Beyond the Backyard,  a new Habitat Challenge
Saturday, September 26, 2020

It’s a unique fundraiser – part scavenger hunt and part double-dog-dare.

Suited for all ages and stages, Beyond the Backyard, is made for fun-seekers and competitors of all ability levels. In this family-friendly, COVID-safe adventure race, teams complete 24 challenges in the categories of  PHYSICAL, FIND, SKILL and FUN.

Curious how it works? Check out our FAQs.


Beyond the Backyard is a fundraiser designed for these times, as the competition is run in your community. There’s no gathering. It’s just you, your team, and the space around you. You can contain it to your immediate family and your own block, or expand out to include some close friends and your city. It’s all up to you and your comfort level.

Race entry is $25/ person and each team has a collective fundraising goal of $300. But we make it easy with a user-friendly online platform for you to collect donations and track your progress. And entry fees, which include an event t-shirt and use of the race app, are also applied toward your goal. If you have a team of 4 register, you’re aleady 1/3 of the way there!

Every dollar you raise helps open the door to a family’s first home – providing the opportunity for an affordable mortgage and stability.
