Thank you for your interest in volunteering for SOAR 2017! 

The Southern Ontario Amazing Race (SOAR) is an event that challenges participants physically and mentally. Have you ever watched the Amazing Race on TV and wished you could experience first hand some of the conflicts, frustration and excitement teams go through as they make their way through the challenges? By signing up as a volunteer, you get the chance to catch all the action, watch the drama unfold and participate in a local event for a good cause that has raised $800,000 for The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.
