I. WHAT IS THE AMAZING MEALS ON WHEELS RACE?
This is a fundraising event inspired by the television show, “The Amazing Race”. 15 teams of 2-3 people will compete in a scavenger hunt style race across Erath County, solving clues and completing challenges. The team finishing the race with the highest number of points will be the winner. This is not your typical race so you do not have to be in great physical shape, challenges are designed to test your teamwork and brain power.
The race starts and finishes at the HEARSAY WINE BAR, 270 W. College Stephenville, Texas. The parts of the race will be live streamed as teams compete, thanks to FLIGHT REACH PRODUCTIONS, so bring your family and friends to hangout at THE HEARSAY during the race.
WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL HAVE A CASH PRIZE AND A TROPHY FOR THE WINNING TEAM!

IV. WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
All proceeds from the event goes direct to Meals on Wheels of Erath County, Texas. Each day approximately 165 hot, nutritious meals are served to elderly homebound clients by a team of community volunteers. All of our meals offer complex carbohydrates, nutrient-packed vegetables, and healthy proteins. The interaction with volunteers provides participants with an increase in feelings of safety, and reduces feelings of loneliness and isolation among those living alone. Your support helps ensure that every senior citizen in Erath County who needs a meal gets one!
