Escape For Good
EVENT DATE: May 23, 2014
On Friday, May 23rd 2014, the most heroic adventurers will gather to Escape for Good. REGISTER TODAY TO JOIN US!
Sponsored by their friends and family, the competitors have 36 hours to get as far away from the start line as possible and raise as much money as they can for charity -- with no cash, no credit cards, nothing but their wits.
Escape for Good is a 36 hour charity race from New Orleans to Detroit with a stop over in Graceland. Contestants join into 50 teams of 2 to compete against each other in getting from New Orleans to Detroit with no money, dressed in costume as their heroes! Fundraising begins the moment teams sign up to Escape for Good via the Crowdrise fundraising platform.
The race starts in NOLA on May 23rd, following a launch party the night before (don’t go to bed too late kids!) Over the course of the 36 hours, the team that gets the most “Escape Miles” (a combination of distance, money raised, mode of transport and a treasure hunt along the way) will win the bonus price for their chosen cause: a massive $25,000 pot which we’re grateful to the Seminole Tribe of Florida for generously donating.
Entry fee: $100 a team. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any enquiries.
Escape is the creative vehicle of experiential agency Escape Productions LLC. Founded in New York City in 2009, Escape recently acquired a new home base in the high desert on the private 40-acre ranch, “Rancho V”, situated in Pioneertown, California. Escape’s Rancho V serves as a hub for musicians, photographers, thought leaders, and pioneers from across the globe, to find their true “escape”, and adopt an efficient and direct course to their goals. Rancho V also hosts recording sessions in its state-of-the studio and photo shoots in its desert retreat locale.
By enabling and empowering a community of artists, inspired entrepreneurs, connectors, altruistic developers and more, Escape is committed to improving the circumstances of others. Escape’s founder Rocco Gardner brought the inaugural Escape to New York festival to New York in 2011 on the Shinnecock Indian Nation Reservation. Since then Escape has hosted similar events in Montauk, NY; Los Angeles, CA whilst developing its Escape for Good race and agency. The organization continues to work with the Native American Tribes, creating immersive, one-of-a-kind experiences and economic development opportunities.
