Help The Plaid Dads Compete in The Amazing FundRACER!

Ben Greenberg and Dave Placek are more than just dads. They're rad. They're bad. And they're dressed in plaid!

Returning challenger Dave, dad of 3 kids under 7, can't wait to compete in this year's Amazing FundRACER as a totally willing and excited participant even though his wife, Bridget, is one of the event's most fervent and enthusiastic supporters who highly suggested he attempt another reach at the crown. Ben, dad of 2, may be new to Montclair but is no stranger to winning. He will bring his quick wit, long reach and uncanny ability to remain cool in the face of whatever this course throws his way. As husband to Steph, yet another fervent supporter of MFEE and this race, he too decided to compete entirely of his own accord.

This laidback duo may seem too nice to take it all, but these suburban dads are in it to win it. Their wives told them so.

Help The Plaid Dads raise the minimum of $500 to compete! For every additional $125 that they raise, they’ll get a LegUP -- a special coin that buys a clue, an advantage, or an opportunity to gently sabotage another team in the race.  While teams can’t buy their way to victory, a few LegUPs can give teams a nice boost!

We have raised $2,035.00 of our $500.00  goal.
