The Race

What is the Queen City Stampede?

Looking for a fun way to get exercise, test your problem-solving capabilities, spend time with family and friends, and create lasting memories? We have the event for you! Have you ever seen the show The Amazing Race? Holy Cross Family Learning Center is bringing this concept to Manchester with an event called the Queen City Stampede!

On September 21st, 200 teams comprised of two individuals each will be canvassing the City of Manchester, visiting local businesses, community jewels and historical highlights all while solving clues and completing challenges. The best part about it: we are designing the event to be family-oriented – kids 8 years old and over can even participate on a team with an adult! Doesn’t it sound like a fun, exciting and *amazing* event?

Proceeds to Benefit Holy Cross Family Learning Center

Holy Cross Family Learning Center (HCFLC) is a place where people of diverse cultures from Manchester, New Hampshire come together to initiate or to continue their education. As part of this learning, they participate in helping to develop the Center as a place where family values are strengthened, community building is fostered, literacy is nourished, academic performance is raised, and diversity respected and celebrated. HCFLC seeks to respond to the needs of the growing immigrant and refugee population of the Greater Manchester area, especially on Manchester’s West Side.

A grant-driven program, Holy Cross Family Learning Center has historically relied on the generosity and support of the Sisters of Holy Cross, benefactors, monetary gifts, and in-kind donations. However, the needs of our local population have outgrown these support sources. While considering our options for a sustainable, long-term solution, the idea to develop a signature event was born. After exhaustive research and comprehensive discussion, Holy Cross Family Learning Center has partnered with the Urban Stampede to present the Queen City Stampede’s inaugural event in 2013!

Holy Cross Family Learning Center is excited to offer a family-oriented event which showcases our grand city and everything that it offers. Won’t you join us for an amazing day?
