Dear editor, The Town of Halton Hills' hosted it's very own `Race for the Hills' on Saturday October 14, a spin on the popular TV series Amazing Race. Race for the Hills invited adults in teams of three to scour the community for clues and endure physical challenges-- manoeuvring through checkpoints, detours, roadblocks, and pit stops, testing not only their physical but also their mental abilities. In total, 23 teams, (69 participants), participated in this fun-filled race and everyone went home a winner, despite the rain, sleet and cold temperatures. The event's success was due in large part by the enthusiasm of those who participated, the volunteers who so graciously dedicated their time and efforts to the race and also all the corporate supporters who donated prizes and giveaways. Corporate sponsors included, Feet in Motion, Young's Pharmacy & Homecare, Eagle Ridge Golf Club, Silvercreek Café, Power Zone Fitness, Ontario Triathlon Association, McDonald's (Georgetown), Frito Lay Canada, SunOpta Canadian Food Distribution Group and Laidlaw Education Services. Race for the Hills was hosted by the Town as an initiative to support and provide active living opportunities in Halton Hills. Continue to look for more information on active living programs and services by visiting the Town's website at www.haltonhills.ca or by calling 905-873-2601 ext. 2262.
