Red Deer adventure race on Sunday

The BIG Pursuit

  • Apr. 17, 2017 12:30 a.m.

Central Albertans are encouraged to join The Big Pursuit on Sunday in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer and District.

During the timed contest, teams of four people will work together to solve a variety of clues and complete challenges at eight locations or checkpoints throughout the city. Some activities must be completed by one person and others may require full team participation.

The city-wide adventure race requires a designated driver and navigator along with the remaining team members.

Teams take off at 1 p.m. from Red Deer Sheraton and must complete the race by 5 p.m. The event ends with prizes and pizza.

The Big Pursuit is the primary annual fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer and District and replaces the former Bowl For Kids campaign held for the past 36 years. The goal is to raise $80,000.

Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs children and youth from single-parent families with adults through a mentorship progam. In-school mentoring and other programs also bring adults into children’s lives.

Pre-registration is required. For more information visit youthhq.ca/events/item/2016/big-pursuit/.
