We are excited to welcome our friends and partners, United Social Sports (USS), to our blog today! Sports and arts might not seem all that related at first glance, but USS is all about bringing communities together–much like CHAW. Whether it’s through sports, arts, or something else altogether, building relationships matters…and you can do that in a pretty spectacularly #CHAWsome way with USS next month. We’ll let them take it from here!
HUNT DC, DC’s largest scavenger hunt, is back for its 5th year on April 25th and we are very excited to be partnering up with CHAW!
United Social Sports has a mission of bringing people together and building communities through social sports leagues, but leagues are not all USS is about: our CEO Robert Kinsler has been working on including other projects that help build communities and that speak to our members and their friends. It’s from this starting point that Hunt DC was born.
Memories of scavenger hunts as kids are often unique, cherished memories, and we wanted to bring that sense of fun and excitement back to our participants. Here at USS we don’t do things small, so our scavenger hunt is nothing like you have ever done before. We take our participants all over the city, trying to decipher riddles, while showing them areas of the city that they may have never seen, or get to see in a new light thanks to our challenges.
We want to make sure that our events bring friends together, help create new friendships, and enable participants to experience DC in a whole new way!
Whether it is trying a new food you’ve never tried before, or seeing a side of the Lincoln Monument you have never seen, you are sure to discover something new on the hunt. To add an extra touch of fun, this year we have included an outdoor after party where attendees will get to enjoy live music, lawn games, drinks, and food trucks. Participants can be sure that this will be a day packed with fun, from sunrise to sunset!
This year we are also partnering up with various nonprofits in the area, and we want to make sure that HUNT DC serves as a platform for these organizations to reach new people, raise money for their organizations, and to engage with the local community. These groups serve such an important role in our city, and this is our way of helping ensure that our DC residents are aware of all the great non-profit organizations that so enthusiastically work day in and day out on bettering our communities.
Our title nonprofit for 2015 is Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, otherwise known as CHAW. CHAW has had a presence on Capitol Hill for more than four decades and helps bring people together through the creativity and unity brought about by the creative arts. We are proud that this year’s nonprofit leaderboard prize is sponsored by CHAW and is just one more chance for participants to win!
