Fireball Run Adventurally makes stop in Clarksville on September 29th

 

Community Encouraged To Come Out and Show Support

2011 Fireball Run AdventurallyClarksville, TN – The 2011 Fireball Run Adventurally will kick off their 2,500 mile excursion in Melbourne, FL this weekend. The cars will be rolling into Public Square, Downtown Clarksville, the afternoon of September 29th.

As soon as they make their initial stop in Clarksville, the around-town scavenger hunt will begin with all teams heading out to Beachaven Winery. From there, the teams will search out their first clue and then be off to the next local spot. During their stay here, don’t be surprised if you see some high-dollar foreign cars or even the Mayberry police car rolling around town.

This year, the race also includes a special 2011 Chevrolet Camaro “First Responders Memorial” vehicle. It is covered with the names of over one-thousand first responders that lost their lives on and since the September 11th attacks. Several of the teams in the Adventurally are comprised of  members of  law enforcement and military veterans.

After a high-energy afternoon of collecting clues, the teams will (safely) race to the finish line at public square. That’s where we need the community to come out and show your support of the Adventurally.

Make your way down to Public Square around 4:00pm on September 29th to see the cars as they begin to cross the finish line. There, you will have the opportunity to meet the drivers, see the cars and possibly be a part of the Fireball Run movie. The more community support, the more air time Clarksville could have in the movie. What a great way to show off all the City has to offer!

If you can’t make it on Thursday, you haven’t missed your chance to see the cars. The next day, September 30th, the cars will be lined up at 9:00am, also at Public Square, to take off to their next destination. Mayor McMillan will be waving the green flag and the Clarksville Police will be escorting the cars out of town. From there, the teams will be off to Anniston, AL for the next round of the scavenger hunt.

Established in 2005, the Fireball Run aids in the recovery of America’s missing children. Since the inception of the race, 35 children have been found. This year, the participants of the Fireball Run will also be helping out the local F.U.E.L. program by donating food items. These donations will ensure that Clarksville’s needy school children will have food at home over the weekends.

Along with the local charity here, the cast of the Adventurally make an impact at every city they visit. According to their site, www.firballrun.com, “Fireballers have donated over $20,000 in toys to various children’s hospitals, over 6,000 books to a Mayors Pre-K initiative and 12 lap top computers and a new computer lab to a Boys and Girls Club.”
