BACKBONES PDX Scavenger Hunt
Sunday, September 9, 2012 at 11:00 AM (PDT)
Build a team of 3-5 people and register. YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW YOUR TEAM NAME TO REGISTER. Up to 5 people are allowed to register under one team. Children under the age of 15 must register with their parent or guardian.
At least 1-2 people must use a wheelchair at ALL times during the hunt. If you do not use a wheelchair as part of your day to day life, we will find you one and loan it to you. Be nice to the wheelchair, it’s not yours!
Dress comfortably! Wear comfy shoes and your good underwear, this hunt will last more than an hour.
Document all your moves! You can bring just about anything: computer, GPS, compass, maps, money, public transit day pass. No rollerblades or skateboards- Just wheelchairs!
How ‘bout some extra credit? Teams may receive extra points for partaking in fundraising prior to the hunt. For every $50 raised you get extra points. Funds raised must be turned in prior to the hunt starting. Visit www.BACKBONESONLINE.com for the donation form you can use.
Prizes. Want to win the PRIZE BAG? Well then, get the job done and do it fast so we can count up your points. If you come back with a sad number of points, don’t be discouraged… There will be amazing Underdog Awards- but you gotta earn it!
After-Party. You may be thirsty and you may be hungry, so we’re going to feed you! Stick around for some pizza and drinks. This will be a time to share stories of your hunt and reflect on what you’ve learned.
