Heart Chase 2014 – Williamsburg

Date: Saturday, November 8, 2014
Time: Check-in opens at 9:30 AM
Location: Sullivan Square, New Town

Description: HeartChase is loads of fun… with a purpose!

HeartChase is a giant scavenger hunt…think The Amazing Race meets Minute-To-Win-It. Teams of 2-5 people compete in a chase through New Town Williamsburg to find and complete 10 checkpoint challenges and locate hidden donations tags. They use the HeartChase App to track their progress and point totals. The team with the most points after 90 minutes wins! But HeartChase doesn’t start (or end) there…

The Chase Starts Now!

While the event is free to play, chasing away heart disease is no small task and the AHA needs everyone’s help to make it possible. To put the fun in fundraising and jump start the competition, we’ve created a series of GameAdvantage Cards that improve your team’s chance to win. The first Game Advantage Card only goes to the first ten teams to reach $100. Additional advantages allow you to penalize other teams, jump the line, and more.
