'Race Against Poverty' Next Month

Posted: Updated:

It's a race to help people find their way out of poverty.

Aaron Naklik of the Jefferson Leadership Institute's class of 2017 explained the Race Against Poverty is modeled after the CBS show "The Amazing Race."

Watch the video for his interview on 7 News This Morning.

Clues lead participants to local businesses where they have to perform a task in order to get their next clue.

It starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 9 at the J.B. Wise Pavilion in Watertown.

Registration is at 9:30 a.m.

It costs $50 per team of two.

You can register at eventbrite.com.

The proceeds benefit “Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-by World,” a program offered by the Community Action Planning Council, the Watertown Urban Mission and the Volunteer Transportation Center.

The program encourages participants to build resources and create a plan for getting out of poverty.
