Runnin' Thru the 6ix is a charity scavenger hunt in the heart of Toronto, with proceeds going to CAMH, the Centre for Mental Health and Addiction. The event will follow with a Raffle and Silent Auction which will be available at the closing ceremony secret location.
Participants will compete in a team of 3 or 4 people to complete a series of tasks. Each team will be given the same list of tasks to complete in a 1.5-hour time frame. Tasks do not need to be done in a specific order, nor do all teams have to choose to do the same tasks. The goal is to complete the most tasks within the list.
The event will kick off with an opening ceremony, held at a secret location within the radius, released a couple of days before the event. Teams will be welcomed, provided with detailed instructions for the hunt, and a countdown to begin.
When each team completes a task, the team captain must take photo or video evidence and upload* it to the Scavify app to keep track of their completed tasks. All team members must be in the photo or video evidence to ensure a fair playing game! Uploads will no longer be accepted after the 1.5-hour mark.
The teams will check back in at the end secret location for a closing ceremony. The top 3 winning teams will be announced and presented with their winning prize during the ceremony. The raffle and silent auction will be available at the closing ceremony secret location, with proceeds going to CAMH.
*Team captain must use personal data rates that apply. Runnin Thru the 6ix is not liable for data charges and does not provide wifi or data for team members. It is the responsibility of the team to use their personal cellular device and personal data to complete the scavenger hunt.
The event will kick off with registration at the corner of Queen West and Gore Vale. Teams will be welcomed, provided with detailed instructions for the hunt, and a countdown to begin. The race will conclude with drinks and our silent auction and raffle at our secret location. Proceeds will go to CAMH!
More about CAMH
ALL of our event proceeds will be supporting The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health who provide a wide range of clinical care services for patients of all ages and families. Please click below to donate to this wonderful resource or to learn more about ways you can help!
This is an important charity for us as one of their locations is just outside of our scavenger hunt radius. Holding an event in this space means recognizing the people who occupy and use this area on a daily basis. Mental Health problems don't discriminate and would benefit immensely from more funding. By having them as our charity we hope to increase awareness around CAMH as a resource that people who are living in Toronto can access, please help us with this goal by clicking the link below and donating!
