THE HUNT 2022 supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County

About THE HUNT 2022

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 with 86 teams and more than 330 participants!

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.

    Your Support Makes a Difference

    There is no cost for Littles to participate in our program. Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations raised at this event to accelerate our growth and shorten a Little's wait time, recruit new Bigs to mentor our waiting Littles, and provide the professional support needed to create life-long relationships.

    Thanks to our Generous Sponsors
