MFEE: Sign Up for the Amazing FundRACEr, May 21


MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair residents are gearing up for the Amazing FundRACEr - The Sequel that will take place on May 21.

Last year was the first time that teams collaborated to race through Montclair to raise funds for Montclair Schools. Hosted by the MFEE, teams that sign up to participate, will need to raise $500 to compete, and for every $125 above that, they will earn "LegUPs" - little boosts of assistance or ways to (gently) sabotage the other teams.

Last year, over $85,000 was raised to benefit Montclair Public Schools. This year, the goal is to exceed that amount.
