News in Brief: Great Davis Race to raise money for earthquake victims in Japan

This Saturday, members of the Davis community are invited to participate in the first annual Great Davis Race, a scavenger hunt throughout the city. Revenue made from the event will be sent to the Japan Red Cross Society and will go toward aid for victims of the recent earthquake.

The fastest eight-person, five-to-seven person and two-to-four person teams will receive a cash prize. Student groups can enter for a chance to have the cash prize go toward their organizations.

Registration for the event begins at 10 a.m. in Central Park and the race will begin at 11 a.m. The entry fee is $20 per person up to a group of four, and $10 per person for larger groups.

While the Great Davis Race coincides with Relay for Life, race organizer Lamar Heystek encourages people to participate in both events.
