Fitchburg, Mass. – United Way Community Builders is sponsoring the region’s most amazing race ever, but with a twist.

Volunteers are wanted for Dash for a Difference, which is being held on April 14. Inspired by “The Amazing Race” television show, the event pits teams of five dashers in a friendly competition, traveling through North Central Massachusetts neighborhoods on a quest to complete community service projects.

Each team will be asked to complete a series of projects during the day. Once they complete tasks, their passport will be stamped and they will receive their clue to the next destination. Team members who are successful will be entered into a grand prize raffle drawing for a seven-day stay at a luxurious waterfront house in Key West, Fl., including airfare.

To participate, team members will raise funds for United Way Community Builders volunteer center prior to the event. To learn more or sign up, visit or call United Way of North Central Massachusetts at 978-345-1577.

United Way Community Builders corporate sponsors include Unitil and Bemis Associates.
