What the heck is the Cincinnati Scurry?
The 5th Annual Cincinnati Scurry took place on Friday, April 25th! The event is hosted by Tier1 Performance Solutions in partnership with the Marvin Lewis Community Fund. The Scurry challenges corporations to give back through a fun event based on the television show "The Amazing Race". Corporate teams of 4 people are sent out to scour the city performing various tasks testing their speed, teamwork, problem-solving, trivia and their knowledge of the Greater Cincinnati area.
What happens during that day?
Teams are released at once on a race to complete their tasks the quickest. There is an after party following the race, including music, food, and adult beverages. This is also where the winners will be announced including other fun awards for the day. Past winners of the Scurry include Shick Sales, Fresh Sausage Specialists, Cincinnati Bell and American Modern Insurance Group. Congrats to the American Modern Insurance group who won the 2014 Cincinnati Scurry for the second year in a row!
I can scurry! How do I get involved?
Each participating organization will be able to enter one team of four racers with a minimum donation.
We're trying to spread the fun to more than just those four racers, so there will be opportunities for others to contribute. Group participation is encouraged, from fundraising and outreach opportunities before the race, to special group activities during the race, and of course the final after party to enjoy into the evening.
