Lakeshore Foundation’s annual Amazing Race event challenges teams of 4 to complete challenges across their 45-acre campus to raise support for those with disabilities.

The challenges are specifically designed to build awareness of the capabilities of people with physical disabilities and to promote the programs and resources available to community members at Lakeshore.

Contestants experience what it’s like to live with a disability by completing challenges either in a wheelchair or with an arm or hand immobilized.

This event is not only a great way to raise money for the Lakeshore Foundation’s amazing programs, but also a great way to bring awareness to an issue that often goes unnoticed.
