The 2014 Great Lake Chase To Raise Money For Lifespan

Lake Norman Road Rally To Raise Money For Developmentally and Intellectually Disabled
Car enthusiasts and fun-seekers, are you ready for a road rally that will also do good?

The Great Lake Chase Road Rally is scheduled for Sunday, May 18, 1-5 p.m., along Lake Norman. The event will raise money for LIFESPAN Inc., a nonprofit that empowers children and adults with developmental disabilities. Up to 50 driving teams in new and classic cars will compete in a “scavenger hunt on wheels” around Lake Norman. Rally participants will encounter “Amazing Race”-style challenges and get clues along the route.

Leigh Derby, LIFESPAN founder, and Jan Skinner, LIFESPAN board member, teamed up to coordinate The Great Lake Chase Road Rally. The title sponsor is Randy Marion Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC, Isuzu, and Subaru.

“Whether you’re a driving enthusiast, or you enjoy team games and sports, or solving riddles, or just looking for something very different to do on a Sunday afternoon, this event is for you!” said Derby.
Each car will have a driver and up to three passengers to assist in navigation, help answer trivia questions, participate in activities, or simply cheer on the driver. Three judges, including Jennifer Marion, will select the winning teams. Teams will be judged on time between checkpoints, highest score on trivia questions, points scored on activities, “coolness” of the car and extra points awarded by judges.

“This is all about raising money in a BIG FUN way,” said Derby. “We want you to have fun, be creative, and impress the judges. You’ll score more points!”
The Great Lake Chase Road Rally culminates with an awards celebration featuring a BBQ dinner and music by Wood Family Tradition, a bluegrass/gospel group.

Volunteers are needed to help with the checkpoints, the activities, photography/videography, and the awards celebration.
