Healthy communities start with healthy and engaged community members. How well do you know your community?

Take our Scavenger Hunt Challenge to find out. The scavenger hunt combines B’more history with healthy exercise and community exploration.

The rules:

  1. Each time you complete an item on the list,  snap a photo on Instagram using the hashtag: #Baltimorescavengerhunt
  2. When you’ve completed the entire hunt, be sure to comment below so that we can go through and confirm you as the winner.
  3. Involve your friends and neighbors – this is a community wide effort
  4. Creativity, hilarity, and artistic genius strongly encouraged

The deadline for completing the scavenger hunt is Labor Day.

What’s In it For You: Glory. Fame. Lifetime bragging rights. Most importantly – the opportunity to really get to know your community. Only by knowing what’s out there will you be able to make a difference.
