The Lycoming County SPCA is kicking off its annual walk on September 14, 2013, with a new twist. For the first time, the walk will incorporate a scavenger hunt. Participants may register at the SPCA in advance and receive an official ‘Scavenger Walk 2013’ hunt list. The registration fee is $20.13 and will provide the participant with a tie dyed ‘Scavenger Walk 2013’ shirt and official scavenger hunt list. Every registered walker will receive a chance to win a Kindle Fire, and for every scavenger hunt item found, they will receive an additional chance.
Participants are encouraged to collect pledges. The more pledges donated, the greater the opportunity to win great prizes. The individual who donates the most pledges will win a trip for two to Las Vegas. There is a $1,000 minimum to qualify and some restrictions apply. And for every $50 donated, the registered walker will receive a chance to win prizes donated by local businesses.
The ¾ mile walk will take place at the shelter on Saturday, September 14, 2013. Volunteers will be on hand at 9 AM to collect pledges and distribute prize drawing chances. The short walk will commence at 10 AM. Upon returning to the shelter, a light lunch and snacks will be provided. Registrations will be accepted on the day of the walk. A limited number of T-shirts will be available on the day of the walk and if supplies are depleted, shirts will be ordered for late registrants.
Participants will also have the opportunity to play doggie games, visit local vendor tables, and visit the shelter animals. Prizes will then be awarded while the collected pledges are tallied. All donation help support the Lycoming County SPCA in its care of homeless, abandoned and abused animals.
