The Land Conservancy of Adams County will hold its annual Fall Classic Road Rally fundraiser this year on Saturday, Oct. 17—with several coronavirus-related adaptations.
In acknowledgement of the nonprofit land trust’s quarter-century of work in Adams County, this year’s Road Rally theme is “25 Years of Preservation in Adams County.” The route will highlight some of most dramatic and scenic land preserved since the conservancy’s founding in 1995.
In response to the nation’s continuing struggle with the coronavirus pandemic, the annual fundraiser has been redesigned to make it safe for all attendees and volunteers: Fewer stops will allow teams to complete the course without having to use a restroom (though restrooms will still be available), and fewer hands-on activities will reduce the need for volunteers at the stops and eliminate team touches and handling. All CDC-recommended social distancing protocols will be in place.
The Land Conservancy of Adams County is also offering a Drive-at-Will Rally alternative for those who cannot attend on Oct. 17 or may be uncomfortable with the normal Rally format. Teams will drive the route at their convenience with a deadline to submit answer sheets by Nov. 1 to be considered for prizes. Team and sponsor registration forms are available at PreserveAdams.org/road-rally.
Again this year, teams can drive for free by signing up one Road Rally sponsor. For more information, visit PreserveAdams.org/road-rally.
