The MFEE Amazing Fundracer is BACK for the 5th time, and the QUINTessential Race is one you won’t want to miss.

The MFEE Amazing FundRACER is a mini-version of the competition show Amazing Race - minus the $1 million prize and the worldwide travel. Our version is just as exciting and more impactful. The funds raised from this community event benefit all 6,000 Montclair Public School students!
 

 

Check out these recaps of the last two races!

We have returned to our original Amazing FundRACER format with teams of 2 on bikes, racing around town to complete AMAZING challenges at a series of undisclosed “Challenge Stations.”

 

Teams earn clues that point them to the next stop, facing elimination as the race progresses. The event builds to a climactic final challenge between the top four teams and an exciting (modified) sprint to the finish line.

How does it work?

Find a partner and sign up to race. (You must be 18 years old (or a senior at MHS) to race.)

Once we set up your Team Page, ask friends, family, co-workers (anyone, really) to sponsor your team. Your challenge: raise at least $750!

Sunday, May 19, rain or shine, race against other teams to complete Challenge Stations and be the first to cross the finish line!

Amazing FundRACER FAQs

How do I enter the race? Find a friend/partner and get ready to have some fun together! Tap your neighbor, your coworker, or your family!  Fill out the short registration form. We’ll follow up to help you create a team name, craft a team story, and to collect a team photo.

How athletic do I need to be to participate? This is a test of wits, good humor, and patience more than athleticism. It’s not a Spartan race. You do have to get from point to point on a bike, and you will have to navigate through challenges quickly, but many tasks will tap into a team member’s memory skills or another member’s creativity. Lack of athleticism is not a barrier. Hint: diversity is your secret weapon.

What do I need for the race? Each racer will need a bike and a helmet. Your team will also need to raise $750.00 to qualify. And of course, a little bit of competitiveness and a sense of humor are also helpful!

How do we raise the $750? Your team will have its own web page where you can collect online donations. MFEE creates the pages, and we “market” the teams to the broader community. Your first race challenge is to get the word out to your friends and family to support your team! Our teams consistently blow us away with their ability to raise significant funds for our schools. Worried you don’t know enough people to raise $750? MFEE will make sure each team gets the love they deserve!

What if my team raises more than $750? You earn coveted LegUPs! For every additional $125 that you raise, you’ll get a LegUP - a special coin that buys you a clue, an advantage, or an opportunity to gently sabotage another team in the race. While you can’t buy your way to victory, a few LegUPs can give teams a nice boost!

Do I need to be a resident of Montclair? NO! We welcome anyone who’s ready to have a great time and raise funds for our schools.

Can my company match donations? Absolutely! MFEE is registered with multiple matching platforms, and company matches can be counted as part of your team donations.

Will every team that enters be allowed to race? The first 50 teams that enter and raise $750 will be on the roster! Let’s go!
