Miles Against Melanoma City Solve Scavenger Hunt

Taking it to the MAX!

October 25, 2014 11:30AM                                    The Friendly Spot, 943 S Alamo San Antonio


Miles Against Melanoma has teamed up with City Solve Urban Races to bring a day of chaos and fun for a good cause.   You are invited to get in on the action!

Teams of 2 and 4 will race throughout downtown San Antonio to solve clues.  The clues could be anything that requires you to use your wits or muscle in order to solve.  The first teams in with the fastest time with the most correct answers win!

Oh that's easy you are thinking.  But we forgot to divulge the most important part - you can either travel by foot or VIA.

Trust us when we say, so what?  You are going to have so much fun that the sweat you put into this won't even matter.  Food and libations are available for you before or after the race as well.

About Whole Foods:

Whole Foods Market was founded in Austin, Texas, when four local businesspeople decided the natural foods industry was ready for a supermarket format.   The original Whole Foods Market opened in 1980 with a staff of only 19 people. It was an immediate success. At the time, there were less than half a dozen natural food supermarkets in the United States.   They have grown to several hundred stores throughout the US.   Whole Foods makes a point to support local communities.  Miles Against Melanoma recently worked with them on their 5% day.  This is a day commited to the charity by donating 5% of all sales from that day.  We were able to raise over $6000 with just two stores participating.  We are honored and proud to have them as a title sponsor.
