The Hunt for Good is a three hour team scavenger hunt across the Chicago Loop and surrounding neighborhoods searching for ‘the simple good’ across the city. Teams will compete to solve riddles, complete tasks and discover works of art spread across the Loop and surrounding neighborhoods. Every successfully completed task earns points. The top 3 teams in each wave will be awarded medals and the top 3 teams overall will receive a team trophy. Teams will also have special opportunities to find prizes including event tickets, art pieces and gift certificates during their hunt! The Hunt for Good benefits Chicago non-profit, The Simple Good, whose mission is to connect the meaning of good from around the world to empower at-risk youth to become positive activists through art and discussion.
