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.

2018 Highlights:

  • $17,000 raised for the Heart of Illinois United Way Community Impact Fund
  • 19 teams with many embracing our theme: "Tacky Prom"
  • More than $2,000 in donated prizes
  • Upwards of 40 amazing volunteers
