St. Joseph Mercy Health System and University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center present: The Cancer Support Community’s 13th Annual Amazing Race, to be held virtually on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at 4 pm.
Join us to test your wits and creativity from the comfort of your home. The Virtual Amazing Race will require the same amount of brainpower and encompass all the laughter and silliness as past years, all without leaving the comfort of your home.
Teams can be composed of people from various locations. Invite friends or family from around the country to be a part of your team or to be your competition. Teams will work together using phones and tablets to solve puzzles and complete activities, all while competing with the other teams in real-time.

An Amazing Race ticket costs $50 and covers the entry of up to four players on your team.
How many people can be on a team?
Teams can be up to four people.
Does my team have to be in the same physical location?
Team members can join for their own homes on up to 4 separate devices.
Example of Teams:
What technology do I need?
Teams will need at least one smartphone or tablet with access to the internet. The free app GooseChase will need to be downloaded on any device used during the Amazing Race. Click here to learn more about downloading the app.
How do I join the game on the day of the race?
At or before 4 pm on Saturday, June 5th, each player should join the game on GooseChase. To join the game, players need to open the app and select play as a guest and input the access code that will be sent to you the week of the event. CSC will create your teams within GooseChase. Once the player has joined the game, they will need to select their team name to start the game. The first mission will drop at 4:15 pm.
How to earn points in the game?
To complete a mission, select it from the list and follow the instructions to receive the allotted points. Sometimes you'll be submitting a photo or video, while other times, you'll be solving a puzzle or riddle.
How do I see how the competition is doing?
The ability to see everything as it happens is one of the best parts of the Virtual Amazing Race. Whenever someone completes a mission, it's added to the activity feed, and the rankings are automatically updated. If you're as competitive as we are, you'll realize how awesome this is! At any given moment, you will know precisely how you're ranking and what needs to be done to win.
What if I need help with the technology?
We promise that this system is very user friendly and easy to follow. That said, we are here to help you! We will have support available before and during the race. See the contact section below for who to reach out for tech support.
