The Big Little Scavenger Hunt – March 21st to April 3rd

WHAT IS THE BIG LITTLE SCAVENGER HUNT?

We can’t hold Bowl for Kids Sake safely this year, but we didn’t want to lose the things we love community spirit, a chance to have fun together….and of course fundraising for a great cause!

In addition to fundraising, The Big Little Scavenger Hunt includes things to find, selfies to take, puzzles to solve, and fun activities to complete. The tasks are focused on our love of PEI and the 3 Big Outcomes of our programs – Health & Well-Being, Life-Long Learning and Community Involvement!

So get your Business or Family & Friends team together and get ready to put the fun in fundraiser. The activities will be FLEXIBLE enough to do together or apart, so you can make The Big Scavenger Hunt work for you….and of course there are great prizes!

Register your team today and we’ll bring you everything you need to get started in a cool bag from PEI Bag Co.

Please note: Activities count if completed by one team member & can be modified for teams who aren’t in the same location.

WHAT DOES SUPPORTING THE BIG LITTLE SCAVENGER HUNT ACCOMPLISH?

Impact: When a child has a mentor, the odds they will be emotionally, socially & physically healthy increases dramatically…and when we have healthy young people in our communities, everyone benefits.

Mentoring is an essential service we must continue to provide, but we need your help! The money you raise during The Big Little Scavenger Hunt will help provide life-changing relationships for youth across PEI.

BEING A MATCHMAKER:

Creating a new mentoring match costs roughly $1200.  If your team raises $1200, you will be Matchmakers!
