THE HUNT is a county-wide scavenger hunt that features peer-to-peer fundraising for BBBS along with fun and engaging Missions that get HUNTers outside and exploring their local community. This event was new to our agency in 2021, but was extremely successful--we raised over $103,000!

This year, THE HUNT will run April 29th to May 22nd, 2022. Participants will form teams with friends, family, and colleagues, and work together to earn points and compete for prizes. Using a scavenger hunt app, teams submit photos/videos to complete Missions featuring Madison landmarks, local businesses, and fun at-home challenges. HUNTers are also encouraged to use a personalized fundraising page and ask their network for donations to BBBS. Working together in-person or apart, teams will earn points through completing Missions and raising money, with prizes for the top teams. Learn more about how THE HUNT works here
