of the Northwest area’s most entertaining events of the year, be sure to register today.

The race will return to the Westchase Recreation Center on Sunday, May 21, at 1 p.m. Come join the fun as your team of family and friends compete with other Westchase teams to solve clues, visit nearby establishments and tackle challenges.

Brett Steinfeld, 19, a student at the University of Florida and lifetime Westchase resident, created the event after he lost both grandfathers to cancer. The past five races have raised over $30,000 for the American Cancer Society and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

The event is a significant undertaking, supported by over 50 volunteers, business sponsorships and lots of hard work by Brett and his family. In addition to participating teams, Brett is also looking for volunteers and local businesses who would like to help with the race. If you are interested in being a part of the race in any capacity, please contact Brett at brettsteinfeld@yahoo.com.

This year's events will feature challenges that will require participants to find their way to 12 secret locations based upon clues developed by Brett and his father, Steven Steinfeld. Teams will consist of three to six individuals and can participate in either a car division or bike division. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams in each division. Winners receive a trophy, gifts from the event sponsors and bragging rights!

Registration fees are $30 per person. One hundred percent of the registration fees are tax deductible as you will make your check out directly to the American Cancer Society or the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. All youth participants will receive volunteer hours for participating as well.

Or you can send an email to Brett at brettsteinfeld@yahoo.com and he will send you information and the link to registration right away.

See you on May 21!
