ODESSA, TX-The Permian Basin had it's own version of the TV show "The Amazing Race.”
The House Of The Sycamore Tree held its first of many fundraisers earlier today, called "The Amazing Permian Basin Challenge."
Competitors were paired up in two and had to complete a number of challenges that were set up through Odessa and Midland.
Participants had to finish each challenge before they received their next clue.
This non-profit group is a vocational training facility for special needs and challenged young adults.
"We take our special needs young adults, not necessarily after high school, but at least towards the end of their high school career, and we start coaching them for possibilities, (and) job skills," said Micah Pettigrew, the President/Founder of House Of The Sycamore.
First, second and third place took home cash prizes.
