ABOUT RC FEST
My name is Adam Munds with RC Fest, which is a radio controlled event for the importance of donating blood. When I was born I had dangerously low platelet counts and needed a blood transfusion to sustain life. At ten I decided to give back and created the event known as RC Fest. All the proceeds went to Community Blood Services of Illinois; then in our second year we added the blood drive. Over the next six years we raised just under $12,000 and enough blood donations to save over 500 people.
In 2013 I jumped the bloodmobile to start RC Fest which won me the award in 2014 for Most Innovative Blood Coordinator in the state. On average we had 150 competitors and over 500 spectators. In 2016 I stepped down as event coordinator to focus on school. I am excited to announce my return as coordinator for RC Fest 2020 for its ten year anniversary.
This will not be your usual bash; we will have events for every type of surface, vehicle, and skill level. Our two day event will include: half mile Rally Course, Tank Trap Trail Competition, Golden Snitch, Freestyle, and many more.
The best part is attendance and participation is 100% free at RC Fest. The event is located at a new facility, East Side Park in Tolono, Illinois. We transform the park into an RC Playground for one weekend. This year the event is August 8th and 9th.
