IT&E hosted the third annual Race for Life fundraiser at Micro Beach Pavilion on Saturday.

The Mario Kart-themed event counted ten participating teams: BBJ Athletics, Explorers, ITS Corp, Koopalings, Marianas Variety, Saipan Paddling Club, Saipan Tribune, Team Marpac, TRAC Team, and Weekend Thang.

Teams had the option of going to the north or south side of the island for the scavenger hunt. Most of the teams headed north to Paupau Beach, Wing Beach, and Banzai Cliff.

Once at the site, the teams had to search the location for a hidden sign that had a QR code. Team captains scanned the QR code, which gave them a hint or an optional challenge.

After reaching their final location, the teams were given a final hint that would lead them to a site with their final object: the golden mushroom. Once that was found, teams would have to take a group photo, then rush back to the Micro Beach Pavilion for the final challenge.

When the 10 teams returned to the pavilion, they were given an opportunity to spin a wheel that would allow them to add more time to their opposing teams’ unofficial times.

In the end, TRAC Team came in first, winning various prizes, including brand new Fitbits. Saipan Paddling Club placed second while Marianas Variety took third place.

TRAC also won Best Team Spirit Award for its Mario Kart-themed team uniforms and team vehicle.

The IT&E 3rd Annual Race for Life fundraising event was sponsored by 3A’s Polyshine, Chong’s Corp, Coca-Cola, Elliot Systems, HBR, Hyatt Regency Saipan, ITS Corp, Kanoa Resort Saipan, Kensington Hotel, Marpac Home & Family, Marianas Variety News & Views, McDonald’s, Pacific Amusement, Saipan Tribune, Team Bodig, TRAC, Triple J, and WSTCO.
