Richard Hatch, winner of the first "Survivor" reality TV show, and a host of other reality TV stars will compete on teams with local residents this weekend in the 2013 Reality Rally in Temecula.
This year's third annual event has even more aspects to appeal to participants and spectators and to raise funds for its designated charity, Michelle's Place Breast Cancer Resource Center of Temecula.
Reality Rally is a four-hour "Amazing Race" style game, where teams race throughout Old Town Temecula. The competition involves crazy activities and fun challenges, all for the bragging rights. Most important, the event raises funds and community awareness for Michelle’s Place.
Scheduled participants include more than 100 reality stars from over 35 TV shows, including Hatch, Jonathan Novack ("The Bachelorette"), Mike Skupin (runner-up of "Survivor Philippines") and Brendon and Rachel ("Big Brother"). A complete listing of stars and shows can be found at www.realityrally.com.
This three-day event will begin Friday and will continue with Race Day this Saturday, April 6. The weekend is full of events such as the second annual Reality-Am Golf Tournament, held Friday morning at the Pala Mesa Golf Resort; the Celebrity Reception, held Friday night at Wilson Creek Winery; the Reality Rally Red Carpet Celebration, held Saturday night at South Coast Winery; and Breakfast with the Stars on Sunday morning at Pala Mesa Golf Resort.
The general public can watch the participants compete and participate in many of the activities surrounding the event. Event times, tickets and information can all be found on the Reality Rally website.
All net proceeds of the Reality Rally will go to benefit Michelle’s Place, which was founded in 2001 by Marilyn and Bill Watson, parents of Michelle Watson. Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 23 after years of misdiagnosis. It was her dying wish to start a breast cancer resource center where women could go for support and information in Riverside County.
