Aug 23 Adventure Car Rally 2017 STARTING LOCATION TO BE ADVISED, London, ON Fees: $30.00 Organizer: Insurance Institute 6th Annual Adventure Car Rally. Lots of fun, lots of laughs – an experience you'll never forget!

The theme for our rally this year centres on Canada's big birthday, so dress up accordingly (be as creative as you like - hockey jerseys, maple leaves, etc.) The Car Rally is a different kind of networking event that will be a little unpredictable and a whole lot of fun while raising funds for the John E. Lowes Insurance Education Fund. The fund benefits students of the local college insurance business programs across Ontario (including Fanshawe College's Insurance Business Program).

Find some friends, grab a car and come out and see if you can follow the clues, answer the trivia and find your way to the final destination. Please be advised there will be a "walking tour" segment of the rally this year, so wear comfortable footwear. This is not a race but it will be an adventure!

Cost: $30.00 per team member (incl. tax) - appetizers/bar snacks are including at our our final destination.
