It's a spectacular dash around Greater Cincinnati that will test your speed, teamwork, problem-solving, trivia knowledge, geographical awareness, and embarrassment threshold. Teams of four people race against each other to complete tasks at various locations around town, and the first group to the finish line gets power*, prestige**, and gloating rights***. (If this reminds you of a certain TV show, you're on the right track.)
It's all for a good cause and takes place on Friday, April 25, 2014. The race ends with a huge party called the AfterScurry where we'll have music, food, and plenty of adult beverages.
* OK, we can't promise any additional power.
** We can promise a little prestige.
*** You definitely get to gloat. Gloat on.
TiER1 Performance Solutions is a company based in Covington, Kentucky that helps organizations improve their performance by improving the performance of their people. We started doing Scurry-like events as a company as a way to get to know each other within TiER1, then turned it into event we could invite our friends to while raising money for a local charity - the Cincinnati Scurry. With learning at the heart of TiER1's mission, we are proud to partner with MLCF and their Learning Is Cool program. (We were also hoping to meet some Bengals, so there's that.)
We all know Coach Lewis through his day job, but he's also a tireless community activist and youth advocate. Marvin and Peggy Lewis founded the Marvin Lewis Community Fund in 2003 to serve and protect the needs of Cincinnati-area children. Since then, the MLCF has created a number of super-cool programs, from Learning Is Cool and scholarship funds to football camps and breast cancer awareness campaigns.
