Reality Rally is a four hour “Amazing Race” kind of game, where participants will be walking (or running) throughout Temecula’s Old Town in a competition involving crazy activities and fun challenges for all ability levels, all for the coveted prize (trophy) and bragging rights but most importantly raising funds for Michelle’s Place Breast Cancer Resource Center.

”I thought my excitement could never be matched when I made it on Survivor after eight years of trying. I am equally, if not more, excited to bring back the second year of Reality Rally which after last year’s success is being touted as the Premier Reality Fundraising event in the nation,” says event founder Gillian Larson who was a contestant on Survivor:

Over 80 reality stars have already committed to participate in this year’s Reality Rally Temecula Valley including: Richard Hatch (Winner of the first Survivor and participant in Survivor: All-Stars), Dawn Meehan (Survivor: South Pacific), Papa Bear Caruso (Survivor: South Pacific), Adam Poch (Big Brother), Elise Wims (Hell’s Kitchen) and many others.

Teams consist of three members of the general public and a Reality Star added to make a team of four. Registration is $90.00 PER racer until April 8th or when all teams are filled whichever comes first. Only eighty teams will play and spots are filling up quickly.

Not only are all of the Reality Stars in attendance donating their time, this year they are required to raise $400 (the cost of a mammogram) minimum to be part of the event. The Reality Stars are raising “Money For Mammograms” and all the other services that Michelle’s Place offers to women suffering from breast cancer.

The three day Fun for Funds event will take place from April 13th – 15th. The Reality Rally competition is on April 14th, 2012 and the public will be able to not only watch the competitors as they complete the over 12 challenges but also have the opportunity to participate in many of the activities surrounding the event such as the Reality-Am Golf Tournament the Celebrity Reception with the Stars at Wilson Creek Winery, the Red Carpet Extravaganza and Rally Pit Party at Monte De Oro Winery, and the family Breakfast with the Stars at The Legends Golf Club at Temeku Hills.

There will also be autograph signings, “pawtograph” signings (from celebrity dog stars) and much more to enjoy. Event times, tickets and information can all be found at where updates will be posted regularly.

All proceeds of 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 tender 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. For more information regarding Michelle’s Place please visit
