MiteY Race at the Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ

Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Blog |

Join us in Phoenix, AZ on July 13th from 4-6 PM for the next installment of the MiteY Race. This year’s MiteY race is presented in conjunction with the 2013 Western District Annual Meeting as a fundraiser for the Student Endowment Fund. The MiteY Race is modeled after the hit television series “The Amazing Race” with teams followed clues and completing challenging but fun tasks. Teams raced around San Francisco landmarks in 2010 and along the Santa Barbara waterfront in 2012. This year’s MiteY Race is themed the “Jewel of the Desert” and is again being held on the Saturday preceding the Annual Meeting. In deference to the Phoenix climate, the Endowment Fund Committee has modified the format of the race this year. Student and family/friends teams will complete challenging but fun tasks to solve a mystery at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. To get everyone in the spirit of the race, we’ve included a photo hint for the upcoming race. For information or to register for 2013 MiteY Race, visit our website at http://westernite.org/endowment-fund-2/mitey-race-2013/.
