Amazing Oshkosh

MVMEC will once again be a stop for this family friendly event.

 
Like the popular TV show, Amazing Oshkosh Kiwanis Quest race gives teams of four an all-access pass as they race around our great city of Oshkosh. Teams follow clues to reach checkpoints, where they complete all sorts of task before moving on to the next location.
 
The tasks can be mental, like assembling a puzzle, or physical, like performing a choreographed dance. Sometimes tasks are downright thrilling while others are just plain fun, like bouncing across a field inside a giant inflatable ball.
 
All money raised by Amazing Oshkosh Kiwanis Quest will stay local to help and encourage our child, the future of our great community.
