The Great Llama Race will be a foot race in which local celebrities are paired with a Knoxville school and a llama provided by Southeast Llama Rescue. The race will be run in heats, with the final heat determining 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. The winning schools will win a percentage of funds raised to go to a project of their choice. Southeast Llama Rescue will also receive a percentage of the funds raised, with the remainder of the money going to Casa de Sara, an international non-profit with headquarters in Knoxville. All of Casa de Sara’s proceeds will go to sponsor their elementary school in La Guardia, Bolivia.
Vendors, entertainers, food, music, a children’s section, crafts, games and other competitions will be spread out around the grounds. All these events will be set up as enter-to-win competitions and the winners will take a prize. Schools will have the opportunity to have booths to promote themselves. It will be a funky and fun day for the entire family!
