Welcome to the official page of the Second Chances Foundation’s annual Need2Succeed (N2S) 5k Obstacle Challenge! This will be an annual race put on to raise funds to battle Cystic Fibrosis. Currently, the Foundation honors Aimee Driscoll and is raising funds for her double lung transplant. Once we have reached that goal, we will continue to function as a foundation and to put on this race to raise awareness of and support for those with Cystic Fibrosis.
This year’s race will be held on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 9:00a.m. at the All Wheels Off Road Park, 50 Old Farm Road, Lewiston, ME 04240. Register before March 31st, and entrance is $35. April 1st – May 16th entrance is $45. Registration day of is $55. Want to compete as a team? Teams of 5 or more receive a $5 discount per person on the entrance fee!
Are you a law enforcement officer, firefighter, EMT, military or other public servant? Well we have a challenge for your! Gather a team and compete against other public servants for a trophy, bragging rights, and the opportunity to defend your title at next year’s race! The winner of our first N2S Public Servant Challenge was the Auburn Fire Department, and we are looking forward to seeing them defend their title!
So what exactly is the N2S? The race will be a 3.2 mile race with 10 to 12 obstacles of varying difficulties. Although the course is designed to be challenging, it is also designed to be fun! This is the only race of its kind in the Twin Cities and brings the community together to help a member of their community. We called the race the Need2Succeed for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Aimee needs us to succeed in our fundraising efforts as she desperately needs a double lung transplant. Secondly , we know that you feel the need to succeed personally, both in life, and, in this instance, in our race. The best part is that, in doing so, you help us to succeed! The first 100 registrants will receive a free t-shirt. Those who are not within the first 100 can order a t-shirt if they register by May 2nd. We will be issuing a Public Servant Challenge for teams such as police departments, EMTs, fire departments, etc. There will be awards for the top 3 finishers Male and Female, the top 3 teams, Top Public Servant teams, and the best costumes. Registration is online. Sign-in day of at registration table is at 7:30am. Packet pick-up will be on site at the race, no earlier pick up.
