The Chicago Urban Race for CHD Research 2013 takes place on Saturday, April 27, at 11:30 a.m. Starting at Lucky Strike on E. Illinois Street, teams of two to four follow scavenger hunt clues that lead to various locations throughout the city. All proceeds benefit the Children's Heart Foundation.
Chicago Urban Race for CHD Research 2013
Whether they run, walk, or hop aboard the closest CTA vehicle, the participants of the Chicago Urban Race for CHD Research 2013 tear across the city in search of the next scavenger hunt mission. After decoding clues to determine their next location, teams of two to four consult their list of 10 challenges, which span from physical tasks to perplexing puzzles. Teams are allowed to use transportation tools such as GPS systems, smartphones, and trails of breadcrumbs not yet eaten by pigeons. The first three teams to complete 9 out of the 10 challenges receive a prize and, most importantly, bragging rights.
The proceeds of the urban race benefit the Children's Heart Foundation’s mission to raise research funds and awareness for congenital heart defects. Since the foundation's start in 1996, it has funded more than $5 million worth of clinical research in the United States and Canada.
