The Random Acts of Fun Scavenger Hunt is set to happen

Random Acts of Fun – a scavenger hunt – is due to take place September 10-20 to raise funds for the Community Partnership on Aging.

The fundraiser is organized through Goosechase, an online platform and app that connects organizations, schools and people to participate in fun and interactive challenges through daily missions. Admission is $35 per person and can be accessed through their link or QR code located on their website.

All proceeds will go to Community Partnership on Aging programs.

The registration fee will also earn each participant a registration bag and a T-shirt. The first 75 people who register will also receive a free sandwich coupon for Chick-Fil-a.

The event will have a kick-off booth on September 10 during the Lyndhurst House Day celebration at 5301 Mayfield Road, where people can pick up registration packs, and volunteers will help attendees set up and navigate in the Goosechase app. Those who visit the table will receive points just for visiting their table.

The event spans Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Richmond Heights and South Euclid and is sponsored by Richmond Heights Place, NOPEC, One South Euclid and Avenue Care and Rehabilitation Center.

People can sign up as a team or as an individual participant to complete each challenge, with some requiring them to go out into the world to find select things and others that can be completed at the resident’s home.

Each day of the event, participants will be invited to participate in scavenger hunt challenges that require the user to submit photos of them completing tasks.

Players can play to socialize or compete to win prizes. Each challenge has a number of points ranging from 1 to 100 points. Whether as a team or solo, you can complete challenges to win prizes and help raise awareness of the Community Partnership on Aging.

The event encourages companies to participate with a corporate team as a way to boost staff morale.

“We wanted something that people could still experience together, but safely, have fun while raising money for our programs and services at the same time. said Therese Grida, Development Coordinator at Community Development on Aging. “There are really fun challenges like word puzzles you need to decipher the theme of our programs, or make a pirate hat out of newspaper, take a picture of yourself playing Guitar Hero.”
