KEN AND TINA on The Fireball RUN!!
« on: September 23, 2010, 02:34:31 AM »
KEN AND TINA NEED OUR HELP!!


Quote
Just an FYI and to possibly ask from some of your "sleuth skills" and that of your team!
 
We are racing in a road rally called Fireball Run, which is a 9 day, 3500 mile adventurally from Las Vegas to Galena Illinois. It is a version of the Amazing Race, but in cars.  It is sponsored by the Klass Foundation for missing children.  We are representing a 7 year old boy from Portland that has been missing since June. You may have heard about Kyron Horman as he has been on the cover of People magazine, Nancy Grace, and has captured much national news. 

The race begins on the 23rd of this month, finishing on October 2nd.  This event has been responsible for recovering 32 children and we truly hope to help bring Kyron home.  I am attaching more info on the Adventurally;)
 
In keeping with our "Greene Team" theme - We are driving a Smart Car to be Eco-Friendly - minimizing our carbon footprint - and utilizing Sony Eco Green Laptops for solving clues!  This is also an interactive race, so we can use all the help available via our social networks to solve clues progressing to the next location. 
 
Thanks for any publicity and help you and your followers can provide.
 
Warmly,
Tina

WHAT:
IT'S AMAZING RACE MEETS MOTORSPORTS! The journey starts SEPTEMBER 23rd in HENDERSON-LAKE LAS VEGAS Nevada and
finishes 8 days, 18 cities, and 3500 miles later OCTOBER 2nd at the luxurious resort community of GALENA, ILLINOIS!
You are the Pawn and America is the game board. It will take more brain power than horse power to successfully navigate
the country in this part rally, part game, part race. The adventure also incorporates adrenaline charged track competitions
at the following locations:  LAS VEGAS SPEEDWAY Las Vegas, NV;  DODGE CITY RACEWAY Dodge City, KS;
HEARTLAND PARK RACEWAY Topeka, KS; and CORDOVA DRAGWAY Cordova, IL!  The fun has only just begun…
It’s Bentley vs. Lamborghini, Charger vs. Camaro, and Motor Home vs. Movie Car in several motorsport competitions.
Each day ending with an exciting city-wide celebration.   http://www.fireballrun.com/index.php

WHEN: NOW thru OCT 2

Well..here is a quick update as I have to get some much needed sleep;)  We moved up to 1st Place Overall Yesterday and 1st Today for the day and still in 1st Overall!!!!  Can you believe it ...two oldies like us taking on the Lamborghini's, Maserati's, etc. with our cute Smart Car!!!!  Lots of clue solving but very little time to post or ask for help as the clues are on the way driving the 1st half of the day and second.....we beat all the youngsters today up a large hill to a cannon and back down;)  Still praying for Kyron's save return home!!!  Fireball Official's got a great lead for one of our children in Dodge City yesterday.  All the way to Topeka today and off to Chesterfield tomorrow.  Thanks for you wonderful support of the Greene Team!!! XOXOXO, Tina & Kenny
