adventure race 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/24/13) – Offering participants a fun and eventful experience while raising funds for a good cause are the inspiration for the Independence Bank Adventure Race Aug. 10.
 
The adventures are the challenges along the way for teams in four categories - competitive men’s, women's, co-ed and family. The winning team will be awarded $100 by Independence Bank. The funds raised from registration will be used to benefit the Hopkins County Schools Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support program at each county school.
 
The concept of an adventure race in Hopkins County was inspired by participation in a similar event in Nashville, according to PBIS district coach Wendy Watts.
 
"I participated at one in Nashville, and I thought it would be a good fundraiser for PBIS and different than other fundraisers," she said. "It's also a sustainable event."
 
Watts said participants should bring a fully charged Smartphone, a pen or pencil to write down clues and map out chosen routes, a bag or backpack, one canned good for each team member and a signed waiver.
 
Pre-registration at www.hopkins.kyschools.us/AdventureRaceForm is required by Wednesday, July 31. Those participating will compete in both physical and mental challenges. Competitive teams will begin at 8 a.m. at the Hopkins County Judicial Center at 120 E. Center St., Madisonville, and family teams will begin at 8:45.
 
Other activities include free musical entertainment throughout the day with the Other Mother Brothers at 10 a.m., The Reneaus at 11 a.m., and J.T. Oglesby and the Grooms of Mollie McBride at noon. Brother's Bar-B-Que will be donating 10 percent of proceeds from food sales to the PBIS program.
