Postponed: Boys Town Louisiana’s 1st Annual Downtown Dash Urban Scavenger Hunt

​​​Event Alert: Due to the uncertainty in the weeks and months ahead, Boys Town Louisiana’s Downtown Dash Urban Scavenger Hunt, origi​nally scheduled for June 6, 2020, will be postponed until the Fall. Additional details will be shared once a new date has been set. Stay tuned!



​​An Urban Scavenger Hunt to Support Children and Families We Serve

Perhaps you've participated in a golf tournament or a fun run…. But have you ever gone on a fundraising urban scavenger hunt around New Orleans with your family, friends or co-workers?

Our amazing city is rich in culture, food and history! You can explore it all by hitting the pavement with your scavenger hunt team to answer trivia questions, search for hidden clues, stop by some fun sights and compete against other teams to see who will come out on top!

Leading up to the big event, each team – and its individual team members – will create customized fundraising goals and team pages so they can secure donations in support of life-changing programs and services.

IT'S EASY! SET UP A TEAM TODAY!

  1. Start a Team!
    Anyone can set up a team. Just click here to create your own team page. After that, invite four family members, friends, or co-workers to join you! Your team can select to fundraise in honor of a Boys Town Louisiana program or residential home that is most meaningful to you. Make sure to come up with a fun and memorable team name!
  2. Ask for Support!
    There's no entry fee to register, but all teams are asked to commit to raising at least $250 to help the children and families of Boys Town Louisiana. But, don't stop there! The more your team raises between now and June, the more you are able to help kids and families at Boys Town Louisiana. Don't worry! We've got all kinds of tools to help you. Plus, we have individual and team fundraising incentives that can sweeten the deal!
  3. Do the Dash!
    On Saturday, June 6th, all teams will set off on a two-hour adventure around New Orleans' Central Business District to solve challenges and riddles, explore the city, and have fun! Winning teams will be awarded some exciting prizes.
    The Downtown Dash will start and end at the Rusty Nail, 1100 Constance Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. Registration & breakfast begin at 8:30 am, Downtown Dash begins at 9:30 am. After-Party & Awards to follow!
