Team Calvert Crohns joins The Gott Company to hold its 3rd Annual Riddle Race/Scavenger Hunt Fundraiser in support of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation.
Prince Frederick, MD, Friday, August 24, 2018 – People around Calvert County may see fellow community members acting a bit odd on Saturday, September 22nd. Starting at 1:30 pm at Huntingtown High School many will meet up and head out to solve riddles in addition to completing challenges associated with Team Calvert Crohn’s 3rd Annual Riddle Race/Scavenger Hunt event known as “The Ultimate Riddle Race,” raising money for The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. This year Team Calver t Crohns has teamed up with The Gott Company’s three divisions; Fastop Food Stores, Magic Tunnel Car Wash, and QDog Fuels to hold the event.
Activities will include local businesses in Calvert County, but specific locations will not be released until the day of the race. Registered teams will test their knowledge by solving riddles as they search for clues that lead them to various business locations. Upon their arrival, they will have to engage in activities for points, completing the race before time runs out. At the end of the event, teams will gather at Rod N’ Reel located in Chesapeake Beach, MD to enjoy food, adult beverages, receive awards, and be entertained with music provided by Crow Entertainment.
Currently, there are only a few spots left for teams of two to six people to participate, but other opportunities for participation still exist. Interested groups can provide donations for giveaways, sponsor the event, or purchase tickets to the end of event celebration for only $20. Top sponsors include Citgo, Giant, as well as R & R Projects and Designs. A list of all event sponsors and donors can be seen at calvertcrohns.org. Provided donations and sponsorships will help cultivate funds needed to continue advocating for those affected by Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as finding a cure. Net proceeds generated from this event will go directly to The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, a 501c3 organization, dedicated to finding a cure, and are therefore tax deductible. Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis are two devastating chronic diseases that have affected over 1.6 Million people across the country including many of our local kids, teens, and adults according to The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
“As a parent of a child with a chronic disease, you want so desperately to take away their pain and suffering, this is one way that we can help, by raising awareness about the disease and raising funds to help find better treatments and hopefully a cure,” said Calvert Crohns Founder and parent, Greg Russell.
In past years, with the help of the surrounding community, Team Calvert Crohns’ events have generated close to 100 thousand dollars to support the foundation’s efforts.
