Race to Recess


Recess....the best part of the school day, where you took a break, ate lunch & had fun with your friends! This year half way through Field Day your team will get a recess too!


Winning at Adult Field Day is hard work. So we'll give you a break to recharge with recess halfway through the games. A break to eat lunch (pre-order here), recover and strategize on how to win King of the Field! During recess we will also announce the winner of our RACE TO RECESS CHALLENGE.....and your 



This year we are rolling out a NEW (and totally optional) way to compete as a team in FIELD DAY, and it involves helping our RAINDANCERS in a really big way! After all, our Raindancers are the inspiration for Field Day!

New for 2024!

Each year we make sure to add new and fun challenges to Adult Field Day and this year is no different. We have a lot up our sleeves planned for May 18th, but this year, the competition begins NOW! 

This year, we’re raising the bar – not only will you compete with your team to win races, but you can also join the ‘RACE TO RECESS FUNdraising Team Challenge'  and compete as a team to raise money to help SJGF Raindancers! 

SJGF has become the go-to resource for families in our region who have a child that is seriously ill, medically complex or facing a medical crisis.  We are there for families who feel alone and don’t know where to turn. When these families turn to SJGF and ask for help, we say YES!  We are committed to saying yes, over and over again, and now you can help us say yes, by working as a TEAM to raise money for The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation! 

The team that raises the most money during this challenge will not only get bragging rights for doing something REALLY AWESOME they will also receive a super fun & unique GROUP EXPERIENCE curated just for the winning team. AND ......
