Sign up for Stocked Cart Race

Rev up your engines for the annual VLPRA Stocked Cart Race: a food-raiser for Hungry at Home.  Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks and Recreation Authority is inviting your organization to create a team of four people who will bring food donations, decorate a shopping cart, and drag race it against other teams on November 3rd.

Teams can enter by bringing at least $25 worth of food to the event; more is better!  
Each team will then be given a cart and time to decorate that cart in whatever theme the team chooses.  Then the teams will be matched up in head-to-head drag races to see who can push the fastest cart.  Check in begins at 9:00 AM on November 3rd in the Lowes side parking lot on St. Augustine Road (behind Zaxbys).  Racing starts at 10:00 AM.  We will NOT accept money- only food that Lowes will donate to  "Hungry at Home".  HAH hands out food on Fridays to kids in our schools who don't have enough to eat on the weekends. (www.hungryathome.org).  

Please donate food that a child can cook without adult assistance.  Think: pop top Chef Boyardee meals, granola bars, oatmeal packets, pop top tuna kits, vienna sausages, raisins, etc.


THINGS TO REMEMBER:
-Get with your business or friends and create a team
-Gather food to donate
-Create a "Team Theme" and gather your decorations.
-Show up to the race on 11/3 at 9AM.  You have one hour to decorate your cart
