What is the Hunt for Hope?
The Hunt for Hope is an adventurous scavenger hunt! Teams are comprised of two or more participants. The ideal team size is four to six members. Teams must stay together throughout the hunt and cannot separate to complete tasks. You only need a digital camera or camera phone and transportation to participate. Hunters will be given a list of tasks to complete. Teams will have three hours to complete as many tasks as possible. Each task is assigned a point value, and the team with the most points wins.
When is the Hunt for Hope?
The event is Saturday September 30, 2017 with check in beginning at 1:30pm. Teams should arrive and start getting ready for checkin or can register if they haven't already done so. At 1:30 pm team captains can pick up the event packets and t-shirts. Snacks and drinks will be provided while scores are calculated. Silly fun prizes for winning teams as will as individuals.
How does the Hunt for Hope raise donations?
There is no participation fee for the Hunt for Hope. Your $25 registration offsets the cost of the event. Instead, teams and individuals are encouraged to reach out to their network of friends and family to collect donations.

What is Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC)?
IBC is a rare, fatal form of breast cancer. While it accounts for only 2-6% of all breast cancers, the 5-year overall survival rate is less than 30%, as compared to near 90% for all other types of breast cancers combined. IBC cannot be detected until a stage III, so more research is needed for this aggressive form of breast cancer.
