Car Rally

2023 MtS Car Rally

Since Elaine and Peter Selig brought the Car Rally as a third-party fundraising event of the Mission, significant amounts have been raised. The top three winners receive the wooden car trophy handcrafted by Peter.

This year, Amy and Chris Allen organized a successful race notwithstanding the severe rainstorm.


2022 MtS Car Rally

This year’s Annual Car Rally took place on 19 November in support of the Halifax Mission to Seafarers.

It was a perfect mid-November day with 29 teams participating.

The route was along the South Shore–from Chester Basin to White Point.

The participants had a great time. They enjoyed the amazing buffet. A 50/50 draw was held and the winner, Rossana Wilson, gave her half back to the Mission. Held also was a live auction. Race prizes were given to the First, Second, Third, and Last places.

Big THANKS to our sponsor: PSA Terminals!

Kudos to all participants! The 2022 Car Rally was a huge social and financial event!


2021 MtS Car Rally

With so many events cancelled we were delighted to hear that Jacqueline and Ronnie Twohig were keen to host this event in 2020. They plotted the course and arranged a scavenger hunt along the route. Ronnie dropped in with a bag of cash totalling $3500. I am told it was a blast with participants ending up at the Truro Best Western for dinner and an overnight stay. Elaine and Peter Selig started this event in 2017. We thank you for your ingenuity and generosity shining through a pandemic. Event sponsors are Logistec, CBCL Engineering and Canada Steamship Lines. The major prize sponsors are Hotel Halifax, Sutton Place Hotel, Hapag-Lloyd and the Truro Best Western. Without this support, the Car Rally would not happen. The winners were Heather Wozniak and Emily Goss, Team Double Trouble.

To all the participants, Thank You! Well done!
