The Amazing Chase is a TECH team adventure race spotlighting the Sebago Lakes Region. This beautiful area of Maine, unfortunately, also includes many people who are food insecure.
Help us help these people by supporting our Feed the Need initiative. Join us in Eliminating Hunger in the Sebago Lakes Region!
We are asking each individual who registers for the Amazing Chase to raise $50 through our crowd funding platform for Feed the Need. It’s as simple as sharing a link with your family and friends – click the button below and share the link with your team! AND if your team raises $200 ($50/player) before the event, you will start the race with 500 bonus points!
We will have a check ceremony at the after party after The Amazing Chase to present the monies raised to our food pantry representatives.
Organized by the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, Feed the Need is a fundraising initiative focused on eliminating hunger in our 10 town community.
These towns include: Casco, Gray, Limington, Limerick, Naples, New Gloucester, Raymond, Sebago, Standish, and Windham, Maine.
With generous business sponsors and volunteers from all over the region, our initiative has raised over $85,000 over the past 3 years. 100% of the proceeds raised are divided amongst the 13 food pantries that serve our 10 towns.
Hunger and food insecurity is much more common in our communities than most people realize. In Maine, 1 in 4 children often go hungry, not getting the good meals that they need.
Often, our local food pantries are the last chance many families have at getting enough food.
The funds given to these food pantries goes a long way to providing for these families which may be your neighbors. The foods that the food pantries are able to buy cost only about 16 cents per pound.
Approximately $1.00 can provide enough food for a family of 4 for one day!
