Danville Amazing Race
The Danville Youth Council hosted its first-ever Danville Amazing Race on Saturday, March 24, 2018! 18 teams of middle and high school students participated in various activities throughout the town at 10 different stops. It was a lively day in Downtown as teams entered the Town Hall dressed in spirit wear, ready to take on the challenge. The tasks included trivia about the Veteran’s Memorial Building, completing an intense workout, creating an improvised skit in 10 seconds, eating the grossest jelly bean flavors, and more. DYC members led each station amongst the chaos of all 18 teams motivated to come out on top. At the end of the race, DYC members tallied the winner based on the first to finish as well as points per stop. Team Dynamite won first place, receiving a basket of Amazing Race gear and a Starbucks gift certificates.
