On Thin Ice: The MiteY Race International Edition, Tuesday, August 1, 5:30—7:00 p.m.

MiteY RaceThe MiteY Race is modeled after the hit television series “The Amazing Race” in which teams of two people race around the world in competition with other teams. In our ITE version of this program, teams follow clues to “pit stops” where they must complete challenging but fun tasks. To date, the Western District has hosted seven MiteY Race events at Western District Annual Meetings and last year we introduced our event to the rest of the Districts at the inaugural MiteY Race International Edition event was such a hit that we have been invited to bring an additional installment of the race to Toronto. The theme of the 2nd edition of the MiteY Race International Edition is themed “On Thin Ice.” Teams will race through a number of “pit stops” located around the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel with the first team to cross the finish line declared the winner. The Western District is proud to share one of the events that has become a tradition for us and hope you find it as fun and exciting as we have! Register at
