Registration Now Open for AM’s New “Can’t Miss” Event!
It’s time for you to sign up for Pierce County’s newest and most exciting event: “AMAZING QUEST to Understand Homelessness.” Visit the AM website now for more details and registration information about Amazing Quest, which will take place in October.
Associated Ministries is excited to be hosting this unique event for the first time this fall. It’s an innovative family-friendly experience that sends members of our community on an exciting scavenger hunt-style challenge with the goal of better understanding the realities faced by those who are homeless. It will be a bit like The Amazing Race television show, with activity stations and learning challenges located at various landmarks throughout Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood.
Because there are so many misconceptions about homelessness, AM has designed Amazing Quest to educate and inspire participants of all ages by illustrating the true daily struggles of our homeless neighbors in an insightful and engaging way, while also raising funds to make a lasting impact for those in need.
The Amazing Quest will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, beginning and ending at People’s Park in Tacoma. Teams of 2-8 people will sign up and visit locations around the Hilltop and participate in challenges to win points. These challenge points will be combined with points earned during a fundraising period prior to the event, with prizes awarded to the winning team. Teams can consist of families and friends, church groups, office teams, and others.
Funds raised before and during the event will benefit Associated Ministries and its work to address homelessness and empower people to live stabilized lives off the streets. Amazing Quest to Understand Homelessness is AM’s newest way of engaging our community to learn and make a difference in an impactful and memorable way.
