The Great ACEC-BC Scavenger Race!

The Great ACEC-BC Scavenger Race!

About This Campaign

Let’s get together for an interactive and fun afternoon in support of kids like Verdann!


Date: Saturday, March 3rd, 2018
Time: 1:30 PM - 5:30 PM PST
Starting Point: ACEC-BC Building Lobby (409 Granville Street, Vancouver)
The Scavenger Race will take place in downtown Vancouver
Ending Point:
Charles Bar, 136 West Cordova Street, Vancouver

ACEC-BC has teamed up with United Way of the Lower Mainland to create a scavenger race for consulting engineering teams.

It's ‘the Amazing Race’ meets a good ol' nostalgic Scavenger Hunt! We're turning downtown Vancouver into one mega board game where you and your team will solve a set of clues, posting findings and photos on social media along the way for our judges. Only one group will win the trophy so choose your team wisely and come prepared to compete.

This will be a great team-building activity - families and friends and also welcome to participate in the afternoon event! 
#raceforUW

The race will end at the Charles Bar in downtown Vancouver, where appetizers will be provided and prizes will be distributed (cash bar will also be available).


Register your team of 4 players today and raise a minimum of $250 to compete on March 3rd!  More event details below.
