What exactly is the Mad Dash?

Inspired by the hit show The Amazing Race, the GEN U Mad Dash is a race against the clock for teams of 2-4 people to complete as many diverse challenges as possible within the given time. Teams compete for a variety of prizes, and all funds raised benefit the Heart of Illinois United Way Community Impact Fund.
