The Au Pair Amazing Race Philadelphia 2012 will be held Saturday, May 19th from 12 to 3:00 pm, with registration beginning promptly at noon.  Au pairs will gather at Love Park (JFK Plaza) in Center City with their teams to begin the race.

Watch some highlights of last year’s Au Pair Amazing Race:

The event will be held rain or shine!

Au pairs will need to pre-register with their LCCs and there will be a registration fee of $5, a portion of which will go to Cultural Care Kids First Foundation, our own non-profit charitable organization dedicated to helping children around the world.

The team to win FIRST PLACE gets a trip to Boston (cost of hostel accommodations, bus fare and spending money), as well as a 25% discount (a $200 value) off the price of a trip to the West Coast, courtesy of Au Pair Adventures. Second and third place finishers will receive gift cards and there will also be a “Wild Card” drawing for all other teams who successfully complete the race!

Not only is the Au Pair Amazing Race a great way to learn about the City of Brotherly Love, but it also teaches the American ideal of “giving back.”  We want to do all we can to help raise money for Cultural Care Kids First Foundation, and we hope that participating au pairs will help too.  Each au pair should have received a Kids First Sponsorship Form.  With this form, au pairs can raise additional funds for Kids First by asking members of their community to “sponsor” their participation in the race – very similar to what is done for a charity 5K run or walk-a-thon.  This is completely optional – however, there are HUGE advantages to completing this first pre-race challenge.  The first advantage is that au pairs can earn a “Fast Pass” for their team.  A “Fast Pass” will allow that team to skip a certain challenge during the race – which can get them in the lead!  The second advantage is that we are offering a HUGE prize to the au pair who raises the most money!  The au pair who raises the most money for Kids First prior to the Au Pair Amazing Race will win a FREE TRIP to the West Coast, courtesy of Au Pair Adventures!!!  The trip is valued at $800 and can be FREE just by doing a good deed and helping us to help Kids First.
