22 teams participated in the first Amazing Race – Lighthouse Edition and challenged their friends, family and co-workers to pledge towards their team. Over a dozen mini-challenges through out the downtown encouraged teams to work together and learn about various organization and non-profits in downtown Saskatoon.

Our 30 volunteers came with their enthusiasm and community-spirit. A great thank you goes to you as well!
We could not have done this without various host locations around downtown Saskatoon including Persephone Theatre, the Saskatoon Food Bank, the Clothing Depot, Freedom Functional Fitness, the Downtown Firehall, and Booster Juice in Midtown Plaza. Their willingness to have 45 people compete in their facility was greatly appreciated.
Our sponsors donated prizes, in-kind and monetary donations. Community partners are what allow us to put on events like this.
Team Divorce Divas raised the most amount of funds and received two tickets to anywhere WestJet flies. Our winning team of the competition was Team Tatlow from PA, followed closely by Team Extreme and Team SBC Recess Guardians.
All funds raise are going towards the Lighthouse Mobile Outreach which transports individuals in need of emergency shelter. Winter will soon be upon us and a safe, warm place because life saving to those we serve. Thank you so much for your support!!
